Prep to Year 4

Shaping New Attitudes to Learning

Haileybury’s Junior School students enjoy the best of everything from the outset: the best teachers, resources, facilities and curriculum. Our education program stimulates children to reach their potential. Boys and girls learn how to care, listen, take turns and concentrate. They are encouraged to make decisions, become self-sufficient, answer questions, solve problems and work independently.

Literacy and Numeracy—the foundation stones of all learning at Haileybury—mark the beginning of a complete education from Prep through the Junior School. They are delivered through Haileybury’s Explicit Instruction model and our results show that Haileybury students develop faster than their peers.  Skills are taught in depth with an emphasis on application through problem solving and higher order thinking skills. This development is managed through assessment, analysis of results and goal-setting, which provide a program of continuing improvement and intellectual challenge for each student.

Students build knowledge and skills across the areas of Wellbeing, Health, History and Geography through Explicit Inquiry units.  With our specialist teachers, children engage in Visual Arts, Music, Drama, Physical Education, Swimming, Communications and Digital Technologies (CDT), Library and Chinese (Mandarin).
