Edmonstone encourages a sense of strong community where everyone is part of the team and make a contribution to our collective success.

Edmonstone House

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.

Junior School

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.

Edmonstone House in the Junior School is led by Mr Charles Clarke.

Senior School

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.

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
