Learning in Nature Without Limits - Co-curricular
Harrow Appi students enjoy two distinct co-curricular (extracurricular) seasons: white and green.
The white season focuses on winter sports. A race academy caters for elite skiers and snowboarders; expeditioning and mountaineering challenge the more adventurous. More than just for recreation, our white season programme, and the unique natural environment of Appi, are central to the holistic development of well-rounded students; there are opportunities to ski as often as four times in the week.
The green season gives wonderful opportunity in the great outdoors, focused on golf, tennis, and cycling. The golf and tennis academies provide world-class coaching utilising outstanding facilities, whilst the programmes for both road cycling and mountain biking are ambitious.
White Season: Winter Sports
In winter, all Harrow Appi students ski or snowboard at least twice during the week. Additionally, many will also take the opportunity of weekend skiing.
Coached by professionally trained ski and snowboarding instructors, each season students are divided into ski groups based on ability. This allows for dedicated, focused instruction for all levels, beginner to expert.
In addition to the standard winter sports programme, Harrow Appi runs a Race Academy. Our very best skiers train for a variety of racing disciplines, challenging themselves against each other, and against other local clubs and schools.
Whatever their ability when they join us, every student leaves Harrow Appi as a confident skier or snowboarder. Many will become accomplished winter sports athletes, competing in races, and developing a lifelong affinity for mountain environments.
Green Season: Summer Sports
Focused on golf, tennis and cycling, the green season extends the opportunity to enjoy the natural setting of Appi Kogen. Students will enjoy these activities, at minimum, twice per week and, for those wishing to develop expertise, perhaps three to four times per week.
Appi itself offers world-class golf and an extensive tennis facility. The hills and forests beyond Appi offer countless routes for road and mountain biking. Within the academy programme, elite coaches develop students in each of these disciplines, supporting students of all abilities to specialise and achieve at a high level, including in competition.
In addition to the white and green sports academy programmes, students are given the opportunity to join a wide range of other activities. With plenty of choose from, there is something for everyone for instance in innovation and digital technology, music and other creative arts, and service to their community. Examples include:
|Football||Swimming Academy||Astronomy Club|
|Debate||Japanese Tea Ceremony||Badminton|
|Creative Writing||Model United Nations||Basketball|

|Horse Riding||Table Tennis||Boxing|
|Rock Band||Choir||Film Club|
