Happy anniversary to us! S 2
017 marks the 175th anniversary of Sibford School and to celebrate this milestone we are planning a number of special events throughout the year, the first of which will be a Burns Ceilidh & Supper which will take place on Saturday 4 February.
This event is for parents and staff and will feature fun, food and dancing with live music from ‘16 Strings and a Dead Goat’.
Tickets will cost £20 per person and will be available from both the main school Reception and the Junior School office from the start of term. Keep your eyes open for news of other exciting events as the year progresses.

ibford’s Junior pupils are hoping to attract some prickly visitors! The youngsters, from nursery class through to Year 2, have created two hedgehog houses for their Forest School area and are now waiting to see if the new ‘des res’ designs will attract suitable inhabitants.
Four-year-old Ella-Mae explained: “We used a hammer and some wood to make the houses.” Five-year-old Eliza added: “We decorated the top with moss and leaves so that it was camouflaged from the foxes.”
Reception class teacher Helen Hoy said: “Hopefully the houses will provide a safe shelter for hedgehogs to hibernate during the winter. The children have really enjoyed making them and finding out about the importance of helping hedgehogs which are rapidly becoming an endangered species.”
