About Us

QuIET is a UK registered charity and Quaker recognised body. QuIET owns the buildings and land at Brummana High School (BHS), exercises oversight and appoints governors. It also raises funds for BHS, and for Friends United Meeting in the United States, who own and oversee Ramallah Friends School in Palestine.


Our heritage

British and American Quakers have been joined in support for Quaker education in the Middle East since 1872. Sybil and Eli Jones from New England founded the school at Ramallah, and convinced Theophilus Waldmeier to become a Quaker. Waldmeier then went on to found Brummana High School, with funding from English and American Friends.
