Curriculum Overview
 Print    [+]  [-]

Our core purpose is to ensure our students acquire the skills and attributes to become leaders for a better world. 

The current generation of students has particular needs as learners in the twenty first century, and will face various new challenges throughout their lives. The University of Cambridge defines the current generation of students as, ‘multi-taskers, people who text as much as they talk, digitally literate, personalised learners, requiring social orientation, needing immediate feedback and having short attention spans’. These factors, coupled with the extreme pace of change in this digital age and the wider needs of society in the Twenty First Century, influence the curriculum we provide.
 
Harrow Bangkok provides four strands of education;
 
  • Attainment at a high level in the chosen academic programmes
  • An awareness of one's own strengths and weaknesses with humility. This is gained by active participation in Leadership in Action (extra curricular) opportunities as well as the academic programmes
  • An ability to relate to others with tolerance, respect and consideration whatever their beliefs and attitudes. This is gained through Leadership in Action opportunities, House contributions and Boarding
     
  • Adopting an outstanding set of values: understanding right from wrong, handling success and disappointment and accepting that one's actions have consequences
