We are very sorry to announce that, due to recent staffing issues, we are unable to run the activity week at Haileybury this year. We realise how disappointing this will be for families and have not taken this decision lightly.
The Activity Week has always been an important part of our summer programme and we do plan to run the event next year. All families who have expressed an interest have been contacted and as soon as plans for 2014 are in place, details will appear here.
A programme of Family Events will take place during the 2013-14 academic year and full details can be found on our Family Events pages. We look forward to welcoming you to Haileybury in the near future.
Activity Week - a residential, action-packed week
The annual Activity Week is offered on a residential basis for 8-to-13-year-olds regardless of affiliation to the College. Children are accommodated in Haileybury boarding Houses under the supervision of our own highly qualified and experienced staff.
The idea of the course is to provide an action-packed week giving youngsters the opportunity to acquire new skills and develop their expertise in sports, drama and fun art & design technology projects.
Activities include leadership and team games such as "mini-Olympics" and Capture the Flag, together with a huge range of sporting and creative activities such as:
'It's a Water Knockout'
The course is a wonderful introduction to Haileybury's facilities and to the unique atmosphere here, and has proved to be a very exciting, yet gentle introduction to boarding life.
"The course provided exposure to activities my son cannot get elsewhere, enabled him to make new friends and reinforced his confidence."
