INSIDE SCOOP Harrow School 5 High Street, Harrow on the Hill, Middx, HA1 3HP Admissions: 020 8872 8007 • GL Full 13-18 The Inside Scoop from a current parent… From our very first tour to our son’s first day, our experience of Harrow has been one of seamless perfection and continues only to delight us at every turn. What we love most is how privileged our son feels to a be part of such an incredible institution. He has friends at the school who are talented at a range of different sports, academic subjects, music and drama. It is a wonderfully eclectic place with a hugely broad skillset between peers but one thing every boy in our house has, which clearly marks them out, is their kind and generous spirit. We chose Harrow because we felt the pastoral care was as strong as the education but this in particular has exceeded our expectations at every turn. We love the school and our son is absolutely thriving. As parents, we love: The school has an extremely strong sense of social responsibility - it is a kind place. The Design & Technology department - our son’s eyes nearly popped out of his head when he saw it! Shooting, fishing, skiing and sailing are some of the extra curricular sports the school does. brilliantly. There is never a dull moment. Our children love: The inspirational lectures by industry leaders. The ski trip to Canada with race training that led to his selection for school boys racing in Wengen. Ordering Dominos pizza to be delivered to the house on a Saturday night! HEADS UP Harrow prepares boys with diverse backgrounds and abilities for a life of learning, leadership, service and personal fulfilment.” (New Head Master Alastair Land spent four years at Harrow as Deputy Head Master and returns to the School after a three-year headship at Repton) Alastair Land, Head Master Open days: Visit for upcoming dates. 42 Read the full review on ★ 2019
