Message from the Director of Admissions

Harrow International School Hong Kong is a selective school, which seeks to admit those pupils with the aptitude, ability and personality who are most likely to thrive in and contribute to its diverse international community.

Choosing the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make. Just like you, we believe that the happiness and success of your child are key foundations upon which their future is built; that is why we are a school where every child is valued, every child is encouraged to give their very best, and every child has the chance to grow in confidence by participating in a wide range of inspirational learning experiences.

The School’s vision statement Leadership for a better world and its Boarding ethos strongly influence the key areas of emphasis in the School and, therefore, the factors that are important in its admissions procedures and decision-making about which pupils to admit. They are:

  • Academic ability.
  • Commitment to a broad range of co-curricular activities.
  • Developing relationships in and around the School community.
  • Alignment with the School’s ethos.


English is the only inclusive language of the School and applicants need to be proficient in it in order to access the full range of the curriculum and the community. We wish you all the best as you go through our Admissions process and look forward to welcoming you to Harrow Hong Kong.

Mrs. Susan Phillips
Director of Admissions
