Getting to the Exam Centre

From South-West London

Take the A312 to Harrow, then follow signs to Harrow on the Hill.

From West and South of London

Take the M25 to J16 (M40/A40 EAST) up to the A4127 and then the A4005 to Harrow on the Hill.

From the North

Exit the M1 at J5, onto the A41. Take the A411 next, followed by the A409. Then follow signs first for Harrow and, afterwards, for Harrow on the Hill.

From the East

Exit the M25 at J23, following the A1 right onto A411, before joining the A409. Follow signs to Bushey, then Harrow and then Harrow on the Hill.

From Heathrow Airport

Exit the M4 at J3, take the A312 to Harrow and then follow signs to Harrow on the Hill.


Plenty of free parking onsite, however, the School car park is at the bottom of Garlands Lane (postcode: HA1 3GF) from where there is a steep walk back up to the High Street. Please allow ten minutes to reach your destination.


The nearest London Underground and mainline train station is Harrow on the Hill (Metropolitan and Chiltern Lines). If you wish to walk from the station (ten minutes uphill), take the left exit after passing through the ticket barriers. At the end of the service road, turn left again, then take the first right up Grove Hill to reach the School. If you wish to take a taxi, take the right exit after passing through the ticket barriers, where you will find a taxi rank. Please stress that you need Harrow School, on top of the Hill, and not Harrow High School.

South Harrow (Piccadilly Line) is 20 minutes’ walk from the School: turn right after passing through the ticket barriers, continue across the Waitrose roundabout, and then up Middle Road, Crown Street and West Street until you meet the High Street. Taxis are rarely waiting at South Harrow, so it is best to pre-order one if required.


The 258 from Watford Junction to South Harrow and the H17 from Harrow Bus Station to Wembley Central both stop at Harrow School about every 15-20 minutes.
