About Harrow Haikou
Harrow International School (HIS) and Harrow Innovation Leadership Academy (HILA) Haikou is a key project for the Hainan government as they transform Haikou into an international education hub. Harrow Haikou is the first world-renowned educational brand in the Province and will transform concepts of high quality education across the region.
Strategically located in Jiangdong District at the north of Jiangdong Avenue and south side of Linhai Third Road, Harrow Haikou will provide K-12 international and bilingual education for foreign and local day and boarding students. Both schools are planned to open in September 2020 with a maximum capacity of 1,800 students. The first phase of student admission will target children age 2 –13 (kindergarten to Year 9/ Grade 8).
Central to our educational ethos is a commitment to foster the values of ‘Courage’, ‘Honour’, ‘Humility’ and ‘Fellowship’ in our students. Beyond outstanding academic outcomes, Harrow’s holistic education nurtures in our students a strong Chinese foundation with a global outlook through a unique bilingual curriculum that distilled the 450 years of educational excellence of Harrow School with the wisdom and traditions of Chinese culture.
Our Haikou campus covers an area of 96,673 m2, with a total internal floor area of 71,167 m2. The school is designed by world-renowned architecture firm Aedas and Harrow’s specialists, introducing a fresh, modern approach to the traditional British architecture originated from ‘Harrow on the Hill’, with their renowned buildings in north London, using contemporary design concepts to create a truly British, ‘Harrovian’ environment, with an eye to the future.
The school’s design fully embraces Harrow’s requirement to put the students first when considering facilities. The site provides a vibrant and creative atmosphere with garden landscapes partitioning shared areas. The generous space of the campus allows the students to explore their learning in a safe and clean outdoor environment, both within and extra to the curriculum. The semi-open design of the school buildings draws on the architectural features of Haikou’s traditional ‘balconies’, allowing for the range of space types across the site makes the school unique.
Harrow Haikou represents an extraordinary step forward in bilingual and international education for boarding and day students in south-eastern China. The school will set a new benchmark for innovative, values driven holistic education in the region.
