The purpose of our Leadership & Service Programme at Harrow Chongqing, is to encourage our students to broaden their horizons, develop a breadth of practical, interpersonal and transferrable skills and thereby enrich their curriculum. In such a way, our aim is to help them acquire and hone the leadership attributes required to traverse our ever-changing and complex world with confidence and resilience. The Leadership and Service Curriculum is designed to provide opportunities for students to gain a breadth of experiences, skills and attributes which can be monitored and celebrated.
Leadership & Service at Harrow Chongqing includes:
- Leadership & Service during after school, co-curricular activities
- Expeditions and Trips
- Community and Service projects
- The International (Duke of Edinburgh’s) Award
- Academic Enrichment and the Super-Curriculum
- House Competitions and events
- Student Leadership roles (the Student Council and House Leaders)
The Leadership & Service Curriculum provides a means to encourage participation and traces this participation according to the six leadership attributes (iRules) of all Harrow Schools.

1 Spark/ 2 Spark/ 3 Spark
Students must complete at least one activity per iRule/leadership attribute box (all six attributes) for 1 Spark, two activities per box for 2 Sparks, and 3 activities per box for 3 Sparks. Students have their own record sheet to track their progress.
1 Star, 2 Star, 3 Star
Students must complete at least one activity per Leadership attribute box (all six attributes) for 1 Star, two activities per box for 2 Stars, and 3 activities per box for 3 Stars.
