Harrow International School Hong KongHong Kong

Harrow International School Hong Kong is the first international boarding and day school in Hong Kong. It is the third school in the Harrow family of schools in the Asia region and provides a British education from Early Years to Year 13 in custom-built facilities in a stunning location in Hong Kong. The School combines elements of educational philosophy, practice and traditions from Harrow School in London with the international mindedness of a diverse pupil body in Hong Kong. Having opened in September 2012, the School roll is currently around 1450 and the school achieves the best results in Hong Kong at A-level and GCSE with pupils going on to study at some of the top universities across the globe. We were delighted to have featured as one of the top 100 Schools in the World, top 10 Schools in Asia and we are the leading School in Hong Kong according to the 2020 Spear’s Index. Harrow Hong Kong is, however, about much more than academic results and our pupils excel in music, drama, sport and art as well as service and charity work, which is an incredibly important part of their School experience.

The Music Department at Harrow Hong Kong is well-established and is responsible for a range of extra-curricular activities. In the Lower School, the Head of Lower School Music is responsible for coordinating music, with the Director of Music maintaining an overview across the two schools. In the Upper School, all pupils study Music in Years 6, 7, 8 and 9 and it is taken as an option at GCSE and A Level (the Edexcel specification is followed for both). 

 The department is well-resourced with four specialist classrooms (two equipped with a suite of 30 iMacs with Logic and Sibelius software), 16 practice rooms, a large rehearsal room and a departmental office. Staffing in the Music Department currently comprises six full-time academic teachers, working across the 4-18 age range, along with a Music Administrator. In addition, there are around twenty Visiting Music Teachers who are line managed by the Director of Music. Pupils throughout the school are exceptionally well-motivated and results in public examinations are very good. Each year, the department organises many concerts, recitals and competitions involving choirs, orchestras and soloists, as well as numerous small ensembles.
