Haileybury Almaty

Haileybury Almaty opened in 2008, in association with Haileybury in the United Kingdom. This not-for-profit educational project was financed by the group of Kazakhstani businessmen. Haileybury Almaty offers a broad, liberal education in the best traditions of British independent schooling. Pupils are prepared for Advanced Levels (‘A levels’), which enable them to apply to and enter the best universities both abroad and in Kazakhstan.

At Haileybury Almaty, we encourage academic excellence and promote intellectual curiosity. We believe in the merits of an all-round education and as such all strands of our co-curricular provision is strong. Underpinning every child’s education at Haileybury is outstanding pastoral care.

Our pupils learn the value of community and service. They experience leadership and they learn to work as part of a team. A Haileybury education is open-minded and forward-looking but it also draws on our rich heritage. It is an education that provides our pupils with a moral compass; it prepares them for the very best universities and for life as successful global citizens.

Testimonial

British independent school in Haileybury Almaty

Yelena Sokolova

We have been a part of Haileybury almost since its foundation, which is about 8 years. When we look for a school for our son we visited many good schools in Almaty together with our son. The library of Haileybury impressed him so deeply that he told us: “I will study in this school”. That was so touching, that we couldn’t search for any longer. However, the following two years were decisive, as we learned more about UK education system, attended all school events and every day made sure that it was a right decision.
