THE TWO-YEAR BRITISH GOLD STANDARD A-LEVEL PROGRAMME
AISL Harrow Scholars undertake a two-year suite of A-Level courses, regarded as the gold standard of British education and recognised worldwide for university entrance.
Students will have the opportunity to specialise in subjects they particularly excel at, studying to an advanced academic level. Many students also complete an ‘Extended Project Qualification’ (EPQ), allowing for the development of research skills and the exploration of a topic of special interest in even greater depth. Students also have opportunity to contribute to the management and leadership of the school by taking on key student positions of responsibility such as Senior Prefect, Prefect, Head Girl, Head Boy, Student Academic Leadership Team, and the Student Council.
In AISL Harrow Schools, the Sixth Form years are both challenging and exciting. Students are encouraged and supported to reach their full academic potential, whilst also developing the skills and attributes needed for success at university and in life.
AISL Harrow Schools have built an exceptional track record in university placement, based on outstanding grades and bespoke counselling support. Every year graduates from AISL Harrow Schools take up places at Oxford, Cambridge and Ivy League universities, as well as the best universities in Asia.

Specialist tutors are there to support the application process, giving individualised assistance to each student and his / her parents.
