Junior School in Almaty (ages 4 -11)

British independent school in Haileybury Almaty

A very warm welcome to the Junior School which comprises over 350 pupils across Reception to Year 6 (pupils aged 4 to 11 years).

Our mission is provide our community with an educational experience which enables our pupils to fulfil their potential academically, physically, culturally and socially within a global and future context.

This mission is underpinned by our Haileybury Habits:

  • Inquisitive
  • Reflective
  • Resourceful
  • Courageous
  • Organised
  • Resilient

Throughout their time in the Junior School pupils learn through an interesting and engaging curriculum which develops their skills, knowledge and Haileybury Habits. Many special events, quizzes, trips and themed days enhance the pupils joy and love for learning.

Our pupils leave the Junior school, socially and academically ready for life in the Upper School. Their academic standards are comparatively higher than U.K benchmarks in English, Maths and Science.

Reception Class (ages 4-5)

The Reception Class follows the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. The curriculum prioritises the development of the whole child through targeted teaching and areas of continuous provision. The key areas of development are: Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Physical Development and Communication and Language, Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design.

At this age, pupils are provided with a range of fun learning experiences which are based on the child’s own interests and current levels of development. Our excellent staff to pupil ratio allows us to know the individual needs of each child and provide not only a caring and nurturing environment but also one in which they can develop their level of English and also develop a love of school. Excellent relationships between parents and school are a priority as they ensure the best outcomes for pupils.

Pupils develop their basic skills across the curriculum, developing language and mathematical skills which will underpin their success later on in their school life.
