Houses at Haileybury Almaty

Haileybury Almaty has a House system based on that at Haileybury in the UK. Every pupil and academic staff member in the School belongs to one of four Houses:

  • Attlee
  • Bartle Frere
  • Edmonstone
  • Kipling

Through House, pupils have the opportunity to develop in a happy and positive learning environment where everyone is valued as part of a community that promotes resilience, resourcefulness and reliability.

Haileybury Almaty has a House system based on that at Haileybury in the UK. Every pupil and academic staff member in the school belongs to one of four House teams. 

In the Lower School

For the day-to-day management of pupils in the Lower School the class teacher is the first port of call, but more serious incidents will be reported to the appropriate Housemaster. All incidents and concerns will be recorded on iSAMS so that each day the Housemaster can review and monitor the progress and wellbeing of the pupils within their House.
Upon enrolment, every pupil is assigned to one House within the School and they remain a member of the same House for the duration of their time in the School.

Responsibility for overall coordination of House events and activities lies with the Senior Housemaster in the Lower School. Under their direction, the Housemasters implement a range of house events and activities across the year to the personal development of the pupils. These include, amongst other things

  • Sports Day
  • Charity Events
  • Dance Competition
  • Music Competition
  • Football Competitions

Points are awarded to the houses for winning competitions. At the end of each academic year, the number of points accumulated by each house is totalled and the ‘winning’ house recognised. 

Each house also has House Captains and pupils with leadership responsibilities. These pupils assist the Housemaster with the coordination and organisation of pupil participation in House events.

 

In the Upper School

Each pupil in the Upper School will represent his or her House via vertical House Tutor Groups that inherently facilitate collaboration. House Tutors are responsible for ensuring that pupils receive an excellent standard of care, guidance and support, and are best placed to be the first point of contact between School and home. House Tutors will deliver an informative and effective programme of activities each morning as well as weekly Personal Development sessions that promote independence of thought, creativity and respect for others. The House Tutor is the first port of call but more serious incidents will be reported to the Housemaster as appropriate.

House events and activities are organised by the Housemasters:

  • Sports Competitions and Sports Day
  • Charity Events
  • Dance Competition
  • Music Competition

Points are awarded to each House for winning competitions and, at the end of each academic year, the number of points accumulated is calculated and the House recognised. Each house also has House Captains and pupils with leadership responsibilities. These pupils assist the Housemaster with the coordination and organisation of pupil participation during House events.
