Why Haileybury

Haileybury students are able to flourish because of the strong teaching and developmental framework we have in place. Innovative teaching methods and a firm focus on academic excellence inspire classroom learning, while a safe and supportive learning environment and strong community ethos help every student build confidence, connection and a strong sense of place.

The recognition that Haileybury receives for its educational programs forms a key part of this approach: although not a reason for the education we provide, such acknowledgement offers proof that what we do is respected and successful.


Strongly endorsed

Haileybury has been endorsed as one of Australia’s best schools, achieving national recognition and multiple awards as a result of our unique combination of innovation, unrivalled educators and extraordinary results. National frameworks and organisations continue to share in our mission to develop high-achieving, globally connected students.
