Amity Education Group is partnering with independent Harrow School to establish Harrow International Schools in India and New York.
Harrow School is one of the world’s most famous independent schools. Founded in 1572 under a Royal Charter by Queen Elizabeth I, it is located on a 324-acre estate in London and boasts numerous famous alumni including Winston Churchill, Jawaharlal Nehru and Lord Byron.
Amity will establish four new Harrow International Schools in India and one in New York, with the first two new schools opening in September 2023. Harrow International School Bengaluru and Harrow International School New York will be launched as residential and day boarding co-educational schools.
Harrow International School Bengaluru will be situated in a purpose-built 60-acre campus providing an education based on the National Curriculum for England to pupils aged 11 to 18, preparing them for Cambridge International IGCSEs and the International Baccalaureate Diploma.
Harrow New York will be located in a 170-acre campus in Oakdale on Long Island and will develop a bespoke curriculum for its students.
John Batting, Harrow School’s chairman of governors said: “We are delighted to be expanding the opportunity for students to access a Harrow education in two new geographies with Amity, a partner with global educational expertise. Our joint aspiration is to establish world-class schools that offer a premium education based on the Harrow values of courage, honour, humility and fellowship.”
Amity’s president Dr Atul Chauhan added: “This historic partnership with Harrow School will bring together Amity’s uncompromising quest for quality education with Harrow’s 450-year-old tradition of outstanding education to create extraordinary schools in India and New York. We look forward to creating history together.”
Dr Aseem Chauhan, Amity’s chancellor, added: “For Amity, blending modernity with tradition is a fundamental aspect of pedagogy. Our focus is on establishing a global outlook in our students, through an innovative curriculum that promotes their overall development and inculcates a deep respect for values, which this partnership will take forward.”
