Through the introduction of a vertically structured House system, divided by age, Haileybury Almaty inherently has the framework required to ensure that each individual pupil is supported and known throughout their time at the school. Within a growing community, we are fortunate to be increasing our facility infrastructure, and through the work of the Heads of House, House Tutors and School Counsellor, a small school close-knit environment is preserved within the context of a flourishing international school context.
Darshak Pandya, Deputy Head (Pastoral)
University of Sheffield, University of Leicester, University of Nottingham, BEng Aerospace Engineering, MA in Education, PGCE, QTS, NPQML
Through a love for Mathematics and Physics, Mr Pandya read Aerospace Engineering at the University of Sheffield before going on to work for Mad Science, an educational company specialising in scientific workshops that inspire and motivate students of all ages. It was here that his passion for teaching began and he decided to return to university as a postgraduate in order to train as a Mathematics teacher. Whilst working in England, Mr Pandya was fascinated by the journey young people take in order to learn, and subsequently continued on from a PGCE to a Masters in Education.
At Haileybury Almaty, Mr Pandya enjoys being involved with the wider community and being part of a pastoral system that is integral to the school's commitment to nurture a happy and positive learning environment where everyone is valued. He aims to develop strong and positive relationships, not only with the pupils, but also with parents as part of his responsibility to ensure that every child strives for academic success, is cared for within a thorough pastoral system and is ultimately on the path to becoming future global leaders.
