The first international boarding and day school in Hong Kong
Located in a magnificent crescent-shaped building with custom-built facilities near the Gold Coast, Tuen Mun, the School integrates elements of educational philosophy, practice and traditions from Harrow School in England into the diverse international community of Hong Kong to provide a highly distinctive education.
Harrow Hong Kong is an all through day school for pupils between K1 (3 years) to Year 13 (18 years). Boarding begins from Year 6 in the Prep School on a weekly basis from Sunday evening to Friday evening. Just under 50% of pupils in the Upper School board, but all Day pupils are members of a House. There are currently three boys’ and three girls’ Prep Houses (Year 6 to Year 8), and four boys’ and four girls’ Senior Houses (Year 9 to Year 13).
What’s special about the school:
- High levels of academic achievement with significant value-added academic performance, leading to top public examination results and entry to prestigious universities across the world.
- A diverse, high quality Leadership in Action programme that inspires a desire for excellence and a breadth of activities. Distinctively, it includes the Super-Curriculum, which is integrated into the School timetable for all pupils, supported by opportunities for further enrichment outside the timetable.
- High quality pastoral care that, with a strong boarding ethos and House system at its heart, promotes an inclusive School community in which its members feel happy, secure and valued, and that places emphasis on the personal formation of the character of each pupil. Supporting this is a bespoke personal, social and health education programme called Facing Challenges that encourages the development of resilience and a positive, solution-focused approach to any challenge.
