What makes Haileybury Astana a great school?

Why choose Haileybury?

We prepare boys and girls for their first-choice university, and life as global citizens. We do this by inspiring academic excellence, and developing leadership and teamwork skills through a wide range of co-curricular activities in a supportive and nurturing environment. This leads to our children developing character, resilience, self-confidence, and strong social skills.

Haileybury Kazakhstan is a pathway to the world’s top universities

Haileybury Astana offers the International Baccalaureate (IB) program. IB is recognized by the top universities throughout the world. It can give up to a year’s credit at some American and international universities due to its breadth and scope. Six subjects are studied along with Theory of Knowledge, Creativity, Action and Service and an Extended Essay. Grades at IB range from 24 points to gain the Diploma, to a maximum of 45 points. Oxford and Cambridge typically ask for 38-40 points. Our first IB students will be applying to university for September 2019.

Our teachers are fully qualified: most were trained in the UK and have experience of teaching in UK schools. Most also have experience of teaching overseas. We are committed to safeguarding in our schools, and so all of our teachers and staff are checked to ensure they are safe to work with children.

Our son Thomas first joined Haileybury Astana at the age of 4 in 2015 when we arrived in the city. He settled in immediately and was fully immersed into Haileybury life by the end of his first week. As a British family living in Astana we are delighted that Thomas can follow the English school curriculum so that he can slot straight back into the system when we eventually return home. Children at Haileybury Astana benefit from much more than an English education; they are exposed to a wider variety of subjects, opportunities, languages, cultures and other learning experiences than they otherwise would be.
