Michael Parry with top scoring IGCSE Students  

BISJ students out-performed all other schools in Jeddah and across all of Saudi Arabia in last June’s IGCSE exams, winning awards in eleven different subjects with two overall awards for best across a range of subjects. No other school in the country picked up as many IGCSE awards.

The awards are calculated by Cambridge International Exams, the world’s largest provider of international education programmes and qualifications, for the IGCSEs that students sat last June, using strict criteria to maintain high and consistent standards worldwide across all subjects.

Louis Bezodis, Deputy Head Teacher, comments “We are very pleased that our students have won so many of these prestigious awards. They worked hard for their exams and it is tremendous that their work, and that of the teachers, is recognised in this way.”
