About Jeddah Prep and Grammar School
The School was established in 1967 to serve the needs of the British and Dutch expatriate communities in Jeddah. JPGS was fifty years old at the start of the current academic year, and is the longest-established British School in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The School welcomes expatriate and Saudi Arabian families alike, with students from a wide range of nationalities whilst retaining a family and community atmosphere. The School is heavily oversubscribed with waiting lists in almost all year groups. Children in the Prep School follow a modified version of the National Curriculum of England and Wales, whilst the Grammar School prepares pupils for CIE IGCSEs and ‘A’ Levels. Many of the pupils matriculate to British Universities after leaving the School. The School is a member of COBIS, BSME and SAIKAC.
Saudi Arabia’s most cosmopolitan and diverse city, Jeddah is where an ultra-modern cityscape lies close to the UNESCO old city of Al-Balad, a piece of old Arabia at its best. The city offers many opportunities for fine dining and supports a diverse social life ranging from events based on compounds, diplomatic missions or hosted by local people. Jeddah lies on the Red Sea coast, boasting some of the best private beaches and unspoiled scuba diving to be found in the world, and is not far from extensive areas of mountains and desert which offer considerable opportunities for outdoor pursuits and unique cultural experiences. By road, Jeddah is well-connected to Mecca, Medina, Taif and other cities of the Hejaz region, whilst East Africa, South Asia and the Mediterranean are a short flight away.
Salary and Benefits
JPGS offers colleagues a highly competitive, tax-free salary with generous end of service benefits, fully-furnished accommodation on or near to the School campus, a relocation allowance, free tuition at the School for up to two children, BUPA Gold Medical Insurance and annual flight allowances. The school has excellent facilities and is fully resourced throughout.
