What the school says...

Haileybury is a co-educational boarding school located between London and Cambridge, set in 500 acres of beautiful rural Hertfordshire. The spectacular grounds are home to outstanding facilities, excellent teaching, superb pastoral care and 774 enthusiastic boarding and day pupils.

Founded in 1862, Haileybury is proud of its history, tradition, community and values, taking the best from the past while looking to the future. Academic achievement and outstanding co-curricular provision are at the heart of the school, offering Haileyburians a truly all-round education and ensuring they leave as confident, tolerant and ambitious individuals who are leaders and life-long learners.

Haileybury is a boarding school with day pupils, with a boarding to day ratio of around 2:1. In 1999 there were 372 boarders at the school, rising to 516 in 2013, an almost 40% increase. The Master, Joe Davies, attributes Haileybury’s success to the fact that the school provides its boarders with a fulfilling, happy experience.

We offer a dedicated Lower School (Years 7 and 8), a unique Year 9 curriculum, a wide range of I/GCSEs and the choice of IB Diploma or A Levels in the Sixth Form. Haileybury has taught the IB for 16 years and achieves consistently excellent results.

Haileybury offers a range of Academic, Music or Sports scholarships which are measured as a percentage of the school fees. Bursaries are also available to all applicants according to need and are not reserved only for those who have been awarded scholarships.

Special Education Needs

We are a small, fully qualified team which can provide specialist teacher assessments and specialist teaching for specific learning difficulties. Pupils are withdrawn from subject lessons once per fortnight for individual tuition which often focuses on spelling rules, writing skills, reading skills, comprehension exercises, memory trainers, study skills and exam and revision strategies. Each child has an individually-designed learning programme. Some pupils receive weekly tuition and this may involve supporting them with classwork and prep. We liaise with parents directly to discuss and review the support programme. Overseas children are able to have individual or group EAL teaching which normally takes place at the times pupils are not taking a Modern Foreign Language. Parents are required to pay an extra charge for all tuition.
