The Early Years section of Harrow has seen rapid growth since inception in August 2016. We currently have two full classes in Pre-Nursery and Reception with three groups in Nursery and plans for further expansion in all year groups. The section is predominantly housed in its own impressive wing of the school with a magnificent open space into which all Pre-Nursery and Nursery classrooms connect. There is also good provision in terms of outdoor play space. All classes are supported by a teaching assistant as well as a nanny. The section is very well resourced and specialist teaching is provided for music, sport, swimming, Mandarin and computing. All students entering the EYFS at Harrow are expected to progress into the Pre-Prep section after completion of the Reception stage.
