House System

The Heart of Harrow

Modelled on the best practices of Harrow School in the UK, every Harrow student belongs to a House.

The House offers students a smaller, closer community within the school, broadening the range of activities and support available. A key strength of the House system is the vertical integration of different aged pupils. The development of House communities is characterised by strong bonds and support networks within each House. This creates a ‘family’ unit within which responsibilities are assigned to older students to care for and support their younger peers.

Each House has its own distinctive name, a House colour, House flags, and House Mistress or Master.

House events include: Sports Days, Charity Events, Dance and Music Competitions, and various Sports Competitions. In these numerous activities, community pride finds expression in a healthy competitive spirit.

The House Master or Mistress and Form Tutor knows each member of the House extremely well, allowing for close monitoring of academic performance 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.
