Biddenham school is pleased to report more outstanding achievements by its students in their GCSEs following on from this year's excellent A-level results.

Top achievers included Tanvir Uddin, with an amazing eight grade 9s and two grade 8s and Hanifa Begum who gained five grade 9s and 8s,

This year, following the cancellation of exams, grades were awarded through a process of teacher assessed grades, against a national standard and approved and awarded by the exam boards.

"Our teachers have worked tirelessly to ensure students are all able to progress onto further education and study, and we look forward to watching them develop as healthy, happy, successful young people in the future.”
