Harrow Beijing new campus
Operating in close association with Harrow School in London, the Harrow International family of schools share the same vision, ethos and high standards. After 8 years operating on two sites, Harrow International School Beijing moved to an expansive newly constructed purpose built campus in April 2013.
Here, beijingkids takes us on a tour of the new campus. It's spread over a whopping 66,600 sqm of land, and boasts state-of-the-art classrooms and facilities. Harrow’s campus brings together the lower school, which was in Tongzhou’s Grassetown, and the upper school, which was in Anzhen Xili near the Olympic stadium. The whole campus is constructed around two large center courtyards, while students of all ages are at the campus, each phase of learning has its own section of the campus.
Early Years classrooms are bright and colorful, with large windows letting in plenty of natural light. Early Years also has its own cafeteria and library. Throughout the campus, there are wide halls with large windows lighting the hallways. There are 13 fully-equipped science labs and in the upper school, a spacious, bright library.
Harrow kept the environment in mind when constructing the new campus; not only is there geothermal heating and air conditioning, but there is a school-wide air filtration system to ensure optimal air quality. The air filtration system is part of the geothermal heating and cooling system. A sealed unit, it recycles and refreshes air as it passes through double sheets of filters and then filtered through a filter charged with ions. This separates the particles in the air, causing the particles to fall to a tray and the clean air to be circulated throughout the school.
Harrow’s new indoor multi-function sports facilities are spacious, with courts for basketball and other sports, as well as a climbing wall. Outside, there are two full-sized football fields, one of artificial turf and one of grass turf; one smaller artificial turf field; and four outdoor tennis courts.
