What's Not Included


The Shaftesbury Enterprise


Shaftesbury Enterprise encompasses all of Harrow’s philanthropic, charitable, outreach and partnership work. Through this initiative, boys engage purposefully and genuinely with the local community, in the spirit of the 19th-century reformer, philanthropist and Old Harrovian, the 7th Earl of Shaftesbury. This year, for example, over 80 boys have helped in Primary Schools with the reading programme.
