Haileybury is one of the top private schools in Melbourne, with campuses in Keysborough, Brighton, Berwick, Melbourne CBD and Beijing (China).
Haileybury is acclaimed as a great school. The acclaim stems from our highly successful parallel education model, outstanding teachers, small class sizes, an unmatched level of individual attention, outstanding academic results, a strong international focus and 125 years of history.
A private school that began with 17 students in 1892 has now grown to a school of over 4,000, making it the largest school in the country.
Haileybury embodies the philosophy of every student matters every day and that every stage of schooling is equally important. Haileybury strives to develop resilient, independent learners in an environment that is memorable and a joy for each child to attend. We nurture and care about the safety of our students and reward both excellence in outcomes and in effort.
As one of Melbourne’s top private schools, Haileybury aspires to a lifetime love of learning. The School is a learning community of partnerships, both within and outside of the school. Through small classes the School is able to support individual learning and enable a strong focus on core skills such as literacy, numeracy, analytic thinking and reasoning skills. In the Senior School, small classes combined with a breadth of subject choices enable students to develop their skills through regular feedback during class.
Our Parallel Education Model is an enlightened method of learning and teaching that recognises the diverse educational needs of boys and girls. Early Learning Centre and Junior School classes are co-instructional whilst Middle School and Pre-Senior classes are separate for girls and boys. Senior School classes are also separate for boys and girls except for where co-instructional learning is advantageous.
It’s not just Haileybury’s programs, teachers and facilities that draw praise – more importantly, it’s our students.
The School’s academic results consistently rank us amongst the top private schools in Melbourne and the country. Following the outstanding NAPLAN results in 2013, which saw Haileybury ranked as the number one independent private primary school for girls and boys in Australia, the School’s 2015 NAPLAN results recorded the best outcomes in the eight-year history of the program. Exceptional results were also achieved in the 2015 VCE Results, which saw 44% of all students ranked in the top 10% of the country with an ATAR of 90 or above.
