very good

Harrow House is the best place in the world! I really liked this school: great food, exciting sports and activities, great English lessons. I liked my super soft bed! When you have free time you can play billiards, table tennis, Vi-games ... I liked the disco and karaoke. I found a lot of good friends and not only among Russian children Very friendly, good staff, very good teachers, especially Greg! He's the best, and funny! I liked it very much and I want to go there again !!!! H.H. - I love you.

Hello))) My mom first decided to send me to the UK to improve my English (I am 13). When I arrived I thought Hmmmmm... not sure it is a good idea.... But then I was very surprised. The students live on the 1st and 2nd floor and the Staff and Activity leaders live in the same building but on the 3rd floor. A group leader is a person who is responsible for the group. Well, so the STAFF is great they can talk and laugh with you. have fun, and every weekend we had a disco. Personally, I just liked it very much.
