The Wider Curriculum

Leadership and Service

At Harrow Shanghai, cultivating and nurturing the leadership potential in every child is at the very heart of the journey we have designed for our pupils. By constantly exposing them, day by day, to opportunities which will challenge them intellectually, physically, emotionally and socially, both within and outside of the classroom, we watch them grow and flourish.

In order to enhance leadership and service opportunities, our whole school programme develops key skills and leadership attributes. This programme begins in the Lower School, with incremental progression as pupils develop in age and awareness. In the Senior School, there is an expectation that the outreach and service programme is purposeful and increasingly pupil led. Ultimately, pupils will be global citizens, possessing international mindedness, and a clear understanding of the value of commitment and service to others.

Through the programme, our pupils develop six key Leadership Attributes:

  • Contributing positively to the community
  • Applying knowledge with compassion
  • Solving problems collaboratively
  • Solving problems creatively
  • Making fair and just choices
  • Facing challenges with determination
