About Haileybury

Acclaimed as a great private school, Haileybury is a uniquely rewarding educational experience. Through our focus on brilliant teaching and learning, students can discover more, achieve more and become more.

Haileybury has been endorsed as one of Australia’s best schools with multiple awards from the Australian Education Awards, including Australian School of the Year, Primary School of the Year, Principal of the Year, Best Student Wellbeing and Best Remote Learning. Haileybury has also been ranked as the number one coeducational primary school in Victoria and the number two secondary school, based on national testing results.

At Haileybury we use that motto that ‘Every student matters every day’. Learning starts at an early age through flexible and creative programs in our Early Learning Centres. Core literacy and numeracy skills are developed through the use of explicit instruction in the Junior Years.

In the Middle Years a combination of explicit instruction and student-centred learning is used to broaden analytical thinking and problem solving. An exciting Year 9 development program provides opportunities for students to establish independence and resilience. The three-year VCE Program in the Senior Years, coupled with a wide range of available subject choices, ensures there are programs to suit all students' interests and abilities.

Our academic programs are enhanced by Haileybury's commitment to a strong social and personal wellbeing education program that focuses on fulfilling potential, supporting individual resilience and the development of personal character values. Haileybury believes in the principles of social justice, respect for oneself and others and is committed to developing our students accordingly. We are resolutely committed to a strong Respectful Relationships and Consent agenda.

Parallel Education

Our Parallel Education Model delivers teaching and learning in a way that recognises the unique and changing social, emotional and educational needs of each and every student.

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 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.

From ELC to Year 4 students learn in co-education classes before moving to the Girls or Boys Middle School for Years 5 to 12.

Education Excellence

Haileybury has been endorsed as one of Australia’s best schools, with multiple awards from the Australian Education Awards. Our approach has achieved national recognition and received a host of respected awards – the results of a unique combination of innovation, unrivalled educators and extraordinary results. Over the past 5 years Haileybury has been awarded Australian School of the Year, Primary School of the Year (non-Government) Australian School Principal of the Year, No.1 Ranked Co-education Primary School, Best Remote Learning Program, Best Wellbeing Program and Department Head of the Year.

Academic Success

Haileybury is acclaimed as an outstanding independent school in Australia and overseas because of a unique combination of factors that deliver more than the sum of their parts: innovative teaching methods, brilliant teachers, outstanding academic results, a strong international focus and a comprehensive understanding of education that stretches back to 1892.

Our academic efforts in the National Assessment Program – Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) continue to deliver outstanding collective results, and rank us in the top 0.5% of schools in Australia.

Our VCE results consistently see over half our students place in the top 10% of Australia with an ATAR of 90 and above. In recent years the School has seen record breaking results, with consistently high numbers of perfect Study Scores of 50 achieved in a range of subjects. In 2021, eight students achieved the highest possible ATAR of 99.95 placing them in the top 0.05% of students in the country.

Explicit Teaching Model

Our innovative Explicit Teaching Model provides the best possible start for all Haileybury Junior School students, helping them engage with and master the core skills of literacy and numeracy. This research-based approach is supported with instruction in thinking and problem-solving and allows our younger students to thrive in all subject areas.
