Our School was founded in 1998 by Mr Stuart Morris, formerly Headmaster of Papplewick Preparatory School in Ascot and then Kolej Tuanku Ja'afar in Malaysia. Thailand was thought to be an appropriate location for the first Harrow International School owing to the strong links between Harrow-on-the-Hill School in London and Thailand’s royal family, with 23 princes of the royal household having been educated at Harrow from the late Nineteenth Century to the late Twentieth Century including His Majesty the King’s father, Prince Mahidol. Under Mr Morris’ leadership the school was established in rented premises in downtown Bangkok and grew to 800 students in four years.

Mr Morris was succeeded by Dr Mark Hensman, formerly Head Master of Napier Boys’ High School, New Zealand. He was Head Master of Harrow Bangkok for seven years, during which time the School moved site to its current 35-acre purpose-built green site in Don Muang. In this phase of development  a wide reaching 'House system' was introduced, boarding provision was developed, our extra-curricular activities were expanded as the Harrow 'Leadership in Action' Programme and a discrete Preparatory School (Years 6-8) was put in place. The School continued to thrive, growing to 1,200 students.

Dr Hensman left his post as Head Master of Harrow Bangkok to become the Director of Schools for Harrow International and oversee the founding of new Harrow International schools in Beijing and Hong Kong. He was succeeded by Mr Kevin Riley, formerly Headmaster of the John Lyon School, the Harrow Foundation’s day school at Harrow-on-the-Hill, London.

Mr Riley returned to the UK to take up the Headship of Bradford Grammar School and was succeeded in Summer 2012 by our current Head Master, Mr Michael Farley, formerly Head Master of the British School in Tokyo. These are exciting times at Harrow Bangkok. After ten years on its current site the School has grown to almost 1,400 students, is producing outstanding academic results and is successfully placing its graduates in the best universities around the world. Many aspects of our innovative educational programmes are unique in their challenges of and support to the students and our community is vibrant and happy.

We are now embarking on an extensive site re-development programme that will see the commissioning of new facilities and expansion and upgrade of many others. This will include an enlarged Sixth Form Centre, Library and Early Years Centre, more boarding houses and improved creative arts and sports facilities.
