House System

The Heart of Harrow

Modelled on the heritage and practices of Harrow School, London, every Harrow Appi student will belong to a House. Each House has its own distinctive name, a House colour, House flag and House Mistress or Master.

A key strength of the House system is the vertical integration of different aged pupils. This creates a ‘family’ unit in each House, within which responsibilities are assigned to older students to care for and support their younger peers.

The House system is the most distinctive characteristic of a Harrow education and is central to the school’s culture and success. The development of House communities is characterised by strong bonds and support networks within each House. The House Master or Mistress and Form Tutor know each student in the House extremely well, allowing for close personal tutoring for academic, as well as pastoral support. Therefore, if and when there is a problem, the student will swiftly receive well judged, individualised and effective support to get back on track.
