Harrow International School Bangkok
Harrow Bangkok is the original Harrow International School in Asia, founded in 1998. The school is thriving, with its own reputation for educational excellence as one of the leading schools in Thailand and South East Asia; the Harrow name is synonymous with quality.
Our school blends 450 years of Harrow School’s high academic standards, traditions, and service to the community with innovative education in a vibrant Thai setting. We educate around 1,800 students on a beautiful 35-acre garden campus in north Bangkok, with world-class facilities for day students and boarders. The school is all through with students from Early Years “Little Lions” to Year 13.
Our results of 59% A*-A at A level and 70% A*-A at IGCSE in 2023 are a testament to our outstanding provision, and every year Harrovians take up places at some of the most distinguished institutions across the world.
The campus benefits from a range of facilities (all available to staff after hours), which alongside classrooms include floodlit tennis courts, a lake for watersports, a swimming pool, gym and extensive grass pitches.
Our holistic educational philosophy provides extensive super-curricular opportunities for enrichment through the diverse Leadership in Action programme, prioritising leadership development along with skills and personal qualities which help to translate academic potential into meaningful and fulfilling lives after students graduate.
We benefit from close links with Harrow School along with the other schools in the Harrow family. Education at Harrow Bangkok is at the cutting edge, with our commitment to the High Performance Learning philosophy and world class education.
