Haileybury Astana

Haileybury Astana opened in September 2012 and is located at Ivan Panfilov St 4, Astana. It is a non-profit organisation originally funded by a charitable donation from its founders. The School is managed by the Board of Governors which is composed of representatives from Haileybury UK and the Kazakhstan Founders. The school has a partner school in Almaty and is part of the wider Haileybury Schools Group. In 2011 the school underwent institutional accreditation by the International Accreditation and Rating Agency of Kazakhstan and received full accreditation status.

School Strategic Objectives

Our strategic planning process is always about the future and invariably builds on Haileybury Astana’s past and present accomplishments. One outcome of this process is confirmation that we start from a position of great strength. We have an outstanding faculty and administration, and a community of responsible and engaged students. We have sound financial health and a robust curriculum that promotes skills essential for future success. From this fortunate position, we are able to aspire to achieve even greater heights.

Our community identified five key Strategic Objectives to translate the Haileybury Astana mission and vision into practice. These initiatives specify concrete steps for advancing Haileybury Astana as an inclusive, student-centred community in the coming years.

The five Strategic Objectives are:

  • Our Teaching and Learning 
  • Our Wellbeing
  • Our Community
  • Our Sustainability
  • Our Innovation

Each of these represents our medium- and long-term objectives as a school. All objectives are interlinked, specifying key areas to advance Haileybury Astana’s mission and vision. Uniting the school community around our vision and future direction is necessary to facilitate each student’s growth through personalised, student-centred learning. To achieve these objectives, we recognize the importance of optimising school systems that increase the flexibility of resources – including space, scheduling, time, and technology. Finally, by implementing these five objectives we can advocate for and support each student’s intellectual, physical, and social-emotional health in partnership with students and families.
