Edmonstone House, like its namesake at Haileybury UK is named after Sir George Edmonstone, a senior official in British India. The house colours are the blue and white of Trinity College Oxford, the college of Henry Couchman, Edmonstone's first ever Housemaster. Whilst our name is rooted in the past, the House is very much forward looking and has a strong emphasis on care for others and outreach to the community. Over the last few years the House has been working with the Women’s Shelter, providing weekly mentoring for children from the shelter, fundraising for improvements to the shelter’s facilities and leading pupil trips to the shelter to carry out community art projects.
Edmonstone House is the blue house and we are very proud of our heritage. A long standing House at Haileybury we continue the tradition in Almaty of never giving up.

Prior to joining Haileybury in 2018, Mr Wilkinson worked in the boarding system at a prestigious boarding school in Malaysia. As a humanities teacher and farmer’s son, he is particularly interested in fostering an “Edmo” House atmosphere centred around community and appreciation for sports and the great outdoors. He has led the promotion of male health and mental health awareness during the staff Bishkek charity bike ride. At Haileybury he is also also quiz master in chief at the University Challenge Inter House Quiz which, embarrassingly, has been claimed by Edmonstone two year’s running.
