Harrow Shenzhen Qianhai offers Scholarships to the brightest and most gifted applicants to the school, in order to support, nurture and challenge their talents, their academic prowess and their dedication.

We believe that Scholars will be role models and ambassadors that inspire other students and in so doing, will enhance and enrich the education and development of the school community.

A scholarship is a financial award for excellence and its value may be up to 100% of the School tuition fee. In addition, honorary scholarships with no fee reduction may also sometimes be awarded to students in recognition of their achievements in the school.

A Scholar at Harrow Shenzhen is likely to have natural ability and talent but, more importantly, he or she has a genuine love of learning and commitment to their subject. They regularly go ‘above and beyond’ in their work. You can see their passion and enthusiasm for learning and improving through the challenges they take on, both in terms of the Super Curriculum and the Leadership and Service activities they take part in. They might also have career aspirations in their specialism.

The award of Scholarships reflects our commitment to academic excellence and personal development, as well as the importance of leadership and being part of a community in which everyone thrives. The award is much more than a financial remission. It is a personalised programme that works with the most able and talented students to better not only themselves but also those around them.

The Scholarship Programme

Harrow Shenzhen operates a Scholarship Programme which provides targeted, enhanced curricular provision for those students that are, based on current academic performance, on a trajectory to attend one of the world’s highly selective universities. The School is committed to ensuring that all students, including our most able, are challenged and stretched to fulfil their potential within and beyond the classroom.

Identified students will be provided with enhanced opportunities to demonstrate their academic ability and test their enquiring minds. A more detailed breakdown by phase can be found in our Scholarship Provision Programme. The programme will be available to all students but will be a requirement for Scholars.
