Schools events

We organise a huge variety of events for schools to enable their use of our wonderful campus and facilities and so that pupils can gain first-hand experience of all that Haileybury has to offer. Peruse the range of opportunities for your school, then get in touch and get involved.

Haileybury Trench Trail for schools

Autumn Term trench trail school visits are fully booked! Plans are being laid for Spring Term 2015 - watch this space.

This summer Haileybury will be constructing a replica command trench in the grounds of the College which will be open to visiting school groups during the Autumn Term.

We hope our trench trail will provide a unique and valuable perspective on one of the most tragic and important chapters in the history of both our school and country.” Joe Davies, Master of Haileybury

Launch of the Haileybury Prep & Primary Schools' Festival of Arts 2015

The theme for the Haileybury Prep & Primary Schools Festival of Arts 2015 is Landscapes. The theme document can be downloaded below and includes trigger words and an extract from a poem.

We were delighted to welcome entries from 31 prep and primary schools (from Years 3 to 8) for our annual Art and Creative Writing competitions in 2014. The judges were hugely impressed by the high quality of all the children's work and found it very difficult to select the prize-winners.

The artwork and creative writing pieces for the 2014 Festival were once again exhibited in two specially-erected marquees in Memorial Quad at Haileybury during the Summer Term.

How your school can get involved for 2015: Full details, including competition rules, submission guidelines and entry forms will be sent out to schools in December.

Please note that the deadline date for submitting entries is Friday 13 March 2015 and the awards ceremony will take place on Saturday 6 June.

We are looking forward to including pupils' work from more schools than ever in our Festival of Arts exhibitions so let your Art and English teachers know you want join in for 2015!

U10 Girls' Netball Tournament - February 2015

Prep & Primary School Year 5 Mathematics Challenge - Thursday 26 March 2015

Haileybury’s annual Maths Challenge is taking place on Thursday 26 March, 2015 and we hope your school is able to take up this opportunity for a team of four Year 5 pupils.

Once again, Douglas Buchanan of DCBeagle Challenges will run the event. The Challenge gives talented young mathematicians the opportunity to stretch their skills amongst like-minded people in a competitive environment.

The young mathematicians will participate in six different mathematical tasks gaining points as they go along. At each of the six stations the young mathematicians could be solving puzzles using calculators, pentominoes, playing cards, tangrams or dominoes. The final round brings all the young mathematicians together where they are tasked with lateral thinking questions, bringing the event to an exciting conclusion. No preparation is required and all instructions for the activities during the afternoon will be clearly explained. Samples of activities can be found at:

The Challenge will begin at 10.30 am with schools asked to arrive at Haileybury between 10 and 10.15 am in order to register. Lunch will be available for visiting pupils and staff in the Dining Hall and we anticipate the event will finish by 2.00 pm at the latest.

If you would like to bring a team along to this free event, please reserve your place by using the event registration form. Please note that places are limited so, if for any reason your school is unable to attend the Challenge after reserving a place, please contact the box office.
