Harrow International School Hong Kong is the first international boarding and day school in Hong Kong. It opened in September 2012 and now has a combined roll of 1180 students from Early Years to Y13 in its Lower School and Upper School. Located in a magnificent crescent-shaped building with custom-built facilities near the Gold Coast, Tuen Mun, the School integrates elements of educational philosophy, practice and traditions from Harrow School in England into the diverse international community of Hong Kong to provide a highly distinctive education.
Learning activities and experiences in and out of the classroom focus on the development of the six leadership attributes outlined in the School’s vision statement Leadership for a better world:
1. Contributing positively to the community
2. Applying knowledge with compassion
3. Solving problems collaboratively
4. Solving problems creatively
5. Making fair and just choices
6. Facing challenges with determination
Pastoral Care and Boarding
Boarding can begin from Y6 in the Prep School on a weekly basis from Sunday evening to Friday evening. Just under 50% of students in the Upper School board, but all day students are members of a House. There are currently three boys’ and three girls’ Prep Houses (Y6 to Y8), and three boys’ and three girls’ Senior Houses (Y9 to Y13). House Masters and House Mistresses, supported by designated Upper School teachers who are tutors in their House pastoral team, have the primary role in the pastoral care of students and are responsible for managing the daily routines for boarders from getting up to going to bed. Liaising closely with parents to provide personal support for all students in the House, day and boarding, they encourage them to develop their talents, help them in times of difficulty, and guide them to pursue excellence.
The School provides merit-based financial awards for students who are gifted in academic work and/or extra-curricular pursuits where outstanding talent is evident. The aim of the scholarships and bursaries is to enable the School to draw gifted students from all sections of the global community, irrespective of their parents’ financial circumstances. With bursary supplementation, virtually full remission of fees is available depending on need. Scholarships and bursaries are available from Y6. Our current parents and students already appreciate the high quality of teaching and learning that they see and experience.
