OUR MISSION All of our students will develop as leaders contributing to a better world, realise their academic potential and succeed at the university of their choice. Our innovative Leadership in Action (LiA) Programme is structured to develop leadership attributes in six areas: Service, Charity, Teamwork, Creative Expression, Leadership, and Challenge. These values are embedded into all aspects of School life, to enable our students’ ability to influence their world for the better.

CONTRIBUTING TO THE COMMUNITY Involving students in service encourages them to transform the natural tendency to serve oneself to serving others. Community service is a fundamental aspect of our students’ education, as they consider their place in the world, and their ability to improve the lives of others.

APPLYING KNOWLEDGE WITH COMPASSION The human trait of possessiveness can be transformed to a desire to share by involving students in charitable activity. Additionally, we specialise in high quality boarding; immersing children in our ethos promotes friendship, support for others, and trusting and open interactions with teachers.

SOLVING PROBLEMS COLLABORATIVELY Co-operation and collaboration emerge when students work together towards common objectives. True to the tradition of all the Schools in the Harrow Family, the House System is at the heart of our students’ lives. It encourages co-operation and friendly competition within a supportive environment.

SOLVING PROBLEMS CREATIVELY When students express themselves creatively, they can motivate and inspire others. Creativity is a vital strand running throughout our Curriculum, inside and outside the classroom, to encourage students to challenge their perceptions and think innovatively when problem solving.

MAKING JUST CHOICES When students consider the issues at hand with the needs of others as the objective, they become Servant Leaders. We consistently produce students who excel academically. Yet a Harrow Bangkok education also focuses equally on pastoral support and LiA activities that help shape our students into future leaders.

FACING CHALLENGES WITH DETERMINATION Placing students in challenging situations, outside their comfort zone, develops the determination to see a challenge through to completion — a valuable attribute when seeking to improve the situation for others. Our ethos forms the core of our sporting philosophy, which promotes giving one’s best and pursuing excellence, whilst fostering self-confidence and collegiality.
