See and feel the difference at Harrow International School Bangkok 

The new British Ambassador to Thailand, Mr Brian Davidson, visited Harrow International School Bangkok in January 2017  to officially open the brand new Pullman Lower School.

He was impressed by the host of brand new campus facilities which have been created as part of an extensive campus redevelopment project. But the strength of Harrow Bangkok is the combination of new state-of-the-art facilities across its green 35-acre campus, while retaining a warm, family feeling across the whole school, from the redeveloped EYC complex to the brand new Rayleigh Sixth Form Centre and new Boarding Village complex.

Director of Development Liz Hammond comments: "New visitors to the school often comment on the friendly atmosphere on campus, and we are lucky that many of our students study at Harrow Bangkok from Pre-Nursery all the way through to A-level. The best way to get a sense of what we do is to visit us for yourself to see and feel a Harrow education. We can arrange informal one-on-one tours of the school at any time; our Admissions Team are happy to arrange this."

Mr Michael Farley, Headmaster agrees: “We always welcome visitors to see the Harrow experience for themselves. Just as our educational and pastoral programmes are continuously being improved, so are our facilities to benefit the whole school community.”
