Learning is at the centre of the Haileybury Almaty community. In a selective school, personalized learning programmes are critical to supporting pupils at all academic levels.
Highly qualified teachers give extensive support in the relaxed and open environment of the school. Small class sizes and a broad and balanced curriculum ensures that each year group is taught at an appropriate pace with challenge for each pupil. Pupils are encouraged to develop intellectual curiosity, to question received wisdoms, to think deeply and engage with serious subjects across a range of academic disciplines, and to articulate their own thoughts.
A programme of academic enrichment challenges our most able academic pupils including mentoring programmes, subject competitions, academic societies, lectures and elective research initiatives. Our Language and Learning Faculty helps pupils to develop learning strategies that will enable them to achieve their full potential even when English is not a pupil’s first language
We also ensure that we are at the forefront of pedagogical developments, embracing the best from British and the International education.
Our pupils have access to learning resources both within and beyond the classroom, through the acquisition of technology rich and collaborative learning using mobile learning devices. This increasing accessibility of information means that educators have a more important role than ever teaching the traditional skills of evaluation, discernment and analysis.
Our expectations are to achieve the best possible grades at iGCSE and A level and pave the way for successful applications to university, however, above all we develop a thirst for understanding and a rigorous approach to lifelong learning.
