Many nationally and internationally influential leaders have been educated at Harrow. They have often been pragmatic, determined and independent thinkers; people for their time. Our times appear ever more challenging, so require ever more courageous and able leaders.Leadership for a better world is defined by six leadership attributes that our students increasingly demonstrate during their time at Harrow Bangkok. ·Contributing positively to the community ·Applying knowledge with compassion ·Solving problems collaboratively ·Solving problems creatively ·Making just choices ·Facing challenges with determination These values are embedded into all aspects of our school life, including the kinds of learning experiences teachers prepare for students in lessons, co-curricular (Leadership in Action) opportunities, our House System and the students’ experiences in boarding.In providing an integrated learning experience, designed to nurture our students' six leadership attributes, whether in an explicit and obvious manner or quietly behind the scenes, we support our students' ability to influence their future world for the better. In so doing, they follow in the footsteps of great past Harrovians who, through determination, respect and adaptability, overcame challenging circumstances and gave us a better world.The Leadership in Action programmes immerses students in extra-curricular activities structured according to six themes, in order to develop the six attributes Leadership for a better world in practical ways:  Involving students in service encourages them to transform the natural tendency of selfishness towards serving others.  The human trait of possessiveness and security can be offset by sharing when we involve students in charitable activity.  Co-operation and collaboration (teamwork) can emerge when students work together towards common objectives rather than the more natural approach of trying to impose one’s own view.  When students express themselves creatively, they can motivate and inspire others.  When students give attention to issues at hand with the needs of others as the objective, they become Servant Leaders.  Placing students in challenging situations, outside their comfort zone, develops the determination to see through to completion a strategy designed to create an outcome that improves the situation for others.Our Leadership in Action programmes, both inside and outside of the classroom, allow our students opportunities to move out of their comfort zones and undertake new experiences. Whether it be building a raft and spending 24 hours on the Harrow lake, trying to earn the minimum wage by cutting sugar cane, acquiring new skills such as First Aid or Lifeguarding or conquering a 40 metre Tyrolean rope climb, pupils are increasingly able to develop and demonstrate the six leadership attributes:  Contributing positively to the community  Applying knowledge with compassion  Solving problems collaboratively  Solving problems creatively  Making just choices  Facing challenges with determinationA Harrow Bangkok education is meaningful and holistic; and for life. The current adult generation has both inherited and contributed to numerous regional and global challenges. We now require courageous and resilient problem solvers to lead us to a better world.

Learning principles

A good education is a blessing that opens up the world to a young person. The Head Master believes teachers have an ethical obligation to ensure that all children are excited by learning and achieve their potential as a result, whatever that potential might be, developing attributes that will allow them to positively contribute to those around them in their adult lives.

Student Support

Support for special learning needs

Yes

Learning support teachers assess the student's needs and create a plan addressing the specific challenges. This is all done in close collaboration with class teachers and parents. Regular meetings are scheduled with parents to discuss the progress of the student. If it is felt that the school is not the best-placed option to provide for the particular student, the school will support the parents in finding an alternative placement for their child. When deemed necessary, a specialist assessment may be recommended by an outside consultant, for example, by an educational psychologist or occupational therapist. Options for these types of assessments are provided by the learning support coordinators. The school has a dedicated speech and language teacher who works across the school to help students overcome speech issues. After referral by a teacher or parent, students are assessed and supported with tailored sessions. Both speech (e.g. articulation) and language (e.g. vocabulary, grammar, communications skills) issues are addressed and resolved.

Support for gifted and talented students
