There is no doubt in my mind that Harrow London is an extraordinary School. One of the main reasons for this is having a history which is 450 years old. Harrow was given its Royal Charter by Elizabeth I in 1572. From the outset the school’s founder John Lyon had a vision for what a Harrow education should be and in particular that it should be built around values and academic enrichment.
Today as Harrow continues to flourish so do the children receiving this remarkable education. The present global pandemic has really reminded us all of the importance of courage, honor, humility, and fellowship. For example, I can never forget the joy when we were at last able to welcome back students to school and noting how much they enjoyed being back with their teachers. The community and fellowship at Harrow Beijing have never been stronger and I am immensely proud of all of my staff and pupils.
This is a school which has grown together and where we are all committed to ensuring our students can flourish in a world which is changing with breath taking speed. Yet I am sure that John Lyon would be delighted to see our students showing the same joy in education as those first Harrow pupils.
