Introduction to Harrow International School Shanghai
Founded in 2016 as part of the Harrow Family of Schools, Harrow Shanghai is connected to 450 years of global excellence via the unique Harrow genetics which bind our schools together. A Harrow Shanghai education is based on the same ethos and identity that has characterised a Harrow education in the UK for centuries and here you will find a school where the best of Western and Eastern traditions, history and heritage are seamlessly fused.
Choosing the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make. Just like you, we believe that the happiness and success of your child are key foundations upon which their future is built; that is why we are a school where every child is valued, every child is encouraged to give their very best, and every child has the chance to grow in confidence by participating in a wide range of inspirational learning experiences, from the very first moment they walk through the door.
We pride ourselves on being an extraordinary community where people really matter, results count and where a passion for excellence drives everything we do. We are committed to offering a real breath of education. We feed our pupils’ minds, but we also care passionately about their character development and their happiness.
Our outstanding and highly qualified staff are dedicated to delivering a rich curriculum and programme of activities which challenge our pupils to explore ideas for themselves. Whether engaged in learning in the classroom, or through musical, artistic, sporting, enterprising or charitable activities, our pupils are encouraged to connect with their local, national and international communities and to have a desire to do good. Indeed, the School’s vision statement Leadership for a Better World focuses on aiming high, excellent service, and character education, which means that our pupils are prepared for life in the 21st century.
Our approach to education means that Harrow Shanghai pupils achieve top examination results, and develop into interesting and compassionate young people with strong values, who have a desire to make a positive difference in the world they go on to shape – just as the great Harrovians of old.
