After School activities are a vital and integral part of life at Haileybury Almaty and take place after school for all year groups, usually at the following times.    

KS1:  2.45-3.30pm
KS2: 3.15-4.00pm
Secondary: 4.15-5.00pm

The Co-Curricular Activities (CCAs) vary according to the time of year, age group, staff and pupil interest.

Primary CCA

Primary CCAs cover academic, sports and recreational activities. Some of these CCAs will be by invitation only as pupils will have been identified as needing a little extra help, and some CCAs will be designed to provide more challenges for our pupils. Pupils who are representing the school in sporting events may need to attend extra CCAs that are specific to them and may fall outside of the normal CCAs times. This is so that our pupils have the best opportunity to be successful.

Secondary CCA

As well as active CCAs, the Secondary CCAs have academic sessions for a range of subjects. These often culminate in revision sessions for the public examinations. Lower age groups have the opportunity to enhance their language skills or try out completely new languages as well as mentally challenging CCAs. There are opportunities to represent the school in debating in local and international competitions, as well as participating in the Model United Nations. More adventurous pupils can participate in the International Award, which encourages leadership and teambuilding skills.

Throughout the year we provide our community with an educational experience which enables our students to fulfil their potential academically, physically, culturally and socially within a global and future context. This is done through day, overnight and international trips such as our Humanities trip to Japan, overnight adventure camping trips, skiing days, art and musical recitals to name a few.

To provide goals and challenges for all our pupils, the school actively participates in competitions through COASH and COBIS which include; football, basketball, debating, volleyball, swimming and chess. In addition, other events and competitions take place throughout the year.

Our CCAs enhance a holistic education and provide the opportunity in which pupils can step outside their comfort zone and take risks that challenge them academically and physically, all within a safe environment. These are some of the key values that lie at the Heart of Haileybury Almaty.

The activities are run on a quarterly basis and once a pupil has elected to join an activity, participation is expected for the whole of that quarter. Places in activities will be allocated via an online process on a first come first served basis.
