JPGS Houses

The main aim of the House System at Jeddah Prep and Grammar School is to encourage maximum participation in school activities and monitor the progress and welfare of every pupil in the school. It is also the basis for home/school contact, careers advice and community projects. In addition, the JPGS House System provides opportunities for competitions and events in a wide variety of fields including sporting, artistic, cultural and academic activities. Trophies are awarded to winning Houses in each competition and individual awards and certificates are provided to pupils who excel in attainment, progress and citizenship.

All pupils are assigned to one of the three Houses in the school:

The school has assigned a House Coordinator to oversee that activities and events are safe, competitive, fair and fun. In overall charge of the House is the House Master or House Mistress, assisted by a Deputy.

The ways the Head of House can assist pupils:

  • The House Master/Mistress will ensure that each pupil gets the most out of his/her school life.
  • He or she will see that pupils settle into school life well, and that they make good progress as they go through the school both academically and socially.

The House Master/Mistress and the Deputy with the assistance of two House Captains (pupils) will ensure that all pupils in the House work hard, attend regularly, are punctual, well-mannered and also maintain the high standard of appearance expected at Jeddah Prep and Grammar School.

The House Master/Mistress, assisted by House Captains, also organises the teams which will represent the House in the various competitions.

Members of staff are all assigned to a House. Teachers can award a maximum of five House Points to deserving pupils.

  • One House Point = Good
  • Two House Points = Very Good
  • Three House Points = Excellent
  • Four and Five House Points = (Reserved for Senior Teachers, Heads of School and Headmaster) are awarded to pupils whose achievements have surpassed the previous three-point scale and/or represented JPGS in our wider community, nationally or internationally.

These can be awarded for a number of reasons e.g.

  • Excellence (sporting, behaviour, attendance, etc.)
  • Participation (theatre, community events, etc.)
  • Perseverance (personal hardship, dedication, etc.)
  • Effort (extra-curricular activities, community spirit, etc.)
  • Courtesy (assistance, generosity, kindness, etc.)

Many schools in Britain use the House System to further the development of their pupils into positive and respectful members of society. We at Jeddah Prep and Grammar School continuously strive to improve to standards that may benefit our pupils.
