Community Languages at Harrow High School

  • Harrow High celebrates the multi-culturism of our school and of the local, national and international community of which the school is a part. We respect and value different cultures and beliefs and are enriched by the diversity of the many languages that our community speaks. We seek to reflect and promote this global dimension in the attitudes and values of our learners, the ethos of the school, and in the curriculum opportunities that we offer our learners.


  • To this end, we provide an added opportunity for our learners to sit a GCSE in their native language if available. In addition to the taught languages of Spanish and Italian, learners are able to be entered for a GCSE in German, Greek, Japanese, Arabic, French, Russian, Mandarin, Urdu, Biblical Hebrew, Persian, Turkish, Portuguese, Gujarati, Bengali, Polish and Latin. This is dependent on the availability of the examination and suitable examiners.
