Bartle Frere is named after Sir Henry Bartle Frere, Governor of Bombay and later High Commissioner of the Cape Colony. Its badge is that of a "blue moon thereupon a crimson moon" with House colours of crimson and blue.

Bartle Frere House

Bartle Frere house at Haileybury Almaty has the colours of crimson and blue, which reflect the house by the same name at Haileybury UK. Every member of the house is proud to be seen in their house tie and this creates a strong bond between Haileybury UK and Haileybury in Almaty.

Junior School

Peter Gooding began teaching at Haileybury in 2012 and became Bartle Frere House Master at the start of the 2015 2016 academic year. Peter is very proud of the enthusiasm and sportsmanship shown by all members of Bartle Frere and looks forward to facing future challenges together as a house.

Senior School

Mr Liam Streat is the Housemaster for Bartle Frere in the Senior School and with his friendly and approachable manner he has made the students feel part of the House. This means they are now willing to get involved, support their house and ask questions whenever unsure. The tutors and Student Leadership team are also working hard to make Bartle Frere a fully inclusive and supportive community in which every student can improve not only academically but also with regards to their holistic development. 

We have regular House events and competitions which give the students opportunities to work together as a team, lead, communicate, challenge themselves and most importantly have fun. Keep an eye on the school calendar for all the exciting events we have planned.

Dear Parents, 

I have written to you on a number of occasions recently and, as promised, I am pleased to share with you the full Campus reopening roadmap for our two Haileybury schools in Almaty and Nur-Sultan. 

As you can see, we have tried to cover every aspect of a safe and secure opening for our schools and we are confident that we have adopted the best practice from around the world.

However, please understand that this is a live document and is subject to change, adaptation and addition as we gain further information from around the world and indeed our own Ministry of Health and Education. 

In terms of exactly who we can welcome back onto campus at the start of the academic year, we continue to have a dialogue with the Ministry of Education, and we will clarify that as soon as we are officially informed. 

Kind regards,

Ian Hunt, Chairman of the Board of Governors
