COBIS (Council of British international Schools)

After COBIS visit in November 2018, they have informed us that the school has met the standards for the Patron’s Accreditation and Compliance programme (the highest level of COBIS accreditation which recognises high-quality international British schools overseas). You will see from the report that there are 4 possible levels of judgment and it’s an outstanding achievement for Haileybury to be judged as providing evidence of best practice (the highest judgement level) in almost every category.

CIS Membership

Following the recent Evaluation carried out by Stuart McLay, concluding on the 6th December 2018, we are pleased to announce that Haileybury Astana has been granted membership of the Council of International Schools (CIS) together with candidate status for CIS Accreditation. We have been selected to be the first school in CIS history to embark on an accelerated accreditation process, which is for schools demonstrating effective alignment with many accreditation standards at the membership evaluation stage.

Mr. Edmond Maher, Director of School Support & Evaluation, in his formal letter of acknowledgement wrote:

My congratulations go to you and your school community on this achievement and on your commitment to the shared vision held by CIS school members around the world – a desire to provide students with the knowledge, skills and abilities to pursue their lives as global citizens and a commitment to high quality education and sustainable school improvement. The report comments on many positive school features, which support the award of membership and the recommendation for accreditation candidacy and the most important of these are identified as major commendations’
We are immensely proud of this achievement, and we would like to thank the school community for their support. This is the start of an exciting journey, which will see us benchmark ourselves against internationally recognised standards and is testament to our continued commitment to improve the service we provide the Haileybury Astana community.
