Tracing Haileybury's journey from foundation to present day, and using visual and documentary material from the School archives, along with specially commissioned photography, this will be a beautifully designed and produced volume for every Haileyburian to treasure. The book will be published in summer 2012, but

Haileybury's sailing team had a successful weekend during the BSDRA Midlands regatta at Bray Lake. There were 14 schools in attendance and Haileybury managed to win their "fleet" of four, beating Wellington, Millfield and Pangbourne. This took us into the semi-final where we came up against Magdalene College School, who narrowly beat us. MCS then beat the Eton second team (we beat their 1st team in March!) in the final. Haileybury took home the BSRDA Thames Valley Regatta Bronze Trophy (for winning the "fleet").
