Our school is small enough to be a very friendly community in which pupils, staff and parents work closely together. Although our academic emphasis is strong with regular success in scholarship and senior school entry examinations, all our children are equally well supported.

Considerable emphasis is placed upon the arts, technology and sport and many of our able pupils have been awarded art, music and sports scholarships by senior schools. Through such activities we aim to give all our boys confidence in themselves and in what they can achieve.

The school belongs to the Anglican Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham and welcomes boys of all religious denominations.

The school is on a compact site in Central Harrow and is very well equipped. Much of the school has been rebuilt in recent years, including a Sports' Hall and new classroom block, a new Junior School building incorporating drama, a new indoor swimming pool and changing rooms, an art centre, a new technology centre and an all-weather sports’ court.

The Parents' Association is very active and organises a full range of social occasions for parents and staff. The school celebrated its centenary on its present site in 1997 and continues to offer a full programme of events for its present and former pupils. A history of the school has been published and an Old Boys' Association set up. Our most distinguished Old Boy is Admiral of the Fleet Lord Fieldhouse of Gosport who was Chief of Defence Staff (1985-1988) and who masterminded the Falklands' Campaign.

Further information about us can be found in the current Independent Schools’ Yearbook, P 1024.

In September 2005 we acquired our own co-ed Nursery by taking over a very local and well-established Pre-school some three minutes’ walk from the main school. This is open both mornings and afternoons and can accommodate a maximum of 20 children per session. The Nursery has its own staff of four. Its fees amount to £18.50 per session.

Following the acquisition of the Nursery the Governors decided to admit girls to our Junior School, with effect from September 2006, the first girls were admitted to our Reception Class (4+). The Junior School thus became co-educational over three years. At the age of seven, the girls will transfer to other local schools, independent and maintained.
