Red Balloon - NW London is a warm and welcoming educational community in Harrow that caters for students who travel from across North West London.
The Centre covers core subjects in the National Curriculum as well as the humanities, art, drama, modern foreign languages, PSHE, and home cooking (leading to a BTec). Information on students' results can be obtained upon request. We hope to offer a performing arts BTec in the near future. We have access to Harrow School’s excellent sports facilities.
All our students have either music or art therapy to support their emotional well-being, and we offer a range of extra-curricular activities, such as visits to museums and galleries, and an annual residential outdoor activities trip to the Lake District.
We have a strong community of staff and students where we encourage mutual respect, diversity, support and sharing. Vegetarian food is home-cooked at the Centre, staff and students sitting together at lunchtime. We have a garden where students may grow vegetables, play table-tennis or simply relax when the weather permits.
Red Balloon – NW London was last inspected in November 2012. The report can be found at:
Trustees review policies annually - the chair of trustees signs a policy list (held in the centre office) to indicate that this has been carried out. Names of 'responsible staff' (eg examinations officer, fire officer) as required within policies are also available from the centre office.
If we receive a referral for a student with English as a second language, we will seek support from the pertinent Local Authority.
