We accept students of all nationalities who meet our academic and social entry requirements.

Currently there are nearly 900 students of 34 different nationalities, attending the School. Students from Harrow Beijing command places in top world universities, particularly in the United Kingdom and North America.

How do you prepare your students to be the most efficient possible?

The Upper School curriculum is structured towards the external awards of IGCSE, AS and A-level, the standard used in England and Wales that has also been adopted in other countries. Students who enter the School and need EAL, known at Harrow Beijing as Language & Learning, will start in our English Intensive Curriculum in order to progress to the AS curriculum. The A-level is fully recognized by universities worldwide for matriculation.

Close personal tutoring is at the heart of the Harrow philosophy. We aim to offer each student and individual a personalized level of care, support and direction. By offering an effective program of tutor time, personal development time as well as a wide range of House events, close personal tutoring allows each student at Harrow Beijing to develop a comprehensive array of skills and talents.

The House system at Harrow Beijing is central to our students’ well being and personal development as they journey through their school career and progress into life beyond school. Based on the traditional boarding house systems of Harrow UK, it is a fundamental ingredient in providing a personalized learning environment in which each child is personally known by a key member of staff.

All students belong to one House and develop a strong sense of belonging and allegiance to their House over the course of their time at Harrow Beijing. The Houses afford students a smaller, closer community within the school, and broaden the range of activities and support available.

You are an international school into a Chinese environment, do you help children to find their place and manage with China/Chinese?DAV_5700web

As an international school operating in Beijing, we cherish our Chinese environment very much. We hope that our students can not only become excellent international citizenship but also indulge themselves into the Chinese culture they are living in. We celebrate Chinese New Year and other cultural festivals here at Harrow Beijing. Chinese language is also a great add-on to our students. Students will get valuable opportunity to live closely to the Chinese community.

All good schools are more than just teachers and students, they are a community. Harrow Beijing is particularly fortunate in this respect as we have an extremely vibrant and supportive community that enriches and deepens the educational experience our students enjoy.

The Friends of Harrow (FoH) is an association of dedicated parents and staff that provides practical support to enhance the educational experience for the students. FoH offers support for new families in having a smooth transition to school life and settling in Beijing. We organize social events and fundraising activities for both school and charities throughout the school year, with parents of all nationalities informed and involved.
