Harrow College is the largest college in the London Borough of Harrow. It opened in 1999 following a merger of two former local colleges, Greenhill College (located in the centre of Harrow Town) and Weald College neighbouring town Wealdstone.
More than 2,000 full-time and 7,000 part-time, students join Harrow College for sixth form and adult courses.

Teaching takes place at the Harrow on the Hill campus on Lowlands Road and at the Harrow Weald campus in Harrow Weald as well as two smaller, dedicated construction-focused units; Whitefriars Centre and Harrow Skills Centre.
In 2015, the College opened two new buildings: The Enterprise Centre at the Harrow on the Hill campus and Spring House for supported learning at the Harrow Weald campus.
Harrow College has been awarded a Centre of Excellence for the Hearing Impaired, which is the only centre of its kind in North West London. The college is also a member of the Westminster Centre of Excellence in Teacher Training (CETT).
Harrow College provides academic and vocational courses for young people and a range of professional and non-professional programmes for adult students. The college is highly regarded for its ESOL (English for speakers of other languages) and EFL (English as a Foreign Language) courses. The EFL programmes are accredited by the British Council. The Learning Links programme has set a standard in the community for providing courses for students with learning disabilities and difficulties.
