Haileybury Almaty is so much more than the leading academic school in Almaty; it is a community of excellence. Founded in 2008, Haileybury Almaty provides an outstanding holistic education and is a fully accredited member of COBIS and FOBISIA.
Located within the city of Almaty, a true hidden gem of Central Asia, the city is a beautiful lively, modern, family-friendly metropolis with a rich cultural life, situated near the stunning Tien Shan Mountains. Kazakhstan is a diverse and fascinating country, relatively unknown but loved by so many who visit.
As a school, we have a strong focus on academic progress and achievement and pupil leadership is at the very heart of our ethos. When families join Haileybury they become lifelong members of a school, which puts the child at the centre of everything.
Our not-for-profit status means we continually reinvest for the future development of the school. The high quality teaching and excellent extra-curricular provision make Haileybury Almaty a very special place to work.
We offer a curriculum that is based on the British curriculum and the best of international and Kazakh curricula and cater for over 700 children, aged from four to eighteen. Pupils work in an environment where they are stretched and challenged, and have their expectations raised to achieve demanding targets. Our pupils prepare for the IGCSE and the A level programme and our Sixth Form leavers go on to achieve places in world class elite universities, with a particular focus on US Ivy League and UK Russell Group universities. In 2019 our pupils achieved 60% A*/A grades at A Level. Such success is a result of the partnership between the school, our pupils and their parents through our commitment to parental engagement.
We seek inspirational teachers with a passion for learning and their subject areas; the manner in which learning happens and for whom education occurs both inside and outside of the classroom through a contribution to the extensive co-curricular programme we offer. Above all, we want committed, passionate teachers who are aligned with our vision; what we do and who wish to make a difference to our pupils’ lives.
