Harrow House Statement - Coronavirus (Covid-19)

Harrow House International College is closely monitoring the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. We are following the latest updates and advice from the UK Government Agencies and the World Health Organisation and updating our action plan accordingly. As the situation continues to change rapidly, our top priority is always the health, safety and well-being of our students and staff, on and off site. At present, the College is taking appropriate measures to protect the health of the school community and we will continue to keep everyone informed of any changes or additional measures. We understand this is a challenging time for everyone at the moment but want to assure our students, their parents and our partners that health and safety is of utmost importance.

Booking with Confidence

We fully understand that many of our students may want to change their travel plans given the evolving COVID-19 situation. We have put a number of measures in place to support you, so that you can be assured that you can book your course at Harrow House with confidence. We are amending our cancellation policy for all student bookings due to arrive up to the end of June. If you postpone to a later date in the year, there will be no change of booking fee charged. For any cancellations, all fees will be refunded apart from the £80 enrolment fee. The enrolment fee will remain as a credit for you, should you decide to rebook within 12 months of your original start date. At Harrow House we remain confident that the College is a safe environment for us all.
