Senior School

Senior School

A very warm welcome to the Senior School, which is comprised of Key Stages 3, 4 and 5 (pupils aged 11 to 18 years).

Like the rest of the school, our mission is to provide our community with an educational experience which enables our pupils to fulfil their potential academically, physically, culturally and socially within a global and future context.

We aim to do this through fostering in our pupils the ‘Haileybury Habits’; helping our pupils to be resilient, resourceful, courageous, inquisitive, organized, and reflective in all that they do.

We expect high standards of academic endeavour and seek to develop pupils holistically. We do this through a balanced and challenging curriculum, complemented by excellent pastoral care.

We follow the Haileybury Curriculum in Years 7-9, which incorporates the best curricula, both from the UK and internationally, the IGCSE Programme in Years 10-11, and IBDP in Years 12 and 13.

Year 7 to Year 9 (ages 11-14 years)

Year 7 to Year 9 is an extremely important stage in a pupil’s academic and social development. Year 7 pupils transition from being a Junior to a Senior School pupil; which see significant changes to their timetable, curriculum, and teachers.

Our broad timetable focuses on developing successful values and positive attitudes to support our pupils

With over 20 Co-Curricular Activities on offer for Year 7 to Year 9 alone, coupled with chances for developing their leadership skills via our ever-growing Pupil Council, there are many opportunities for pupils to immerse themselves in the wider school life.

Year 7 to Year 9 pupils demonstrate impressive levels of enthusiasm, intelligence and maturity, which allows them to flourish into well-rounded and educated young adults.

Within the Haileybury curriculum, the following subjects are compulsory: English, mathematics, science, history, geography, modern foreign language, history, art, music, physical education, personal development and computer science.
