Each year, the School admits about 160 boys into Year 9, in the September following their 13th birthday, and up to 20 boys, normally aged 16, into the Sixth Form (Year 12).
In line with our admissions policy, which is referenced in our terms and conditions, we welcome applications from boys who:
- will thrive in a full-boarding environment and make the most of the opportunities offered at Harrow;
- will make a positive contribution to the life of the School, both inside and outside the classroom;
- are talented in their academic studies, or in sport, the arts or in other areas; and
- have a good behavioural record and the potential to show leadership.
In addition to these attributes, suitable Sixth Form applicants are likely to be predicted at least seven or eight passes at GCSE (or equivalent) at grade 7/8/9 (A/A*).
