Choosing the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make. Just like you, we believe that the happiness and success of your child are key foundations upon which their future is built; that is why we are a school where every child is valued, every child is encouraged to give their very best, and every child has the chance to grow in confidence by participating in a wide range of inspirational learning experiences, from the very first moment they walk through the door.
We pride ourselves on being an extraordinary community where people really matter, results count and where a passion for excellence drives everything we do. We are committed to offering a real breath of education. We feed our pupils’ minds, but we also care passionately about their character development and their happiness.
Our outstanding and highly qualified staff are dedicated to delivering a rich curriculum and programme of activities which challenge our pupils to explore ideas for themselves. Whether engaged in learning in the classroom, or through musical, artistic, sporting, enterprising or charitable activities, our pupils are encouraged to connect with their local, national and international communities and to have a desire to do good. Indeed, the School’s vision statement Leadership for a Better World focuses on aiming high, excellent service, and character education, which means that our pupils are prepared for life in the 21st century.
Our approach to education means that Harrow Shanghai pupils achieve top examination results, and develop into interesting and compassionate young people with strong values, who have a desire to make a positive difference in the world they go on to shape – just as the great Harrovians of old.

'Our daughter Bella had a wonderful year 1 and now again a very satisfactory year 2 in Harrow because her amazing teachers. Her class teachers work very closely with our family in terms of updating learning progress and addressing certain issues. They are very responsible and truly care about the welfare of our children. For those specialist teachers, teaching subjects like mandarin, music, PE, swimming, instrument, they are also just one email away if we wish to have an update or discuss certain issues.
The current management is very open minded to parents suggestions and always find ways to work closely with parents to make our school a better place for our children. We feel our voices are heard, discussions are followed and parents opinions are respected.'
