We prepare boys and girls for their first-choice university, and life as global citizens. We do this by inspiring academic excellence, and developing leadership and teamwork skills through a wide range of co-curricular activities in a supportive and nurturing environment. This leads to our children developing character, resilience, self-confidence, and strong social skills.
Haileybury Astana offers the International Baccalaureate (IB) program. IB is recognized by the top universities throughout the world. It can give up to a year’s credit at some American and international universities due to its breadth and scope. Six subjects are studied along with Theory of Knowledge, Creativity, Action and Service and an Extended Essay. Grades at IB range from 24 points to gain the Diploma, to a maximum of 45 points. Oxford and Cambridge typically ask for 38-40 points. Our first IB students will be applying to university for September 2019.
Our teachers are fully qualified: most were trained in the UK and have experience of teaching in UK schools. Most also have experience of teaching overseas. We are committed to safeguarding in our schools, and so all of our teachers and staff are checked to ensure they are safe to work with children.
At Haileybury, Your child will receive a world-class education based on the British system, but drawing also from the best practice around the world. Most importantly, they will develop the skills needed to succeed in the future in a global environment. In an environment where all pupils are encouraged to take part in a range of activities outside of the classroom designed to supplement their holistic learning, leadership, confidence in public speaking, problem solving and a capacity to learn independently are all highly valued soft skills that employers and Higher education institutions value enormously. Our aim is to unlock the educational potential inside every child.
Haileybury Astana is located in a beautiful, natural park and site, along with the bank of Ishim river. The school is spacious with excellent facilities and grounds with room for significant expansion. Its location in the capital city is in the middle of a growing residential area and the school benefits from the relocation of key personnel from Almaty to the new capital of Astana. A new Sports Hall was opened in February 2019 and the new IB center opened in March 2018.
Haileybury Astana and Haileybury Almaty are committed to the welfare and Safeguarding of young people. As part of our recruitment processes we require all applicants to undergo police checks and U.K. DBS checks and we operate clear safeguarding protocols.Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy
