Philosophy

The values that Harrow School (London) upholds and that have remained at its core throughout its 450 years old history and tradition, are adopted to support a shared understanding of what it means to be a part of the wider Harrow family of schools.

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

All students and members of staff will be nurtured in the values of:

COURAGE

so as to innovate and take risks, inspire change for the better; challenge adversity and complacency; make the most of opportunities; and put fear of failure to one side and stay the course, even when it is difficult.

HONOUR

so as to do the right thing; have the highest standards and lead by example; take responsibility; and, ultimately, be worthy of the trust of others.

HUMILITY

so as to recognize that one’s self is a work in progress and that struggling with weaknesses is essential to growth; and become increasingly aware that talent and achievement alone, however impressive, are not sufficient to succeed as a human being.

FELLOWSHIP

so as to build binding, constructive relationships that help all members of the School community to make a positive contribution; and to believe that the strongest relationships of all are based on faith, hope and love.
