The site was formerly the home of Harrow County School for Boys, a grammar school. In 1975, when the London Borough of Harrow adopted a comprehensive system of education, the school became known as Gayton High School: it remained an all-boys school.


Gayton High School was the last school in Harrow to become comprehensive in September 1975. Later, in 1998, the school became coeducational and changed its name to Harrow High School, a specialist sports college.

The school has gained a number of national awards for the quality of its provision, including the Artsmark Gold award (2003), Sportsmark award (2002), Investors in People (1999) and Careers Education and Guidance award (1996).


On 1 August 2011, Harrow High School officially gained academy status.

Independent school

The name "Harrow High School" previously belonged to an independent school which, until its closure in the late 1980s, occupied a site across the road from the current school, on Gayton Road.

Old Gaytonians Association (OGA)

The Old Gaytonians Association gained its first two members in October 1911 but the association was officially established on 27 September 1912.[1]

It was named after the school publication of the same name, this name was chosen because the school site was on 'Gayton Road'.[1]
