Such success only comes after two years of focussed work by our pupils, and they have also been aided by the outstanding Haileybury community who offer support in so many different ways. Our pastoral system plays a key role in supporting and encouraging our young people, and the co-curricular provision allows them to contribute significantly outside of the classroom in sport, drama, music and activities like community service and Model United Nations.”Haileybury has been teaching the IB Diploma for nearly 20 years and is one of the leading IB schools in the UK.
