Haileybury owes its very existence to the generosity of a group of donors who purchased the grounds for £18,000, enabling the school to open its doors to pupils on 23 September 1862. It all began with the arrival of two boys from Yorkshire; now we have more than 750 boys and girls from all over the world.
From the Lower School through to the Sixth Form, pupils enjoy a rich curriculum. Complementing this curriculum, the College offers a wide variety of activities and clubs to nurture pupils’ interests, talents and individuality. But academic choice and co-curricular variety need space, and our spaces need ongoing development and improvements.
The buildings, our facilities, are here because of the support we have received for more than 150 years from the broader Haileybury community. In recent years, philanthropic gifts to Haileybury have allowed us to develop or build areas including the Modern Languages Centre, Grubber and all-weather Astroturf pitches.
Maintaining our buildings, and enhancing our teaching and learning environment across all our buildings both old and new, is an important and costly process.
Starting in summer 2017, we look forward to creating a new Sixth Form Centre and the conversion of the Science Block and Design Technology Centre into a new STEM Centre (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). All these projects will greatly enhance our ability to fulfil our educational purpose.
