Who we are

Harrow School Short Courses, formerly BABSSCo, was founded in 1995. Since then, we have welcomed over 14,000 students from more than 60 countries on to our English language courses for girls and boys aged 8 to 17.

Our courses offer a full programme of English tuition and junior teamwork and leadership training as well as social activities, sports and cultural excursions, so that you practise your English throughout your time here. When you come to our schools you get a taste of life in the UK, as well as the chance to improve your speaking and understanding of everyday English.

Students can choose from courses at three of the best UK boarding schools. These have been carefully selected because they are landmark schools of the British education system. Each school has excellent facilities in a unique historical setting and is situated in a safe and secure environment.

Harrow School Short Courses has a high ratio of staff to students, so there are plenty of friends to look after you, making sure you are safe and happy while you learn English and have a great holiday. Many of our summer school team are former Harrow School Short Courses students, alumni from our host schools and members of the local community.
