Edmonstone is named after Sir George Edmonstone, Lieutenant Governor of the North-West Province and Foreign Secretary to the Government of India during the Mutiny. Sir George held this post from 1859-1863, he was born in Calcutta India.
The house colours, mentioned earlier, are the blue and white of Trinity College Oxford, the college of Henry Couchman, Edmonstone's first Housemaster.
As you walk around the school, you will see our children wearing their house ties. Edmonstonians take pride in their achievements, their good manners and their consideration for others.
Edmonstone encourages a sense of strong community where everyone is part of the team and make a contribution to our collective success.
A very big part of the day to day operations of the Houses at Haileybury is our pastoral responsibility. This looks at barriers to learning of any kind, this may be academic but other barriers to learning exist as well. The Haileybury Almaty House System is at the spear head of the solutions to these kinds of problems. Through a class based tutor system all of our class teachers in Lower School or class tutors in Upper School are equipped to provide pastoral support and assistance to any student who finds themselves in a difficult situation.
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.
