The school supports gifted, able and talented students

At Haileybury Astana we are committed to meeting the educational needs of all our pupils by providing an environment which encourages pupils to maximise their potential and develop their talents and abilities to the full. In providing for our more able students we aim to:

- Provide an environment for the most able learners to be challenged, to test their limits and be able to accommodate both success and failure in a climate of support;
- Encourage all students to become confident, independent learners;
- Enable pupils to access learning opportunities both inside and outside the classroom which will further stimulate their creativity and passion for learning;
- Create an ethos where academic excellence is celebrated as the norm, so those who are able, gifted and talented feel at ease and confident.

Each year teachers identify and update an able, gifted and talented register of pupils who show a particular ability, gift or talent within their curriculum area or across a range of skills.

Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

We are very fortunate to have outstanding buildings in the heart of Nur-Sultan, but what we think makes us remarkable is the people: we challenge you to find a school where the students are more engaged and polite than they are here. A Haileybury education is based on the values of Haileybury UK near London (one of England’s leading boarding schools).
