Sustainability is a driving factor behind Sidcot School. They use organic feed for the horses in their Equestrian Centre and the school heating system has solar panels on the main teaching block and the Junior School roof as well as using biofuel to heat the whole school.

Sidcot is a zero-landfill school with all their waste going to be recycled or converted to Refuse-derived fuel (RDF), that is baled and used as fuel to produce electricity.

They have recently installed an electric charging point to facilitate visitors and staff that currently have electric cars and encourage others to purchase them. The School has water bottle refilling points and offers reusable cups in the staff room and student Hub for hot drinks and has cans rather than plastic bottles wherever possible. The Hub also uses Fairtrade coffee, the waste coffee grounds are then added to the compost for the School gardens. All cooking oil used in the Catering Department is collected and recycled.

Extra-curricular activities include environmental and gardening activities both within the School and the local community.
