Description: Harrow School is a British public school, located in Harrow on the Hill in North West London. It was founded in 1572 under a Royal Charter granted by Elizabeth I to John Lyon, a local yeoman, for the provision of education to local boys, and currently has approximately 800 pupils spread across 11 houses, all of whom board full-time at a cost of ú23,625 per year. The best-known public example of Harrow tradition is probably the Harrow hat, which resembles a boater in materials and shape, and is worn to all lessons. Notable Old Harrovians include many British Prime Ministers, King Faisal II of Iraq and King Hussein of Jordan. Harrow School has provided an atmospheric backdrop to films such as The Saint, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (The Fourth Form Room was used as the scene of magic lessons at Hogwarts), the BBC's Pride and Prejudice, Goodbye Mr Chips, and most recently, Ladies in Lavender starring Dames Judi Dench and Maggie Smith.
