New Headmaster of Haileybury Astana from September 2020

Dear Parents,

On behalf of the Board of Governors of Haileybury schools in Kazakhstan, I am writing to you with important news about Haileybury Astana.

I am delighted to inform you that after formal interviews with a panel of Haileybury Governors, the Board has appointed Mr John Coles to the position of Headmaster of Haileybury Astana as from September 2020. Mr Coles is currently acting Headmaster of Haileybury Almaty, and has also been a Head of department in Haileybury UK. He has also served as a deputy Headmaster for 7 years in both a Top U.K. private school and Haileybury Almaty.

The Board felt that the combination of this experience, and his knowledge of Kazakhstan made him the outstanding candidate for the role. Mr Coles has committed to an initial 5 year contract and this will allow the school to undergo a period of stability and development following on from the excellent results that the current Headmaster, Mark Smith has achieved.

Of course, Mr Smith will continue to be Haileybury Astana Headmaster until the summer of 2020 when we will have the opportunity to show our thanks and gratitude for the superb work and service that he has given the school. It will have only been 5 terms that Mr Smith has been with us, but it is clear that Mr Coles will be taking over a school in excellent health and we all look forward to welcoming him and his wife Sylvie, and son Louis, to the City of Nur-Sultan.

There will be opportunities for all parents to meet Mr Coles in the coming months, and the school will inform parents of these visits.

Yours sincerely,

Ian Hunt,

Chairman,

Haileybury Schools, Kazakhstan
