Nehru House is named after the Old Harrovian and first prime minister of India, Jawaharlal Nehru.

Nehru was a champion of the underprivileged and noted for his qualities of fairness, liberalism and resoluteness; and it is these qualities that we aim to instil in our Nehru students. Students are encouraged to take part in the multitude of House and Community events that take place over the course of each year and, whilst doing so, support one another in their endeavours, regardless of the outcome; humility in victory and dignity in defeat.

Life is not a spectator sport, you cannot sit on the side-lines watching it go by. You need to get involved and give everything your best and it is this philosophy that we seek to inspire in all the students in Nehru.

Jeremy Southgate

Head of Nehru House

 What really matters is that we try hard and do our best and we stand as one of the bravest houses. David, Year 6.

Each time there is a House competition we think it through and organise ourselves. No one complains  and that shows how much team spirit Nehru has and how we always try our best. Prim, Year 9

“The policy of being too cautious is the greatest risk of all.”

Jawaharlal Nehru
