The Head Master Thanks Donors

“The positive impact that can be made by investment and donations was made very clear when Harrovians returned for the start of this term.  In West Acre and The Head Master’s in particular everyone was delighted by the refurbishment that took place over the summer.  The boys’ common rooms which happen to be underneath my accommodation in No 1 High Street have been transformed into the Hill’s finest, and have given The Head Master’s boarding house a great morale boost.  In addition, our excellent Physics Department now has its own IT suite and a ‘Harkness room’ for seminar style teaching, not to mention a fully equipped observatory which was installed during the past year. 

These kinds of investments make a huge difference and greatly improve the educational experience of the boys.  And of course, apart from buildings and facilities, our bursary funding has been enhanced by generous donations in recent months.  With around 25% of our boys receiving financial support at various levels, this enables many to come to Harrow who would otherwise find it impossible.”  

Jim Hawkins, Head Master

Why give to Harrow?

Although rich and varied in many ways, Harrow’s general reserves are minimal and school fees do not generate a surplus for bursaries or building new facilities. Today, the School still needs your support.

Annual results 2013-2014
