A History of Harrow School 1324–1991

Christopher Tyerman


Harrow School is the second most famous school in the English-speaking world. This book provides a modern history of the school, and, supported by a full academic apparatus of source references, it confronts the school's failings as well as its successes; its financial, educational, and sexual scandals as openly as its well-publicized eminence as the school of Byron, Churchill (and six other British prime ministers), and Nehru.

Keywords: Harrow School, financial scandals, educational scandals, sexual scandals, Byron, Churchill, Nehru
