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.

While many schools adopt a ‘one size fits all’ approach to university guidance, all AISL Harrow Schools offer a dedicated University Admissions and Careers Guidance Centre. Specialist tutors are there to support the application process, giving individualised assistance to each student and his / her parents.

Finley Jones, Harrow Shanghai

When I first realised I would be moving to Harrow Shanghai as a result of the AISL Scholarship, the prospect of changing schools was daunting; my mind raced through countless assumptions: What if I don’t fit in? What if I don’t make any friends? But from the very first day, my worries were reassured. I immediately felt welcomed and at home thanks to the warmth and kindness of the students and teachers and found myself settling in in no time. After a month and a half here, I can say with confidence that choosing A Levels at Harrow was the right choice for me. With A Levels, I get to study the subjects I’m most passionate about: History, English Literature and Music. This is helped of course by the excellent resources and teaching the school provides. Though initially hesitant about having one-on-one classes, I quickly came to value the efficiency and flexibility this style of learning offers, and its focus on individualised learning. Outside of academic subjects, Harrow also offers an eclectic range of activities to participate in to help develop important skills such as leadership, my personal favourite being the frequent House competitions we have, from the Inter-house Football Competition to the House Film Competition. As a student who wishes to study Film as a major in University, the Film Competition was a fantastic opportunity to showcase and further hone my skills as a filmmaker. I’m grateful for this wonderful opportunity that the AISL Scholarship has given me and will do my best to make the school proud! 

Yi Sum Yue, HARROW SHANGHAI

“Why did you choose Harrow?” I took a deep breath as I remembered the list of points I made before the AISL interview: small student-teacher ratio, small student body, great community…Little did I know the true meanings my words possessed.

The summer before my upcoming school year lingered with shadows of restlessness towards my new academic adventure. Thankfully, Harrow’s welcoming community meant this quickly came to a halt, as students from my form invited me to a welcome lunch. Their inclusivity finally made me understand my words in the interview. So, on the first day of school, there was an unexpected yet natural feeling of safety, and an odd yet genuine sense of belonging.

This welcoming experience has made me reflect on how I could learn from them and implement those same values into my own lifestyle. The close relationship between teachers and students along with the attention given to each one of us has inspired me to be more comfortable in asking questions and participate in classes. Their supportive and accepting nature has also encouraged me to take more chances in exploring my interests out of classrooms. This is the ultimate goal of a school: providing a safe and comfortable environment so students can grow and constantly redefine who they are through the process of learning. I am very grateful to be part of the Harrow Shanghai family, and I look forward to making full use of the invaluable resources Harrow has to offer!

Michael Zhang, Harrow Beijing

As the AISL Harrow Scholar this year, ever since joining Harrow Beijing in September, I have immediately bonded myself with the extraordinary school community – whether that be making lots of new friends, actively taking part in various school clubs and leadership roles, or receiving a truly holistic education from exceptional school faculties and teachers. Harrow Beijing, along with its extensive resources, history, and the great faculty, is a genuinely welcoming and kind “family” at its core, which is what I have really experienced over the past month. Inside the classroom, both students’ and teachers’ commitment to academic excellence is fascinating. Currently taking A Level English Literature, Economics and Mathematics, as well as the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) – an independent research thesis, I am truly impressed by Harrow teachers’ dedication to such a supportive tutoring. Apart from academics, the outstanding university and career guidance team and the counseling team is always there to encourage and assist students with our paths in school and beyond. Outside the classroom, there are just countless leadership opportunities and super-curriculars to explore and immerse into, too. Harrow is really a warm and tremendous community – from the food, the sports teams, to the offering of a multitude of opportunities. I am delighted to have joined Harrow, and I really look forward to excelling here! 

Matthew Han, Harrow Hong kong

Since joining Harrow Hong Kong in September, I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here, with the school’s community and academic support being the two aspects I am most impressed by and grateful for. As a boarder, I am lucky enough to be able to spend time with friends and teachers, all of whom I am delighted to have built up a strong relationship with. In particular, I am grateful to my housemaster and housemates for helping me integrate almost seamlessly into life at Harrow Hong Kong. On the academic front, I have been impressed by the dedication shown by teachers and students alike to educational excellence. In the classroom, my teachers not only teach the syllabus content in a clear and concise way, but also encourage us to stretch ourselves beyond the A Level curriculum, exposing us to challenging problems to help develop our lateral-thinking skills. I have also received guidance from Harrow’s exceptional university preparation team, ranging from discussions about which university courses are best suited to me, to sessions centred around my university preparation strategy and how best I can utilise my time at school. It has become evident to me through these conversations just how experienced our university coordinators are. Outside the classroom, there are many enriching activities in which I can participate, ranging from orchestra rehearsals to TedX meetups. All in all, I have enjoyed and benefitted from life at Harrow thus far, and am excited to see what the future brings!  

Tiffany Lok, HARROW HONG KONG

Transfering to a new school – something one might perceive as a daunting change. However, joining Harrow Hong Kong was nothing of the sort. My housemistress, peers, and teachers were nothing short of welcoming and I and I instantly felt a sense of belonging from the moment I laid my eyes on the grandiose, white pillars of the temple. In the classroom, the teachers’ dedication in ensuring that my classmates and I are able to grasp every concept down to the slightest detail is truly admirable. Teachers pitch discussions to the class and the small class sizes coupled with the teachers’ effort to include everyone makes me confident in speaking my mind and contributing to the topic at hand. The weekly support clinics during lunch hours are also indubitably beneficial to my studies; the personalised help I’ve received from teachers ensures that I have all my study-related queries resolved. Harrow is also keen on the preparation for life after Harrow, providing 2 periods of ‘University Preparation’ each week and hosting a myriad of workshops and talks – all of which have allowed me to gain deeper insights into different universities and their programs offered. Aside from academics,I have already bonded with a group of like-minded and ambitious students who have connected me to various extracurricular programs both inside and outside school. Harrow truly is a vibrant and excellent school community and I look forward to spending the rest of my sixth form journey here.
