Welcome to the Upper School section of the website. I hope that by exploring its pages, you will get a feel for our focus on academic excellence underpinned by a diverse breadth of extracurricular activities that take place in this unique community.
The Upper School consists of the Prep and Senior sections of Harrow Bangkok. Students enter Prep from the Lower School on completion of Year 5 whilst remaining in the familiar Junior/Prep building. Students are introduced to a dynamic, 21st Century relevant curriculum in Years 6, 7 and 8, designed to further develop essential transferable learner skills through subject specific lessons, House events, leadership opportunities and challenge days. Students then enter the Senior School in Year 9 where they are further prepared for the challenges of studying for IGCSE and GCSE courses in Years 10 and 11. Students who achieve at least the minimum grade requirement and show the right attitude and aptitude for further study are offered the opportunity to progress into our Sixth Form to study AS and A Levels in Years 12 and 13.
A school is defined by its students. At our school in Bangkok, what does it mean to call yourself a Harrovian? Our students are confident without arrogance, highly knowledgeable, they use their knowledge compassionately to contribute to their community. They are skilled at working independently and show creativity in solving problems. They face challenges with determination and learn to make choices that are just. By the time they leave, they clearly display our six leadership attributes:
Contributing positively to the community
Applying knowledge with compassion
Solving problems collaboratively
Solving problems creatively
Making just choices
Facing challenges with determination
The learning environment at Harrow Bangkok promotes excellence in every way. Using our world class facilities, our teachers use the latest technology to support learning where necessary. Students are pushed to do their very best and supported when needed. Our pastoral system ensures that student well-being and academic excellence are given an equal priority.
I hope you will not only visit our website but you will also make an appointment to visit us here in Bangkok. I very much look forward to speaking to you about the potential that Harrow Bangkok can discover, develop and nurture in your son or daughter.
