Harrow School was founded in 1572 under a Royal Charter granted by Queen Elizabeth I to a local landowner, John Lyon. It soon became one of the greatest schools in the country, attracting pupils from all over the world. Famous Old Harrovians include Winston Churchill and six other British Prime Ministers, the first Prime Minister of India, Pandit Nehru, as well as poets and writers as diverse as Byron, Sheridan and Trollope. 

With an exceptional school comes exceptional facilities. The opportunity for the public to benefit from these spaces is the responsibility of HSEL, the commercial trading arm of Harrow School. We offer a variety of services to the School and the wider community that covers five key areas: Education, Events, Sports, Locations and the Harrow Shop.
