On behalf of the IB team here at Haileybury Astana, I would like to extend a warm welcome to you and your parents.
At Haileybury Astana, we believe the International Baccalaureate Diploma to be the best educational experience on offer today. The International Baccalaureate Diploma (IBDP) offers a broad and balanced range of subjects that makes it the best preparation for the most competitive universities around the world. As you move into Year 12, you are faced with a variety of options, which is both exciting and daunting in equal measure. What subjects do I choose? Is the IB right for me? Which university should I choose? At Haileybury Astana, we understand that you are facing many uncertainties; however, my team and I are here to offer expert tailored support and advice that should go someway to alleviating any uncertainty you may have.
The information that can be found on our website pages is intended to inform both you and your parents about the opportunities available on the IB Diploma programme here at Haileybury Astana. The site contains useful information about the IB, as well as what we offer here at Haileybury.
I hope you find everything you need; however, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me directly.


I have been teaching the IB for 7 years now, and I have found these years to be the most rewarding of my career. The IB students I have worked with have been some of the best with the majority going on to world-class universities and securing excellent jobs in their home countries or abroad. As a teacher, you have the opportunity to have a positive impact on an awful lot of lives, which is not something that is afforded to those in other professions. I am looking forward to working with the students here at Haileybury Astana, as their Head of Sixth Form and seeing many more pupils go on to have successful careers.   

Investing in the IB

The school has invested in IB education through the development of the IB Centre and the Abay Seminar Room. The new IB Centre was complete in 2018 and is an inspirational environment built for a thriving, international Sixth Form. This facility will help us to implement the IB vision, which combines academic strength, broad co-curricular opportunity and a powerful service ethos. Within this space, we will cultivate excellent study and research habits, and a clear understanding of the 21st century workplace, thereby easing the transition to university and careers.
