The sisters explained that doing their GCSEs together meant they could support each other through the process, as well as help each other revise for their exams.

Commenting on the school’s overall performance, , Tony Rushworth, executive headteacher of The Bicester School, said: “I am delighted at the results that TBS has achieved for 2022 which are better than our pre-pandemic scores in 2019.

“The school has shown a tremendous level of professionalism and resilience in negotiating through the challenges of the pandemic as well as successfully merging the Year 11 students of Bicester Tech onto our school roll.

“I would like to thank our staff and students for all their excellent work this year and wish our class of 2022 students great success in their next step, many of whom will be studying in the new TBS sixth form state of the art building.”
