Comments/Description
The International British/Dutch School was opened in 1967 in a two-room villa off Tahlia St. with the intention to provide an education to the young children of primarily expatriate British and Dutch workers, and those of a relatively limited range of other nationalities living in Jeddah. Soon known by its far more familiar title of Jeddah Prep, the pupils followed a largely British curriculum, and as the eldest children grew older, evolved to include the Grammar School which prepared children for O-Levels. In 1997, the School moved to its present site in Al Naim district of Northern Jeddah, close to the main airport and Medina Road. At this location, the School grew and stabilised at around nine hundred pupils, and following the opening of the Sixth Form in 2003, provided an education for children from the ages of three to eighteen. Girls and boys were and still are taught together throughout their time in the School, without segregation or distinction. Today, JPGS welcomes expatriate and Saudi Arabian families alike, with pupils from over fifty nationalities whilst retaining a family and community atmosphere.

Approaching the 50th Anniversary of the School in 2017, JPGS is the longest-established British School in the region. The School follows a modified form of the National Curriculum of England and Wales and the curricular set by the Cambridge International Examination board for IGCSE and A-Level public examinations. The School is heavily oversubscribed with waiting lists in almost all year groups. Many of the pupils matriculate to British Universities after leaving the School. The School is a member of BSME and SAIKAC.

JPGS is a friendly school where parents are seen as an integral part of the home - school relationships, the School is renowned for promoting traditional standards of discipline, hard work, good manners and courtesy to all members of its community.
