Our Purpose

Harrow prepares boys with diverse backgrounds and abilities for a life of learning, leadership, service and personal fulfilment.

To achieve our purpose, we place particular emphasis on five key areas:

Scholarship - Encouraging intellectual curiosity, independent thought and effective learning habits.

Opportunity - Ensuring boys perform to their potential, thereby increasing their educational and career opportunities.

Character - Developing and maturing the individual, enabling boys to uncover the talents, skills and values to be of good influence beyond Harrow.

People - Admitting boys who will thrive and contribute at Harrow, and recruiting and nurturing staff who facilitate excellence.

Operations - Providing environments, infrastructure and functions that set us apart.

Our purpose and these priorities are underpinned by our Values – Courage, Honour, Humility and Fellowship.
