On behalf of Asia International School Limited (AISL) – the holding company of all Harrow branded schools, Harrow International Management Services Limited (HIMS) oversees the running of Harrow Beijing. HIMS provides technical advice and assistance to support the management of the school.
The school operates under an agreement with the Governors of Harrow School in the UK. Under that agreement, the school is permitted to use the Harrow name and Arms, and is required to have a Governing Board which, inter alia, is responsible for the overall philosophy, vision, culture and strategic direction of the school; compliance with governing documents and law; and ensuring that appropriate policies and procedures are in place for the day to day operations. The Governing Board is required to include two Governors of Harrow School London (or their representatives), two representatives of the school’s owners, and one Director of HIMS.
The Governing body of the school is composed of the following members:
- A Chairman
