In Senior School, every pupil is in a tutor group that also reflects the house they are in. Pupils’ first point of contact will usually be their Tutor, and they can also turn to their House Master or any subject teacher for advice and support. If you have concerns about your child’s learning, then you should discuss these with their class tutor, but you too can also speak to their House Master or any of their subject teachers. Your child’s Tutor and House Master have the interests and well-being of their pupils at the top of their priority list, but also the academic success. There are parent-teacher conferences plus other special events throughout the year, giving parents an opportunity to speak with teachers, but if further information or conversations are needed, then teachers are very happy to organize additional meetings.

Every pupil at Haileybury Bhaluka is a part of one of the Houses within the school. Our pupils and teachers are very passionate about their houses, and healthy competition is established between Houses through school sports, performing arts, and academic competitions. You know when the children have taken part because they’ll be especially excited on those days.
In the Senior School, Housemasters look after the pastoral care of pupils and the Houses are supported by a team of Tutors who meet with their pupils every day. The four Houses provide smaller communities within the school and facilitate pupils’ identification with staff and other pupils in their house throughout the school.
