Kipling House is named after the legendary author and poet Rudyard Kipling, a former Haileyburian, most known for writing the novel ‘The Jungle Book’ amongst others and the icon poem ‘If’. Rudyard became the sixth person ever to become a Nobel Laureate having been awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1907. Many of his works are still relevant today and some have even been made into movies or adapted for use in 21st-century education.
Kipling House in the Junior School has a very big part to play in our community. The staff and children of Kipling House are very proud of their Haileybury heritage and even prouder of their namesake, Rudyard Kipling. They apply all of the passion of his world famous poem into everything that they do and wear their green ties and t-shirts at events such as Sports Day with enormous pride.
Joshua Liversidge has been teaching at Haileybury Almaty for the past 5 years as a Geography teacher, Head of Key Stage and for the past 2 years Kipling Housemaster. He believes in giving each student the possibility to develop new skills and can be seen encouraging Kipling pupils to always go above and beyond. He is proud to be the Kipling Housemaster and looks forward to driving the house forwards, maintaining the strong service and musical ethos that already exists amongst students while developing new opportunities for all those involved in the Kipling community, including parents, staff and of course the students. He aims to drive a sense of belonging and pride amongst all in Kipling, setting an example for others within the school.
