Arts and Culture

Through the arts, students find their own voice, the confidence to express their individual creativity, and a connection with the most enduring and significant elements of our cultural past.

Whether it’s learning a musical instrument, playing in ensembles, singing in choirs or in Houses, performing in plays or discovering beauty in fine art, sculpture and ceramics, there is plenty of opportunity for creative expression at Harrow New York. Indeed, our philosophy behind the arts is for all to appreciate, most to participate and the very best to excel.

We believe that engagement with the creative and performing arts not only sets our students up for a lifetime of personal enrichment and enjoyment, but also teaches them to be more self-disciplined, attentive and better at planning and organising their busy lives.

Students who participate in them also find that this involvement has a broader, more beneficial effect on their overall academic performance. By encouraging students to develop artistically, we see them finding their own voice and the confidence to express their individual creativity, regardless of innate talent.
