School Summary
:
US, UK, curricula.
GCSE, IGCSE, SAT, IB exams.
1500 students, 2-18 yrs.

The Continental School (officially known as the British International School, Jeddah) offers a British-style international curriculum to boys and girls from Pre-school to IB (approximately pre-K to Grade 12) levels. Patronage is offered by some 20 embassies. The medium of instruction is English with the highest percentage of students being British. Most teachers (90%) are British.

On completing Year 9 at the Continental School, students prepare for the International General Certificate of Secondary Education through Cambridge International Examinations. After completing their IGCSE students may then apply to continue at the school in the IB programme for a further two years or move on to many destinations worldwide, including public and private schools and colleges in the UK and the USA.

The British International School (The Continental School) Jeddah terms are similar to the three terms of the UK system, with some flexibility to accommodate the Islamic calendar. With slight variations, the school day runs from 08.00 to 16:00, with many weekly afternoon clubs and activities to choose from.

Housed on a new purpose-built campus, the school has three separate sections, each with its own individual buildings, play areas and administration. There are some 90 rooms, eight science laboratories, four computer rooms, a large sports hall, a gymnasium, a multi-purpose hall, a refectory, three libraries, a clinic, two pools and an outside sports area with running circuit and 100m sprint track. Additional facilities have recently been constructed.

Whilst the The British International School (The Continental School) Jeddah is of mixed-ability intake, new applicants must produce their most recent school reports, and undergo admission interviews to establish the appropriate placements, to identify any EFL or SEN problems, and to gauge the degree to which the school could accommodate them.

Recently the The British International School (The Continental School) Jeddah has had lengthy waiting lists, and it is essential to make enquiries about the availability of places before any commitment to a move to Jeddah. Places for new external applicants to the IGCSE courses and the IB Diploma are few; students wishing to enter Grades 9/10/11/12 are therefore advised to seek entry to the Continental School at an early stage.
