Creative Reading
At Harrow Beijing, we aim to develop a love of reading with all our students. We want to encourage our students to develop into well-rounded individuals with an extensive knowledge of the world and to help with this we provide a number of reading initiatives and guides to help them along their literary journey.
The opportunities we provide include Battle of the Books, House Battle of the Books, The Subway Lines, The Panda Book Awards, the Sixth Form Reading Challenge, our annual whole school Book Week celebrating books and reading, and bespoke library lessons delivered to Year 5 - 8. We also provide recommended reading lists for everyone from Early Years through to an Oxbridge reading list for our older members of the school.
It is proven that reading activities encourage wider reading which in turn improves mental health, reduces stress levels, improves general knowledge, helps develop our empathy with others, expands our vocabularies and improves our communication, focus, concentration and writing skills. Reading books exposes our students to new ideas while allowing them to think and process information which ultimately improves their overall analytical skills.
‘You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.’ ― C.S. Lewis.
Learning Support
The Learning Support Department at Harrow Beijing is dedicated to creating engaging learning environments that foster academic success and address barriers to learning in the least restrictive environment possible.
The department strives to work together with other teachers, families and community professionals to foster the healthy development of all our students, including those with or without a formal diagnosis of a special educational need or disability.
We are well resourced across the whole school, with a full-time Learning Support Coordinator in both Lower School and Upper School, and a number of dedicated Learning Support and Intervention Teachers. The department works collaboratively with school leaders and teachers to ensure that our commitment to quality first teaching permeates all of our practice.
The Learning Support Department's remit also involves organising appropriate access arrangements for those students meeting the strict criteria of the JCQ and CIE regulatory examining boards. As students approach formal exams at IGCSE and A Level, the Learning Support Department works closely with the Educational Psychologist to support those students entitled to additional access arrangements.
The Learning Support Department maintains and shares an interest in current educational research, training and resources in an attempt to provide optimum outcomes for students and appropriate support, advice and training to the rest of the teaching body.

Gifted & Talented
At Harrow Beijing, provision for gifted and talented students is a critical area of our school curriculum. There is an emphasis throughout on setting aspirational targets for all students, and enabling gifted students to develop both a deeper understanding of subject areas and a love of those same subject, alongside growing their talents within specific disciplinary contexts. Equally, our staff work outside formal lesson times with students identified as gifted and talented, whether as a part of the department extra-curricular offering, or in informal lunch-time drop-in sessions. This extends to competitions such as the UKMT or Chemistry Olympiad, as well as initiatives within the Harrow Group of Schools such as the Harrow History Essay Competition or Creative Writing anthology.
When students enter Sixth Form, university coaching plays a key role in both guiding our students towards subjects and courses which meet their individual gifts and talents, as well as 1:1 coaching from subject specialists continuing to develop these interests. The Extended Project Qualification is a key part of this, allowing students to further their understanding of a particular area, with support from a subject specialist.

Campus News
Harrow Beijing City Campus recently held the 'Autumn Online Art Exhibition' in which a collection of artworks by Early Years children under the different themes of 'Traditional Chinese Culture', 'Colours of Seasons', 'My Self-Portrait' and 'Recreating World Famous Paintings' were exhibited. We were very impressed with their bold use of colours, unlimited creativity and being totally immersed in their imagination of the world.
At the end of September, City Campus held Wellbeing Week activities for Early Years students. Wellbeing Week is a week to provide Early Years children with knowledge, skills and tools to manage their own mental health and wellbeing. City Campus held the event as an opportunity to raise awareness of the importance of looking after ourselves.
Harvard University has tracked the development of over 700 people for 75 years, and found that a good parent-child relationship at an early age plays a crucial role in children's mental health, family relations and future career. In line with this more and more parents are considering how to foster children through early childhood, and help them grow up developing strong relationships.
After a restful summer break, Harrow Beijing welcomed the arrival of the new academic year!
In the last week of the Academic Year 2021/22, Harrow Beijing held Speech Days in Early Years, Lower School and Upper School. It is a Harrow tradition to celebrate students' achievements in academic, sports, art and other aspects of the past academic year with certificates of honour. With the joint efforts of the Harrow Beijing family, our students have continued to make academic breakthroughs and developed their comprehensive skills in a holistic manner. We would like to thank all Harrow teachers, students and parents for their resilience in dealing with unprecedented challenges this year. We are very proud of the progress made by our students, and grateful for our role in the children’s learning experiences and growth.
On Wednesday, the Harrow Beijing City Campus held a winter carnival. Winter Olympics sports such as Bobsleigh, Curling and Skiing were introduced to the students in the activities. Support and anticipation for the upcoming Beijing Winter Olympics were expressed by colouring iconic symbols. In addition to experiencing winter sports, proper outdoor exercises also enhanced children’s physical fitness. Children raced on the playground pushing tires with great passion and enjoyment. The cold didn’t bother them at all!
Last Thursday, students at Harrow Beijing City Campus performed in a joyful, winter-themed show. Bells jingled all the way, and everyone celebrated the end of the year with spectacular programmes. A musical production ‘Frozen’, including singing and dancing, gave the audience an immersive and entertaining winter experience. The Kung-Fu performance displayed the spirit and discipline of our students. Between each performance, teachers and students expressed their holiday wishes. We also had a special visitor last week at City Campus! Santa travelled from the frozen North Pole to the slightly less frozen lands of Beijing to meet the children and hand out presents. He was glad to come once again to City Campus and he wishes all the children of the world a very happy holiday!
This week, Friends of Harrow held the appreciation meals at Hegezhuang Campus and City Campus to express the gratitude to all teachers and staff at Harrow Beijing. The appreciation banquet is one of Harrow Beijing’s traditional celebrations dating back to its establishment. Although many FoH activities have been cancelled due to the epidemic in the past two years, FoH still managed to go ahead with this cosy reunion in the cold early winter in Beijing. In addition to the exquisite decoration and delicious food, FoH also customized printed masks and postcards as souvenirs. Harrow Beijing would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank Friends of Harrow and all our Harrow parents for your long-standing support.
Last Friday, City Campus held the traditional Harrow Ducker. Usually an outdoor event, the AQI forced us indoors. This didn’t stop the fun though. Students raced around a complex obstacle course, going through tunnels, over benches, in tyres, and down slides in order to be crowned the Ducker winner! Each Year group raced, divided into boys and girls. Head of Sports, Mr. Allan Longmuir, ran with our front runners as they completed two laps of this tricky course. The top three runners were rewarded with bronze, silver, and gold medals. Each student received a ribbon for their participation.
