Leadership for a better world The mission statement of the Harrow International Schools is ‘Leadership for a better world’, which draws on the great tradition of famous leaders emanating from Harrow School such as Winston Churchill, Pundit Nehru and King Hussein of Jordan. Leadership involves having the motivation, skills and determination to make a difference. It can mean leading from the front or influencing from within as an effective team player. Leadership for a better world is defined as six attributes that we aim for our students to increasingly demonstrate during their time in our schools and beyond. The leadership attributes are: • Contributing positively to community • Applying knowledge with compassion • Solving problems collaboratively • Solving problems creatively • Making just choices • Facing challenges with determination It is the intention of the Harrow International Schools to reinforce these themes throughout the learning life of our students in a number of integrated ways. All the Schools proud to bear the name Harrow are also proud that there is no ‘typical Harrovian’. A favourite School Song celebrates the fact that “the range of Harrow” is a broad one: “Welcome poet and statesman too…” A list of famous Old Harrovians might indeed name many statesmen, including Peel, Palmerston, Churchill, Pandit Nehru and King Hussein of Jordan; poets and writers as diverse as Byron, Sheridan, Trollope, Dornford Yates and Richard Curtis; Lord Rayleigh, the physicist and Nobel prize-winner; Fox Talbot, the inventor of photography; the archaeologist Sir Arthur Evans and Bruce the explorer; Sir William Jones, father of philology; Admiral Rodney and Field Marshal Alexander; and nineteen winners of the Victoria Cross. As with Harrow’s first international school in Bangkok, Harrow International School Beijing is strengthened through Harrow School’s active involvement in its governance and strategic planning.
