What the school says...
Being a great school is about providing the best possible education - one that creates an appetite for life and develops the talent to live it productively. It is about learning and scholarship, nurtured by exceptional teachers who are leading lights in their chosen fields. It is about combining a breadth of experience through sport, creative and performing arts, CCF and many other character forming activities. It is about providing pastoral care that goes well beyond basic welfare and focuses on developing and maturing the individual, both emotionally and spiritually.

These values underpin everything we do and achieve at Harrow. ...Read more
