Harrow International Schools employ the best teachers from a range of educational sectors and countries. Familiarity with independent boarding school culture and the National Curriculum for England are important criteria for appointing teachers and so the schools naturally employ a large number of British teachers. However, the best teachers are the best, irrespective of the curriculum with which they are most familiar. As such, teachers from other Commonwealth countries and western education systems are employed, thereby providing an international flavour. In addition, a number of local teachers join the staff to teach the local language and culture.

As well as appropriate degrees and teaching qualifications from reputable universities, Harrow International Management Services looks for teachers who bring:

  • teaching experience in top-end schools;
  • high levels of energy and expertise in extra-curricular pursuits, particularly sports, the performing arts, community service and outdoor education;
  • pastoral care experience particularly in boarding school environments; and
  • the ability to teach and foster our Leadership Attributes.
