Sibford School is a British co-educational independent school in Sibford Ferris, west of Banbury in Oxfordshire, linked with the Religious Society of Friends. The school has both day and boarding pupils between the ages of 3 and 18.
Sibford School was founded in 1842 as a co-educational boarding school for the children of Quaker families. It is set in more than 50 acres (200,000 m2) of grounds surrounded by the Oxfordshire countryside.
Today the school accommodates both boarders and day pupils, of all faiths and none, and in September 2011 had more than 420 pupils.
The main building (The Hill) was opened by Dame Elizabeth Cadbury in 1930.
