Sibford School

Sibford, Banbury

Established in 1842 as a co-educational boarding school for the children of Quaker families, Sibford School is set in more than 50 acres of grounds surrounded by glorious Oxfordshire countryside.

Today the school accommodates both boarders and day pupils, of all faiths and none, and is currently home to around 400 pupils, aged between three and 18. The Quaker values of the school, which seek to recognise ‘that of God in everyone’, remain at the heart of all we do. We believe passionately in the uniqueness of every pupil and know it is our job to seek out and nurture their gifts and develop their confidence to meet the challenges of the 21st century.
