Vision and Spirit

The three age group schools that make up the Harrodian – Pre-Prep, Prep and Senior/Sixth form – are united in sharing a clear and distinctive vision and spirit which is set out below.

  • We value academic excellence highly, as well as hard work and personal achievement.

  • We encourage pupils to think independently and express themselves confidently and creatively in their writing and speech.

  • We employ engaging and dynamic teaching across a wide subject range so that children at every level in the School are inspired to work to the very best of their abilities.
  • We work hard to ensure our pupils become independent learners equipped with the resilience to focus on continuous improvement.
  • Pastoral care policies, carefully tailored to the needs of each age group and caringly implemented by Harrodian staff, are embedded at the heart of our School, underpinning our community.
  • We are committed to ‘educating the whole child’ academically, physically,  socially, culturally and morally, in and beyond the classroom.
  • We help Harrodians to grow into thoughtful, healthy and considerate young people who are as confident and well-rounded as they are well-informed.  

“[Harrodian] pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is outstanding. Pupils of all ages enjoy an outstanding range of extra-curricular activities… [and] welcome the opportunities they have to contribute to School life.”

Ofsted Report, 2012


“[The Harrodian School]…a dream – a co-ed school run according to civilised values in a civilised environment to produce relaxed, happy children.”
