Harrow International School is a selective school for two to 18-year-olds that has strong academic results and a reputation for excellent extra-curricular activities. Located on a nine-acre site in Tuen Mun, Harrow Hong Kong has one of the most spacious campuses in Hong Kong. Opened in 2012, it has boarding facilities from Year 6.

The Harrow-ness that defines one of the world’s oldest and most famous all-boys boarding schools is felt throughout the corridors and classrooms of this Hong Kong franchise, from the Harrow straw boater and blazers to the House system. Its Britishness also shines through in the architecture of the eight-storey school building, which has been designed to resemble the sweeping Royal Crescent in Bath. The cost of an education here will always reach the HKD 200,000 mark, but there are scholarships for academic excellence and outstanding talent in music, art, drama, sport or other talents.

What the school says: “Many aspects of the school are characteristic of Harrow: high expectations of students and teachers; excellence in academic work; excellence and a high degree of participation in extra-curricular pursuits; high quality pastoral care; a genuine focus on the individual; and the development of leadership skills.”
