Parallel Education

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.

Our Parallel Education Model is a key part of this approach, and delivers teaching and learning in a way that recognises the unique and changing social, emotional and educational needs of each and every student. While learning in separate classes, girls and boys share the same campus, allowing them to socialise and enjoy co-curricular activities together.


Separated coeducation

Growing together in the social setting of a coeducational campus, girls and boys are separated into single-sex classrooms through significant developmental stages of their school journey. This ‘separated coeducation’ helps guide each student’s learning experience in line with and in support of their personal maturity level.

The best of both worlds

The Parallel Education Model provides the best of both worlds in one school: while learning in separate classes girls and boys share the same campus, allowing them to socialise and enjoy co-curricular activities together.

“A strong emphasis on high teacher quality and smaller class sizes contributes to Haileybury being consistently ranked among Australia’s top education institutions. We were named Australian School of the Year in 2018.”
