fbpx Football - Haileybury

Pele’s O Jogo Bonito – “The Beautiful Game” – is a relatively recent addition to the sports curriculum at Haileybury. Those who play are held in high regard, with most of the School now turning up to watch and enjoy matches – whether played by boys or girls.

Football at Haileybury gained recognition in the late 1960s and early 1970s and has grown hugely since then due to the continued demand, enthusiasm and talent of pupils of both sexes.

Schools competitions

Haileybury fields up to five Senior (Sixth Form) teams and three teams at U16 (Colts), U15 (Junior Colts) and U14 (Yearlings). During the Easter Term, Haileybury competes against Harrow, Tonbridge, Wellington, St John’s (Leatherhead), St Paul’s and Radley in a mini-league.


At Haileybury, our Sports Scholars are those with strong sporting and leadership abilities and a particularly impressive competitive ethic. Scholarships for talented football players are well contested; the best will also be invited to join our High Performance Sports Programme.
