Pure Gold
Fifteen of our students achieved 10 or more A*-A grades thereby achieving the standard required for Harrow Gold Scholar status in our Sixth Form.

Harrow Bangkok’s Headmaster Michael Farley reacting to this year’s results:
‘I was delighted to witness the distribution of the 2017 exam results and see so many of our young super stars thrilled by their achievements and the certainty that they’ll now be enrolling in their university of choice.

This record breaking set of results comes as no surprise; there’s been a tremendous amount of hard work from the students and skilled support from our Harrow staff. That said, to achieve 61% A* and A grades at A Level compares very well with top tier UK independent schools and demonstrates that Harrow Bangkok, as the oldest British independent school overseas, has matured into a world class institution.

It’s worth noting that our approach is not to academically ‘hot house’. We admit children with a range of abilities and provide a ‘broad’ education with emphasis also placed on the arts, sport and development of attributes such as integrity, resilience and compassion.

These results confirm that our students are realising their potential and leaving us with a very bright future in prospect.’

Data just released by the University of Durham’s Centre of Evaluation and Monitoring
ranks Harrow Bangkok in the top 2% of international schools in the world and schools in the U.K. in terms of measuring value added to each student’s performance. On average we add 0.55 of a grade. In real terms this means that an average B pupil will move to an A grade at Harrow Bangkok between GCSE and A Level.
