Harrow Innovation Leadership Academy - Zhuhai (Hengqin)Zhuhai (Hengqin)

Drawing on 450 years of education excellence from Harrow School, UK, Asia International School Limited (AISL) has almost 25 years of experience in quality education, opening international schools in Bangkok (in 1998), Beijing (in 2005), Hong Kong (in 2012) and Shanghai (in 2016).

Bringing world-class bilingual education to Zhuhai, the opening of Harrow Innovation Leadership Academy (Harrow ILA) Zhuhai marks a significant milestone for education in Zhuhai and the Greater Bay Area.

With a campus covering 47,915 m2, the school will accept students from Grades 1 to 7 (age 6 to 13) in its first year. Designed by renowned architects, Aedas and with input from Harrow’s school design specialists, at capacity, the campus can accommodate approximately 1,200 students, including 317 boarders (from Grade 4 and above).

Interactive outdoor learning spaces encourage students to engage with a natural educational environment; facilities linked by green pathways with a range of multipurpose spaces distributed across the campus, support learner collaboration and a sense of community.

Additional to our main site, we will be opening an attractive and spacious Harrow ‘Little Lions’ (LL) Early Years Centre alongside the launch of Harrow ILA Zhuhai.
