Haileybury Almaty (HAL) is situated in the vibrant city of Almaty, Kazakhstan, and was the first Haileybury school to be established in the country. With an ever-expanding student body that currently sits at close to 800 pupils ranging from Reception to Year 13 (ages 4-18), HAL offers a unique educational experience. Our primary medium of instruction is English, complemented by dedicated teaching of the Kazakh language and history.

Nestled at the base of the Zailiysky Alatau mountain range, Almaty is a true hidden gem. These mountains are part of the majestic Tien Shan range, extending all the way to the Himalayas in the South and the Altai range in the North.

Kazakhstan has celebrated three decades of independence, with its remarkable progress attributed to policies of neutrality, ethnic tolerance, and balanced international relations. This has attracted substantial foreign investment across all sectors, leading to impressive and resilient economic growth.

The city boasts a diverse array of restaurants, clubs, and bars, all set in a relaxed cafe atmosphere. Warm summers and the surrounding countryside offer boundless opportunities for trekking and mountain exploration. Just a short drive from the city, you will encounter breathtaking vistas in the Zhailau mountains.

A 15-minute journey takes you to Medeo, home to an expansive open-air ice rink. Nighttime skating amid falling snowflakes is enchanting and breathtaking. For adventure seekers, the world's second-longest gondola ride from Medeo to the Shymbulak ski resort awaits. Shymbulak offers year-round attractions, from beautiful alpine meadows in the summer to a European standard ski and snowboarding resort in winter, including mesmerising floodlit night skiing.

At HAL, we understand the value of providing a comprehensive educational experience. In addition to our IGCSE and A-Level programmes, parents appreciate our diverse extracurricular activities such as sports, drama, music, community service, debating, Model United Nations, and the International Award (Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme). These offerings complement our rigorous academic curriculum.
