About KKCL Harrow School
This year KKCL have taken up residence in one of the most prestigious boarding schools in Britain – Harrow School. Established in 1572 and steeped in history, Harrow School has been synonymous with wealth & privilege for centuries. Our students will follow in the footsteps of the giants of old, to live like Harrovians just as Lord Byron and Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill once did.
We will take the students on a journey of discovery, including the historical Speech Room which hosted kings, queens and prime ministers, and the historical heart of the School – the 4th Form Room – where Harrow School really began over 400 years ago. You will have unique opportunities to explore the Harrow School buildings during your stay, and see where many famous movies have been filmed, including the Harry Potter series.
KKCL Harrow School Residential Programme
A typical week at KKCL Harrow School Boarding House
Our Harrow School boarding houses are at the heart of the KKCL Harrow School experience. It is here where you will make new friends, sleep surrounded by the history and successes of generations of Harrovians before you, have the welcome and support of our House Master and House Parent, and settle into your new boarding school life!
During your induction, you are put into a ‘house’ to help you mix and make friends from all over the world - you will compete against each other to see which ‘house’ is the best. This is how many British boarding schools are organised to create a dynamic and fun school environment.
The boarding houses and classrooms are all located in the exclusive suburb of Harrow-on-the-hill, all of the world-class facilities that Harrow School has to offers are located in close proximity. Our sports activities range from swimming in an indoor pool to rock climbing and Harrow Fives inter-house competitions. A masterclass is also arranged at the Fourth Form Room where Harry Potter scenes were filmed, during which you will compete in your ‘houses’ to practise your English and learn about the fascinating history of Harrow School at the same time!
Everyday school starts with the House Master’s ‘Bill Call’ - Harrow terminology for roll call, then breakfast is served in the Harrow School Dining Hall where freshly prepared English-style breakfast is served with a range of hot drinks. You will then head off to either a full day of lessons or an exciting excursion.
After dinner, you will take part in fun evening activities, including British Culture Night, the KKCL Disco and BBQ party. At the end of a 2-week programme, the Graduation Ceremony is held in the Speech Room, where Winston Churchill made his famous speech. This is followed by a formal supper or BBQ party to celebrate your graduation!
