Airport Transfers

Airport transfers (as indicated below) are included in the course fee and valid for the arrival and departure day of the course that the student has registered for.

Included in fees

Airport transfers are included in all Harrow School Short Courses fees and will be organised for all students who request it, provided they are in possession of a valid return ticket completed with a time and date. It is not possible to join with an undated ticket and Harrow School Short Courses is not responsible for booking or providing return tickets.

Our uniformed staff will meet students arriving at a UK airport on a flight and accompany them to their destination school. We will collect any children travelling as Unaccompanied Minors directly from their airline representatives. An Unaccompanied Minor is where you have paid the airline to escort your child from their home country to the United Kingdom.
