About Us


By upholding the purpose of “Educational Excellence for Life and Leadership” and the commitment to cultivate international talents for the Greater Bay Area, the Asia International School Limited (AISL) has opened the fourth Harrow-branded School within the Greater Bay Area: The Harrow Hong Kong Children School Shenzhen Qianhai (The School): and the school has officially opened its doors in September 2023.

The School captures the essence of Hong Kong education and combines the 25 years of AISL’s forward-looking educational experience, providing a world-class educational experience that empowers innovation and technology, embedded within the renowned Harrovian holistic journey forged over the past 450 years.   

Along with the AISL’s abundant educational experience and significant resources in the Greater Bay Area, the School implemented a cutting-edge approach that delivers dual academic pathways that include both Hong Kong and International Baccalaureate curricula and aims to become an educational hub focusing on STEAM, innovation, and the nurturing of bi-literate, trilingual (Cantonese, Mandarin, and English) talents of tomorrow.

The School has joined forces with The University of Hong Kong and St. Paul’s Co-Educational College, forming a Guangdong-Hong Kong school alliance to foster the exchange of cultural values and educational ethos within the Greater Bay Area. Students will benefit from a curated curriculum, quality education and a linked pathway to higher education worldwide.


The relationship between Harrow School in the UK (Harrow UK) and AISL Harrow Schools in Asia is a genuine, purposeful collaboration. 

Acting as the representative of Harrow UK, Harrow International Schools Limited (HISL), a wholly-owned non-charitable subsidiary trading company of the Royal Charter Corporation (comprising Harrow School and The John Lyon School), oversees and provides advisory services to all AISL Harrow Schools. 

AISL Harrow Schools are supported and held to account by Harrow UK. Governors from London visit each school twice every year to conduct quality assurance inspections in collaboration with senior AISL Harrow educational specialists. 

This oversight is rigorous – The School is held to the same high standards as those of Harrow UK. This demanding educational standards framework is underpinned by strong support structures across the network of Schools. 


Drawing on the 450 years of extraordinary legacy and academic excellence of Harrow School in the UK, AISL Harrow Schools have been providing world-class education in Asia since the 1990s. The education brands offered by the AISL Harrow Family of Schools include: Harrow International Schools, Harrow LiDe Schools, Harrow Hong Kong Children School and Harrow Little Lions Kindergartens.

Our successful AISL Harrow International Schools in Bangkok, Beijing, Hong Kong and Shanghai are highly regarded, with Shenzhen, Haikou, Zhuhai Hengqin and Appi Japan joining the family, all offering exceptional education to prepare students with diverse background and abilities for a life of learning, leadership, service and personal fulfilment. 


Harrow School in the UK was established in 1572 under a Royal Charter granted by Elizabeth I. Today, Harrow has long been synonymous with English elite education for its outstanding traditions in morality, diverse cultural heritage and elements of elegant etiquette. This unique heritage of English education is demonstrated in every aspect of our provision in the campus of The School. For instance, the implementation of the renowned Harrow’s House System to provide a personalised learning environment for each child.

Harrow has been home to renowned world leaders, such as Sir Winston Churchill, former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, and Jawaharlal Nehru, the first Prime Minister of India and a number of Nobel laureates. It has also educated numerous respected figures from the world of finance, aeronautics and technology, academia and arts and culture, most recently the Sherlock Holmes actor Benedict Cumberbatch. Inheriting Harrow’s elite educational traditions of centuries, the School equips children with a global perspective and prepares them for all-round future development. 

There is only one duty, only one safe course, and that is to try to be right and not to fear to do or say what you believe to be right.
