Lower School


As an academically selective school, the Lower School education embraces the challenge of pursuing academic excellence along side participation and fulfillment in a broad range of extra-curricula activities.

Every child has a personalised academic profile, which supports their academic success, and we celebrate academic achievement and excellence through Credits, Commendations and Send Ups.

We also aim to develop strong values in order to help guide our students in an ever increasingly complex world. Even from a young age our pupils grasp the concept of Leadership for a better world and the six attributes through our ‘child friendly’ attributes and the Harrow Lion Award, which is given to children who demonstrate one or more of the Harrow values.

In the Lower School we believe in developing the whole child and offering the pupils opportunities to achieve in all aspects of the curriculum. Every child has the opportunity to develop a portfolio of participation, passions and interests through our extensive Enrichment Activities.

At the heart of the Lower School’s unique educational philosophy is the importance of sympathetic and committed relationships and close personal tutoring, which is led by the expertise of our teaching staff. We aim to ensure every student is known, nurtured and encouraged in order to turn their abilities into achievements.

In the Lower School we nurture the partnership between home and school, and encourage our parents to take an active role in their child’s educational journey. Regular Open Mornings and Evenings are held throughout the school year.

Our vision is to create within the Lower School a vibrant, happy and proud community, which upholds the values and ethos and high academic standards of Harrow Beijing.
