5 High St, Harrow HA1 3HP
Our Super-Curriculum stretches boys beyond the (I)GCSE, A-level and Pre-U syllabuses, through activities that support learning above the measurable outcomes of examination results. Around 20% of our beaks (teachers) have doctorates and many undertake their own writing and research.
ARTS AND CULTURE
Shakespeare at Harrow
Harrow has a rich tradition and ongoing commitment to Shakespeare in performance, dating back to 1941, when Speech Room (our assembly hall) lost part of its roof following bombing in the Second World War, and the School took the opportunity to stage a production in conditions reminiscent of hakespeare’s original Globe Theatre.
Surrounded by acres of sports fields, astroturf pitches, a golf course, a swimming pool, a sports centre, and numerous tennis, rackets and fives courts, we offer a breadth of sporting opportunities to match every interest and ability. Many boys play several sports, and unique occasions like the annual Cricket match versus Eton at Lord’s provide memorable highlights in the calendar.
LEADERSHIP AND SERVICE
Boys experience opportunities for leadership throughout their School career by helping to run extra-curricular programmes, by having a position of responsibility, and by carrying out their duties. All of these activities have service at their core.
Entrance to the school is by competitive tests, Common Entrance and interviews. The school is oversubscribed with more than 4 applications to each of the 160 places awarded at the 11+ Pre-Selection Assessment. It particularly looks at interests outside the classroom in weighting its decision. This said, Harrow requires a minimum pass mark at Common Entrance of 60% although studying Latin or Greek is expressly not a pre-requisite for securing a place.
The 11+ pre-selection assessment takes place at Harrow in September and October two years before entry. The assessment consists of an intelligence test; short composition, interview and references.
Just 24 places are available at Sixth Form. The School looks for outstanding achievement in sport, music, drama or academically in considering whether to award a place. The sixth form assessment process includes written tests in the areas of proposed A-level study and interviews.
