  • Date of Birth of Child
What will you receive if you complete this form
  • When we receive a completed form from you, we will email you to make sure we have fully understood what you want to know, if anything is unclear.
  • We will also offer you a free online consultation to better understand what you and your family are looking for from a UK education provider.
  • Then we will confirm that the request for information has come from a parent/guardian, not a child (under 16). If this is unclear from the information provided, we will separately email the respondent and ask for a return email copying in a parent/guardian, or ask for added confirmation of the age of the respondent. If necessary, we will then verify the identity of the parent/guardian with a separate email requesting confirmation of this relationship before any further information is sought from the respondent and before any data is shared with any 3rd party (requested school/university). Also, all ongoing communications will be copied to the parent.
  • Following this, we will email the right person within the faculty office of the chosen University or Boarding school admissions department, you want to make contact with, and copy you on the email, so you can see your request has been actioned.
  • The chosen University or Boarding school will then seek your permission (EU regulations, relating to EU data subjects) to send you the information you have requested and will make you aware of their own data protection policies.
  • If you have given permission for the Boarding School or University to contact you (EU regulations, relating to EU data subjects) we will ensure you get a reply from the University or School of interest.
  • We will then follow up with you to make sure your questions have been answered and you feel able to move forwards with your planning. 
  • We are happy to provide any further assistance we can offer at any stage of your application process to any UK educational institution featured on the site.

  • Key information

    Sidcot school is a mixed school with approximately 580 students of which over 120 are boarders and typically less than 20% of pupils are international, but come from a wide range of countries. The school offers a broad range of qualifications and students can board at Sidcot from Year 7 (age 11+). The younger boarders live in smaller, family orientated houses, whilst our Sixth Form students board in larger houses with more independence.

    Sidcot has a strong reputation for the Creative Arts, Maths, Science and Equestrian. In the classroom students can study; a one year GCSE programme, the standard two year GCSE course, A Levels, BTECs and the IB Diploma. Outside the classroom students can choose from over 100 extracurricular activities ranging from archery to trampolining, maths club to hill walking.

    Sidcot is a mainstream school that aims to inspire and challenge students and help them achieve the very best they can to become confident, successful learners and responsible citizens. The school is not selective beyond an expectation that each student is able to access the school’s curriculum as a whole, subject to reasonable adjustments being made.

    EAL- Students whose first language is not English are assessed and may be offered the opportunity to study an IGCSE in English As An Additional Language alongside or instead of first language English GCSE. They may also be offered a programme of individual or small group English lessons, which are put in place to develop their general English language skills and to help them with English for their subjects. The hourly rate for individual lessons is £37 and group lessons £20.


    Sidcot is situated in the village of Winscombe in North Somerset close to Axbridge and Cheddar. Sidcot is about 10 miles from Bristol airport.
