Background
Harrow Bangkok is a school rich in tradition, both in Bangkok and as part of a family of schools dating back to 1572. It is the largest member of the Harrow family, and it is the original branded British independent school outside the UK.
Harrow Bangkok aim to offer the very best holistic education not only in Thailand, but across Southeast Asia.
That aim is founded on four key beliefs:

• That academic rigour and intellectual curiosity lead to success in examinations. Examination results give access to the very best universities and employers. Harrow Bangkok students celebrate enthusiasm for learning in school and are lifelong learners.

• That success in life is not determined by school grades alone. Personal qualities and values ultimately determine whether academic potential is translated into meaningful careers. Harrow Bangkok’s Leadership in Action programme ensures Harrovians are well balanced, resilient, and innovative young men and women; with the leadership skills necessary to turn opportunities into realities.

• That a happy child will be a successful child. Students who are safe and happy will achieve their potential. At Harrow Bangkok, academic success and the development of the whole person are rooted in exceptional pastoral care, with lifelong friendships and contacts made. This supports the development of emotionally intelligent young men and women, determined to make a difference in the world.

• That Harrow Bangkok employ the very best staff and actively support their career development. The school is set within a superb 35-acre garden campus, with world-class facilities for day students and boarders. Facilities alone, however, are not enough; the staff are the heart of our success, modelling the values Harrow Bangkok hold dear each day for the students to emulate. Passionate about their subjects, they place a premium upon understanding each student’s individual needs, nurturing their development.

Education at Harrow Bangkok is inspiring, culturally rich, aspirational, and life-enhancing. They have a lot of fun along the way too. Harrow Bangkok graduates are quietly confident, curious, creative thinkers, who possess the skills and qualities to make a difference in the world and at the same time enjoy personal fulfilment.
