Set on a 25-acre riverside estate in Barnes, South West London, Harrodian is a high-achieving independent school for boys and girls aged between 4 and 18 years old. Its beautiful site on the south bank of the Thames includes departments tailored to meet the needs of three age groups – Pre-Prep, Prep and Senior/Sixth – that make up a single, close-knit whole. Combining strong academic performance with warmth, friendship and community, Harrodian offers a special environment in which children can develop, grow and flourish.
Harrodian offers its staff a welcoming and exceptional school environment where classes are small and standards and expectations are high. We place a strong emphasis on the ability to convey enthusiasm and enjoyment of the subject to students across the ability range. A sense of fun, a readiness to respond to students’ individual needs and an open approach to teaching are qualities that we value highly. A teacher’s willingness to assist with a large range of extra-curricular activities is important in this dynamic and vibrant school. Teaching staff are expected to offer support to the learning, pastoral and co-curricular needs of our pupils to ensure the all-round quality of education offered at Harrodian.
