Sibford Ferris is a village and civil parish about 6.5 miles (10.5 km) west of Banbury in Oxfordshire, on the edge of the Cotswolds, England. It is sited on one side of the Sib valley opposite its larger sister village, Sibford Gower.
The Manor House was built in the 17th century and remodelled in the 18th century. In 1842 the Society of Friends extended the house and converted it into a boarding school, Sibford School. The main buildings of the school relocated to a campus to the south of the village during the 1930s and in the early 2000s the manor was sold for private housing.
The village has a small shop and post office, which also serves the rest of Sibford.
