One of the top British boarding schools for boys: best-rated for A-level results
This leading school for boys is one of the few in the UK to uniquely offer boarding education. Pupils from ages 13 – 18 receive a stellar education that includes the British A-Level and GCSE curriculum.
The advantages of the all-boarding system at Harrow mean that pupils enjoy the choice of an exceptional range of subjects in addition to their core academic curriculum, including extra languages, sports and hobbies.
Throughout their time at Harrow, all boys are offered one-to-one support to help them develop their potential in all areas, as well as individual support in preparing for their time after Harrow.
During their time at the school, all pupils will enjoy outstanding sporting facilities. The school aims to provide a very high standard of coaching and competition for the best sportsmen while enabling the less gifted to find something they can enjoy.
Traditional British sports including rugby and cricket have a strong presence in the school calendar, while sports such as Eton Fives and Harrow Football help to maintain the sense of tradition and sporting pride at the school.
While Harrow offers a thoroughly modern education, many students at this top British boys’ school also enjoy the sense of pride that comes from the school’s unique traditions.
These include specific dress code, terminology and school song and serve to help boys feel they are part of a community during and after their time at Harrow.
