                                 Harrow International School Hong Kong is the first international boarding and day school in Hong Kong. It opened in September 2012 and now has a combined roll of 1180 students from Early Years to Y13 in its Lower School and Upper School. Located in a magnificent crescent-shaped building with custom-built facilities near the Gold Coast, Tuen Mun, the School integrates elements of educational philosophy, practice and traditions from Harrow School in England into the diverse international community of Hong Kong to provide a highly distinctive education.

Learning activities and experiences in and out of the classroom focus on the development of the six leadership attributes outlined in the School's vision statement Leadership for a better world: 1.        Contributing positively to the community
2.        Applying knowledge with compassion
3.        Solving problems collaboratively
4.        Solving problems creatively
5.        Making fair and just choices
6.        Facing challenges with determination
The School has a number of phases in its Lower School (K1-Y5) and the Upper School (Y6-Y13):
  • The Early Years (K1 and K2) follows the English based 'Early Years Foundation Stage' Curriculum.
  • The Pre-Prep School (Y1 to Y5) follows the English based 'National Curriculum of England (2014)'.
  • The Prep School (Y6 to Y8) offers a skills-based curriculum based on the National Curriculum designed to manage the transition from the homeroom environment in the Pre-Prep School to the more subject-specific environment in the Senior School.
  • The Senior School (Y9 to Y11) curriculum is based on IGCSE courses studied over three years.
  • The Sixth Form (Y12 to Y13) curriculum is based on A-level courses studied over two years, together with the Extended Project Qualification and the School's own Harrow International Perspectives course.
Boarding can begin from Y6 in the Prep School on a weekly basis from Sunday evening to Friday evening. Just under 50% of students in the Upper School board, but all day students are members of a House. There are currently three boys' and three girls' Prep Houses (Y6 to Y8), and four boys' and four girls' Senior Houses (Y9 to Y13).
