"Haileybury offers a unique learning environment where every pupil is actively encouraged to explore their interests, blossom academically and grow into confident and generous individuals."

Joe Davies, Master

Founded in 1862, Haileybury is an independent co-educational boarding and day school which offers a fully-rounded education for boys and girls aged 11 to 18. Our historic 500 acre campus in Hertfordshire is just 20 miles north of London. 

Heathrow, Stansted and Luton airports are all within easy reach of Haileybury with rail links to central London. Gatwick airport is only slightly further away. There are two railway stations close to Haileybury: Hertford North and Broxbourne both with trains to London.

Academic opportunity

Haileybury is a learning community, aspiring to foster in pupils and teachers alike a love of learning and a desire always to explore new boundaries and ideas.

We offer a dedicated Lower School for Years 7 and 8, a wide range of GCSE and IGCSEs, and the choice of the International Baccalaureate Diploma or A Levels in Sixth Form.

Haileybury is a top IB school (rated 12th in The Times’ 2015 IB League Table) and 72nd in the Daily Telegraph's 2015 Independent School A Level results table.  It is our aim that every pupil on leaving after Sixth Form will go on to study at their first choice university.

Supportive environment

Haileybury offers every pupil a stimulating, secure and caring environment. For those who come here, Haileybury is like a home-from-home. Key to this is our boarding House system, with pupils staying with the same House from Year 9 through to Sixth Form. It is within our 13 Houses that pupils build bonds for life, sharing challenges and successes in an atmosphere of strong mutual support.

Come and explore what we have to offer

We understand how important it is to find the right school for your child. That is why we meet and talk to each and every child, so we can feel sure that they will flourish at Haileybury and enjoy being a member of our happy and vibrant community. Open mornings are an ideal opportunity to explore what we have to offer and to meet the individuals who make Haileybury such a wonderful place to be – our pupils. They will give you a true insight into life at Haileybury as they take you on a guided tour of our lovely campus. Our subject heads and senior staff will also be present to answer any specific questions you may have. In addition, we can arrange individual appointments which are tailored to your child’s needs and their particular interests. We look forward to welcoming you to Haileybury very soon.
