Welcome to Haileybury

"A Haileybury education is open-minded and forward-looking but it also draws on our rich heritage. It is an education that provides our pupils with a moral compass; it prepares them for the very best universities and for life as successful global citizens."

Martin Collier The Master

Haileybury - where inspiration flourishes

Founded in 1862, Haileybury is an independent co-educational boarding school which offers a fully-rounded education for boys and girls aged 11 to 18.

Academic opportunity

We offer a dedicated Lower School for Years 7 and 8, a wide range of GCSE and (I)GCSEs, and the choice of the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma or A Levels in Sixth Form.

In the 2016 Sunday Times independent school league table, Haileybury was the highest co-ed boarding school for IB Diploma results and 31st for A Levels and GCSEs. Our aim is to get every pupil into their first-choice university.

Development of confidence

A key part of our philosophy is about empowering each child to follow their passion and to build their self-confidence.

So we also provide an enormous range of co-curricular opportunities, spanning everything from music and drama to sport and physical activities. There is also a huge number of clubs and societies to cater for all interests.

Supportive environment

A caring environment is crucial to happiness and fulfilment. For those who come here, Haileybury is like a home-from-home. Warm and friendly, we give each and every child the confidence to find their identity, embracing failings as much as successes in their personal journey of discovery.
