A Tradition of Educational Excellence
Harrow School, known as one of the most prestigious boarding schools in the world, was founded in 1572 under a Royal Charter granted by Queen Elizabeth I. It is located in a leafy 300-acre estate, encompassing much of Harrow on the Hill in north-west London. Harrow School examination results are impressive, with 64.5% of GCSE grades at 9, 8 or A.
Sir Winston Churchill, the first prime minister of India Jawaharlal Nehru and King Hussein of Jordan are among the school’s alumni.
More recently, many pupils have gone on to successful careers in business, the law, medicine, the armed forces, the arts and the media.
What is Harrow School Online?
Harrow School Online is an innovative schooling experience that brings the richness and heritage of a Harrow School education directly into the homes of boys and girls anywhere around the globe. This new two-year A Level programme is run in partnership with Pearson, and is suitable for academically ambitious 16-18 year-olds interested in a British education.
Harrow School Online combines the flexibility of modern “anywhere, anytime” learning with rigorous, full-time academic study of the British curriculum, led by UK-based teachers. Pupils can study at a time and a pace that suits them, individualising their learning and structuring their timetable so that their education fits around their lives.
Benefits of Online Learning
Online schooling has a number of unique benefits such as:
Convenience and flexibility
Online courses allow pupils to plan study time around the rest of their day, teaching them how to balance study and work with family and social commitments.
The mix of delivery mediums (e.g. visual, auditory) in an online school caters to different learning types.
The promotion of self-discipline
By taking online classes, pupils develop stronger self-discipline skills, which often translate to other areas of their life.
Visibility for parents
As the majority of pupils attend online lessons from home, parents have unprecedented visibility into their children’s education.

To apply for admission to full-time enrollment at Harrow School Online or to study just one to three subjects you need to:

A day in the life of an Online Harrovian
Imagine Henry, an Online Harrovian.
Aged 17, Henry lives in Munich, Germany. He has his sights set on the University of Oxford, a career in neuroscience, maybe even a Nobel Prize one day - which is why he is thrilled to have been accepted to Harrow School Online.
Henry is engaged in a rigorous, bespoke programme of International AS and A Levels, super-curricular electives and co-curricular activities. Henry’s main focus is his academic work. He loves that his daily lessons include deep, challenging material that he can master at his own pace, live online sessions with his teachers and peers, individual guidance, and video masterclass segments featuring teachers from Harrow School.
Henry is also developing his leadership skills and perfecting his English by leading a school-wide science book group and preparing a TED-style talk about gaming and neuroplasticity. He additionally serves as a volunteer at Martha-Maria’s Hospital for one hour each week.
Although he is busy and focused, Henry always enjoys the time he spends in weekly House meetings where he has made some good friends from Russia, Malaysia and the UAE. He is looking forward to the chemistry field trip next March, when he’ll get the chance to meet up with them in person.
Meanwhile, Henry’s parents are delighted to have discovered this premium-quality but affordable schooling option for Henry. They are also glad to have him nearby for his last years before university.
