Welcome to Harrow College
Welcome to the Harrow College website. I am pleased that you want to find out more about Harrow College and what we can offer you.
We are proud to have a long and well established history of providing a wide range of choice for our prospective and continuing learners and we are continually seeking to develop and introduce new learning opportunities such as our expanded higher education, apprenticeship offer and Career Colleges.
We are committed to providing a high quality student experience and at our recent Ofsted inspection that took place in April 2013 we were judged by inspectors as being "Good". Inspectors said that "the welcoming and inclusive atmosphere at Harrow College helps all learners reach their full potential". Indeed, the College is committed to becoming an outstanding educational institution that nurtures talent, develop skills and raises expectations to meet individual and employer needs.
Our courses and programmes are offered on two large campuses located at Harrow on the Hill and Harrow Weald with provision in construction and engineering offered at the Harrow Skills Centre and the Whitefriars Training Centre. We have a wide range of specialist facilities and resources to support our students including our recently remodelled science laboratories at both campuses and our Enterprise Centre at our Harrow on the Hill campus and Centre for students with learning difficulties and disabilities at Harrow Weald, both opened in September 2015.
I hope that you find this website useful and we have provided you with everything that you need. However, please do contact us on 020 89096000 if you would like any further information.
We look forward to seeing you at Harrow College soon.
PRINCIPAL & CHIEF EXECUTIVE
Harrow College was created in August 1999 as a result of the merger of two of the biggest colleges in the borough of Harrow: Greenhill College and Weald College. The University of Westminster and Middlesex University, are associated with the college. The College is committed to widening the range of students who come to the college and being an integral part of the local community. Harrow College is committed to equality of opportunity and supporting students with learning difficulties and disabilities. Services to students include: Learning Support, Confidential Counselling, Careers and Further Study Advice, Communication Support.
The Enterprise Centre is one of two new builds at Harrow College. Classrooms, flexible work spaces and an employability hub is all part of the new Enterprise Centre.
A new centre at Harrow College for learners with learning difficulties and/or disabilities (LLDD) is now open. Students were introduced to the new facility in September 2015 and have since familiarised themselves with the new building.
Media Production and Editing Facilities:
We have some of the best facilities and staff in London with studios that are very well equipped and lecturers that have vast experience from various areas of the creative industry.
At the Harrow on the Hill campus, students have access to Harrow College's sport centre, recently relocated from the Harrow Weald campus.
Science is a very popular area of study and our students have high achievement rates. They benefit from fully equipped science labs at the Harrow on the Hill and Harrow Weald campuses for Biology, Chemistry and Physics courses.
There is a range of hot and cold food served at the cafés at our Harrow-on-the-Hill and Harrow Weald campuses.
At Image, our Harrow College based hair and beauty salon, you'll enjoy a relaxing and professional experience without the guilt of a costly price tag.

IT and Computer provision:
The College has around 1,300 networked PCs across all campuses. The Learning Centre at Harrow-on-the-Hill has 80 networked PCs and the Learning Centre at Harrow Weald has over 90 available to all students.
