The Grove, founded in 1820, is one of the oldest and most beautiful Houses at Harrow. In December 2016, the Harrow Governors approved a project for its renovation. The plan is to extensively remodel the existing House and to construct an extension to the north side of the building.
A campaign is underway to raise £2 - £3 million to fund this project, which will deliver:
- New Common Rooms and light, spacious communal areas.
- A substantial new boys' entrance.
- A new Tutor's room for one-to-one teaching support.
- Fit-for-purpose accommodation for the Assistant House Master and the Matron.
Contributions are being received at all levels from those with ties to the House: Old Grovites, current and past parents, and friends. It is heartening to see participation coming from such a broad base and every gift makes a difference, regardless of amount.
This much-needed renovation will make such a difference to the day-to-day lives of the boys. Furthermore, it will be a magnificent way for us all to celebrate The Grove’s 200th anniversary in 2020.
