About Harrow International School Hong Kong
Harrow International School Hong Kong is the first international boarding and day school in Hong Kong. It is the third school in the Harrow family of schools in the Asia region and provides a British independent style of education from Early Years to Year 13 in custom-built facilities in a stunning physical location in Hong Kong. The School combines elements of educational philosophy, practice and traditions from Harrow School in London with the international mindedness of a diverse student body in Hong Kong.
Having opened in September 2012, the School roll is now 1030 and further expansion will continue to take place over the next few years.
Harrow International School Hong Kong occupies a spectacular site on the Gold Coast in the New Territories near Tuen Mun. The Lower School includes Early Years (K1 and K2) and the Pre-Prep School (Years 1-5). The Upper School consists of the Prep School (Years 6-8), the Senior School (Years 9-11) and the Sixth Form (Years 12-13). Up to half of the places in the Upper School are for boarding, either weekly or full. There are currently three Prep School Houses for boys, three Prep Houses for girls, four Senior School Houses for boys and three Senior Houses for girls.
The School’s vision statement, Leadership for a better world, underpins what happens in the classroom, in extra-curricular activities and pastoral care in the School. Collectively, we aim to develop in our students the desire and skills to make a positive difference through people to the communities in which they live. The School combines elements of educational philosophy, practice and traditions from Harrow School in London with the international mindedness of a diverse student body in Hong Kong. There are clear differences compared to Harrow: the School is co-educational; it encompasses a much wider age range; it offers both boarding and day places; and it embraces and aims to reflect its location in the vibrant international community of Hong Kong.
