As you walk around the school, you will see our children wearing their house ties. Members of Bartle Frere are known for their pride in their achievements, good sportsmanship and teamwork.
Bartle Frere encourages a strong sense of pride in every aspect of school life and building a team spirit, where every member of the house makes a contribution to our goals.
The facilities at Haileybury in Almaty are second to none and we all feel very privileged to be able to learn and grow in such an extraordinary and well-resourced environment. With its backdrop if the Tien Shan mountains we have a spectacular setting in which to flourish.
