Jeddah Prep and Grammar School
At Jeddah Prep and Grammar School, our pupils are full of energy, drive, intelligence, good humour, ambition and irrepressible enthusiasm. As a school we endeavour to harness the extra ordinary ability of our pupils, guide it in the right direction and give children the confidence to unleash their passions both in and outside of the classroom.
We strive to make our young adults self reliant and confident, as well as responsible. We delight in their academic prowess as well as their ability to be extremely enjoyable and capable company. Most importantly, we are proud of the diverse range of backgrounds and personalities that our pupils bring to make Lower School such an exciting place.
From the Head Teacher
Our curriculum is exciting; innovative; stimulating; cutting-edge; different and blends our traditional grammar school education with unusual challenges designed to stretch even the most able young child.
We teach the basics thoroughly along with a wide range of skill based activities to seek to broaden the mind and develop natural inquisitiveness. Enthusiastic and knowledgeable staff from the Prep School provide the majority of the teaching with additional classroom input from Grammar School subject specialists.
Recent years have passed in a blur of activity and excitement for the school! Staff and pupils together have quickly established an ethos of hard work, mutual respect and a joy in discovering and learning together.
At Jeddah Prep and Grammar School we see education as forming a sound foundation for life-long learning. All children can learn, and we can develop within each student the desire to know, the tools to seek and the ability to find, understand and use information. Strong communication between home and school forms the basis for the caring, nurturing, family atmosphere that is essential to our School. This atmosphere promotes an excellence in teaching that results in high academic achievement and enables children to reach personal excellence at all levels. Students flourish in a supportive environment which challenges learners and nurtures individual talents.
Our primary aim is to encourage each student to be self-confident, inquiring and tolerant, with an independent mind, and to be an individual who respects the differences of others. A great education is not just the knowledge that is acquired and it is much more than the sum of academic results; it is about forming character.
Living in Jeddah
Jeddah is the capital of the Western region of Saudi Arabia and is home to Saudis who have settled here over centuries from other parts of the world or been influenced over time by foreign traders – introducing a different, maybe more relaxed sense of living than one might find in other parts of the Kingdom. In Jeddah life starts in the evenings and there is nothing Jeddawis enjoy more than socialising at night around dinner. The evenings are family time whether that is for business or social events. Many spend their evenings along the Jeddah Corniche, barbecuing or picnicking.
