Founded in 1862, we are an independent co-educational boarding and day school, located in 500 acres of beautiful Hertfordshire countryside, for pupils aged 11-18.
Spectacular grounds are home to outstanding facilities, excellent teaching and superb pastoral care for our community of boarding and day pupils.
We offer a dedicated Lower School for Years 7 and 8, a wide range of GCSEs and IGCSEs and the choice of the IB Diploma Programme or A levels in the Sixth Form. Haileybury is ranked Top 6 in The Times league table for co-ed independent schools which offer the IB.
Boarding and day
More than two thirds of pupils are boarders with school life centred around 12 boarding houses and Lower School benefitting from having their own house. Pupils join at 11+, 13+, 14+ or 16+ entry points.
A key part of the school’s philosophy is empowering each child to follow their passions and build self-confidence. Pupils benefit from professional sports coaching and the school regularly hosts speakers and performers from the arts, sporting and academic worlds. The Good Schools Guide ranked us Top 3 for our co-curricular offering. There is a packed programme of more than 130 options, from scuba diving and African drumming to bee-keeping, Mandarin and survival skills.
At Haileybury, a caring environment is crucial to a pupil’s happiness and fulfilment. There is an emphasis on pastoral care with round-the-clock support from housemasters and housemistresses, matron, to the chaplain, tutors, and a resident doctor. The school is a home-from-home, with a warm and friendly feel.
