Sports

Located on the most spacious international school campus in Bangkok, with our fantastic indoor and outdoor facilities and dedicated staff, there are numerous opportunities for students to participate in a range of sporting programmes offered by Harrow Bangkok. 


Programmes

Harrow Bangkok provides an extensive Sports Programme in line with the school’s tradition of providing a broad, holistic education.  Harrow Bangkok seeks to provide ‘sport for all, whilst striving for excellence’. All students are given ample opportunity to experience a range of sporting activities that they enjoy. We aim to promote achievement, progress and excellence, whilst at the same time fostering the development of self-confidence in every child.

After school each day as part of the extracurricular programme, students have the opportunity to take part in over 50 different sports training activities. A huge breadth of sports are on offer and range from individual activities to the more traditional team sports. Through these activities, students learn the value of being physically active and develop positive personal and social attitudes.


Academies

Students can opt to specialise in one of our dedicated sports academies to a highly competitive level or try something new.

Our Sports Academy Programmes are now in their third year.  We have five dedicated academies that offer sport year-round to our students in football, gymnastics, swimming, tennis and golf.  The academies offer an entry point into the respective sports, but they also ensure top athletes receive focused training.  Our highly qualified coaches and state-of-the-art facilities provide the optimum environment to nurture athletic talent.


Staff

Harrow Bangkok has over 80 experienced and motivated coaches involved in the coaching and preparation of our sports teams for their participation in competitive events across the year.
