We organise a huge variety of events for Primary and Preparatory Schools to enable their use of our wonderful campus and facilities and so that younger pupils can gain first-hand experience of all that Haileybury has to offer.
Annual events include the IAPS Under 11 Boys' Hockey South Division Tournament, Under 10 Girls' Netball Tournament, Science Challenge, Under 11 Boys' Cricket Festival and the Festival of Arts each June featuring the prep and primary schools' creative writing and art competition.
Please note the Year 5 Maths Challenge will now take place on Tuesday 23 April (postponed from March). This event is now FULLY BOOKED and all participating schools have been contacted.
Haileybury's inaugural Girls' Football Tournaments are taking place in April and June - we hope your school is able to take up this opportunity to challenge other schools for the Haileybury Girls’ Football Trophies.
The competition will be seven-a-side and U13 teams can be made up of pupils from Years 7 and 8; U15 teams from Years 9 and 10 and U18 teams from Years 11, 12 and 13. We hope the tournament will be both competitive and successful in the promotion of girls’ participation in sport in general, and football in particular. Girls’ and women’s football has grown hugely in the UK and internationally and Haileybury is keen to be involved in this growth.
Although holding the tournament in the Summer Term is no guarantee of drier conditions, Summer Term football has the advantages of potentially warmer weather with better pitch conditions. Play will begin after lunch, with schools encouraged to arrive at Haileybury before that in order to change and warm up.
If you would like to bring a team along, please reserve a space by completing the online school events booking form. All confirmed reservations will be acknowledged and schools who have successfuly reserved a place in the tournament will be contacted by Haileybury again in the weeks prior to each tournament.
In a slight change to previous years’ events, the 2013 Challenge was for teams of four Year 5 pupils. The annual Science Challenge consists of three science-based tasks, involving problem-solving skills and teamwork. Each task is judged and teams awarded marks leading to an overall winner. Parents are warmly invited to attend the final presentations at the conclusion of the day.
