What Makes Harrow International Special? Harrow International has been in Hong Kong since 2012 but its origins are steeped in royalty, history, and a rich heritage. The original school in the UK was founded in February 1572, under a Royal Charter granted by Queen Elizabeth I to a wealthy local farmer named John Lyon.
The first Harrow School in Asia, founded in 1998, was Harrow Bangkok, followed by Harrow Beijing in 2005, Harrow Hong Kong in 2012 and then Harrow Shanghai in 2016.
