About the organisation

Siddiqui’s International School was founded in 1974 by late Mr. Saghir Siddiqui. After the War of liberation in 1971 he took a patriotic step to take our academic excellence to international standards was initiated by bringing the Edexcel board of examination to this country. Hence Siddiqui’s became the first school to start the O’level curriculum in Bangladesh. Soon after, other popular schools took on this initiative and a completely new medium of study was introduced to this country.

After the sad demise of Mr Saghir Siddiqui, the school was taken over by Riffat Ahmed Siddiqui. With her cheerful personality and affectious conviction, she persevered to take the school to new heights. She stands as an idol and inspiration to school and teachers alike
