Co-Curricular Activities

Children benefit socially, cognitively and psychologically from appropriate experiences in specialised learning; whether this is through sport, art, music or drama. The opportunity to refine and hone a skill is not just emotionally rewarding but also establishes strong ‘mindsets’ of self-discipline, perseverance and achievement.

In AISL Harrow Kindergartens and Early Years Centres, we off a range of these opportunities for children to participate in and extend their life experience while learning a skill. These will be led by specialist experts who will be able to work professionally with your child to teach them the necessary techniques and support them in developing their talent to the best of their ability.

Our extensive Co-Curricular Activities Programmes are not ‘extra’ as they are an expectation as we believe vital learning takes place outside of the classroom. These programmes broaden horizons, instil a sense of adventure, and foster leadership attributes. Academic learning is therefore supported by an extensive range of activities, societies, and events.

Sport has always been important for Harrow. Our sports programme ensures all students participate in sport in clubs, House events and academies. Many students will specialise in one or more sports and this is encouraged and supported by specialist coaching in our clubs and academies. By playing competitively, and representing the house or school across a range of sports, students learn high level skills and experience lessons for life.

Challenging students to step outside their comfort zones, perhaps performing in front of an audience or taking part in a debate, our AISL Talents Programme is vital to the development of the Harrow School’s Values of honour, fellowship, courage and humility. Through the creative arts (music, drama and visual art), students build self-confidence and grow as individuals. AISL Music Festival, a signature event of AISL Talents programme, will foster young people through engagement with high-quality music and give learning opportunities to young musicians.
