Background
Harrow Bangkok - Educational Excellence for Life and Leadership

The leading British international school in Bangkok, Harrow Bangkok, is a day and boarding school for girls and boys aged 18 months to 18 years. Set in a 35 acre-garden campus, students study a British curriculum, receive world-class examination results, and gain places at top-ranking universities worldwide. The school’s extracurricular programme enables students to broaden their experiences and develop skills such as resilience, teamwork and leadership, ensuring they receive a holistic and meaningful education at Harrow Bangkok.

Harrow Bangkok is a school rich in tradition, both in Thailand,and as part of a family of schools which date back to 1572. It is both the largest member of the Harrow family, and was the original branded British independent school outside the UK.

World Class
Harrow Bangkok offers the very best holistic education, not just in Thailand, but across Southeast Asia. Educational excellence ensures Bangkok Harrovians flourish at school and beyond, enabling them to lead purposeful and meaningful lives, and equipped to influence their chosen profession and the world around them. This mission is built on our distinctive six-part promise to our students and their parents:
1. World-leading scholarship
2. Holistic education that builds leadership and personal qualities
3. Education that is safe, fun and purposeful
4. Preparation for the best universities and employment destinations
5. The reputation, tradition and heritage shared with Harrow London
6. Connections for life as an International Old Harrovian

Offering day or full-time boarding for students from Year 5 to Year 13 (ages 9-18), the priority in boarding is to provide the best pastoral care for all children, ensuring each individual need is met.
