From The Headmistress
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. If you are educated at Jeddah Prep and Grammar School you will have respect for yourself and others; you will be qualified to enjoy a fulfilling career, confident that you have the skills to balance a personal and professional life. By the time you leave the school, you will have that true sense of self-worth which will enable you to stand up for yourself and for a purpose greater than yourself, and, in doing so, be of value to society.
