Harrow International School has announced it will be partially lifting its individual capital levy requirement.
According to the board of governors, the levy requirement will be removed as an admission requirement into Early Years at the Gold Coast-based school as of this month. A capital levy at Harrow is currently valued at $5 million.
“The school has taken this measure as part of a strategic review,” announced the school in a statement released onto the Harrow website today.
Having an ICC will, however, continue to entitle pupils to exemption from annual capital levies and offer candidates priority in gaining a school place subject to meeting the admissions criteria.
The board has confirmed there are no plans to increase the annual capital levies for the foreseeable future. Capital levies are used towards maintenance programmes and investment in new facilities at the school.
