Haileybury named Boarding School of the Year

We are thrilled to announce that Haileybury has been awarded the prestigious title of Boarding School of the Year 2024 by Tes. This national accolade was presented at an exciting ceremony held on 21 June in London, where Haileybury stood out among the best in education, sharing the spotlight with other esteemed nominees.

Haileybury’s coeducational boarding programme is widely recognised as one of the finest in Britain. Our world-class community, top-tier academics, extensive co-curricular offerings, and stunning 500-acre campus in the Hertfordshire countryside, contribute to our recognition. “I am delighted that our school was named as the Boarding School of the Year 2024 at the TES School Awards. To win such an award is a considerable accolade and a reflection of the outstanding work of all staff,” shared Master Martin Collier.

A distinguished panel of judges, including school leaders, experts, and education researchers, carefully evaluated the entries to select the 2024 candidates. Their rigorous assessment process underscores the significance of this accolade for Haileybury.

Our success in securing this coveted award can be attributed to several key factors that set Haileybury apart:

  1. Academic excellence: We rank among the top 5 IB schools and top 30 UK independent schools for exam results.
  2. Comprehensive co-curricular programme: We offer a wide range of activities that complement our strong academic focus.
  3. Innovative pastoral care: Our approach combines warmth and enjoyment with evidence-based research, as highlighted in our Haileybury Journal of Educational Research.
  4. Focus on pupil wellbeing: Our use of wellbeing assessment tools and dedication to pastoral care create a supportive environment for all pupils.
  5. Commitment to professional development: We prioritise ongoing learning for our staff, particularly in areas of proactive pastoral care and pupil wellbeing.
  6. Diversity and inclusion: We’ve achieved a 50:50 female to male enrolment ratio and celebrate a wide range of cultures and nationalities.
  7. World-class community: Our 500-acre campus in the Hertfordshire countryside provides a stunning backdrop for a diverse pupil body.

This award not only recognises our current achievements but also reinforces our vision to become a global leader in boarding and pastoral care. We are proud to set new standards in boarding excellence and remain committed to providing an exceptional, transformative experience for all our pupils.
