Set in more than 500 acres of Hertfordshire countryside, Haileybury’s grounds are some of the most exquisite and beautiful of any school in the UK.
Around half the site comprises formal and informal gardens, sports pitches and associated grounds, with the remainder being woodland.
A dedicated team of groundskeepers ensure the pitches are in perfect condition and that other areas are managed and preserved for future generations.
Terrace Field with its backdrop of Wilkins’s majestic Grecian terrace is unique. Originally open pasture, Terrace was home to cricket before hosting rugby in the late 19th Century and today remains one of the most picturesque grounds where the game is played.
Haileybury’s Pavilion cricket pitch, with its delightful late Victorian pavilion and the Edwardian viewing rooms (now the Sixth Form Centre), is the stuff of fond bucolic memory for everyone who has sat and watched a match there.
Haileybury’s grounds are also used by Tottenham Hotspur Football Club and Hertfordshire Rugby, in conjunction with London club Saracens.
In 2015, Haileybury hosted the national rugby teams of Argentina and the USA, both of which used the facilities during the World Cup.
