Haileybury College is the largest school in Victoria with student enrolments in excess of 3,200 and is one the most expensive independent schools in Victoria with tuition fees ranging between $9,962 and $19,236 (Pre-Prep to Year 12).[1] Haileybury maintains strong relations with schools in China, Japan and France, and currently delivers the VCE program to a number of schools in China.

Haileybury also has the widest sports curriculum in Victoria, and is a member of the Associated Public Schools of Victoria (APS). In 2006 Haileybury won APS premierships in Table Tennis, Touch Football, Swimming, Diving, Cricket (3 consecutive years), Football (3 consecutive years) and Soccer (2 consecutive years).

Also in 2006 Haileybury won the Victorian Statewide Maths Competition defeating all other Victorian schools competing, in the Years 10 and 11 divisions. In 2006 Haileybury students produced 3 High Distinction prizes in the Pricewaterhouse Coopers Australian Business Studies and Economics Competition.

History

The school began with just 17 pupils on 10 February 1892 at 'Wellington' on the corner of New Street and South Road, Brighton Beach.

The first headmaster, Mr C H Rendall, an old boy of Haileybury College, England, adapted the buildings and grounds of 'Wellington' to educational purposes and enthusiastically undertook his chosen task of building in Australia an English public school with a distinctive tradition of classics and cricket.

In 1999 Haileybury admitted the first girls into the Junior School and plans were announced to develop parallel education for boys and girls from year 5 on all campuses. The following year saw the introduction of an innovative pre-senior program for boys in year 9, allowing the boys, who begin to lose interest in traditional studies to broaden their horizon and participate in a number of Options (10 day camps).

In 2006, The Age newspaper published stories regarding a campaign by Haileybury Girls College to offer scholarships to girls in schools across Melbourne in order to fill its 2007 classes in Years 10 to 12. Schools including Toorak College, Sacre Coeur, St. Margarets College, and Mac.Robertson Girls' High School had students leave to attend Haileybury College The campaign was criticised by these schools, with two Catholic girls' schools - Killester and Kilbreda Colleges - vowing to submit a formal complaint to the Uniting Church, with which the school is affiliated.[2]. It has also been alleged that Haileybury has been "unethically" hiring teachers from other schools. [3]

Students

Students attending Haileybury College come from all over Melbourne with 97% of all students travelling on school buses to get to the college. The school has the largest bus network system compared to any other school in Australia. Haileybury students generally arrive from Brighton and its neighbouring suburbs, Wheelers Hill/Glen Waverley, Malvern and its neighbouring suburbs, the Peninsula(Mount Eliza, Mornington etc) and Berwick as well as various other localities across Melbourne.

Edrington Campus
Castlefield was where Haileybury began. Founded in 1892, Haileybury in Brighton quickly grew and by 1931 a new location was sought. Haileybury moved to its current location at South Road, and in 1932 classes began at which is now the Castlefield campus. Today, Castlefield caters for approximately 500 students from the Early Learning Centre to Year 9.

Students travel to the Senior School at Keysborough for Years 10 to 12. However, plans are underway to reopen the Senior School for boys and girls at Castlefield in 2008.

As part of Haileybury's Parallel Education, co-instructional classes operate for boys and girls in Castlefield's ELC and Junior School. Alongside the boys Middle School, Haileybury Girls College opened its Middle School to Years 7 and 8 in 2005. In 2006 the new Girl's Pre-Senior centre was opened.

Senior School/Newlands (Keysborough)

In 1962 it became clear that the current location at South Road was no longer large enough to accommodate the growing number of students, and the decision was made to establish a senior school at Keysborough. Keysborough is now home to two teaching precincts- the senior school, catering for students in years 10 to 12, and Newlands, catering for students from the Early Learning Centre to Year 9. The Keysborough location was chosen to provide extensive new facilities as Melbourne's population moved to the south east. The Senior School was established first and Newlands opened in 1976. Today, Newlands has approximately 820 students and Senior School has approximately 900 students. As part of Haileybury's Parallel Education, co-instructional classes operate for boys and girls in Newlands' ELC and Junior School. The Middle School and Pre-Senior centre currently operate for both boys and girls while the Senior School currently operates for boys. Newlands and the Senior School run independently from each other, however many staff, facilities and equipment are shared between the two. Facilities such as the Grenda Aquatic Center, Aikman Hall and Berthon Hall are used by students from all campuses.

Edrington (Berwick)

In 1989 the school council made the decision to establish a third campus in the rapidly growing suburb of Berwick. A bright, modern school, the Berwick Campus is located on part of the original Edrington property, owned by the Casey family, and came into prominence when Lord Casey of Berwick became Governor General of Australia. In 2000, girls started at Haileybury, Edrington.

Edrington caters for approximately 450 students from the ELC to Year 9. Students travel to the Senior School at Keysborough for Years 10 to 12. However, plans are underway to open the Senior School for boys and girls at Edrington in 2008.

As part of Haileybury's Parallel Education, co-instructional classes operate for boys and girls in Edrington's ELC and Junior School. The Middle School and Pre-Senior Centres operate for both boys and girls. The Pre-Senior Centre opened for boys in 2000 and girls in 2006.

Academic program

Parallel Education

Parallel Education is a unique concept founded by the late Dr. Robert J. Pargetter, principal of Haileybury from 1999-2007. Boys and girls are educated at the same school and are allowed to interact at any time with the exception of during class times. Only single gender classes are permitted at Haileybury College with boys and girls attending classes with their own gender type. The idea is one which is quiet different to the traditional Haileybury approach to education founded over a 150 years ago at Haileybury England which believed that girls and boys should not be mixed in the same schooling environment. The reason behind the change to the school system is to make the school environment reflect the environment in which the student will one day work in with both sexes.

Senior School

Students at Senior School undertake a three year VCE program and can choose from over 80 different VCE and Vocational Education and Training (VET) subjects. Haileybury is well known for its brilliant results, with more than 30% of students ranking in the top 5% of Australia and more than 95% in the top 50% of Australia. In the Senior School class sizes are capped at 15 for Unit 3 & 4 subject, with an average class size of 11. The Haileybury Senior School Program also differs from other traditional schools in offering a 30 Week teaching program rather than the traditional 24-25 week program, in order to achieve this longer program students will begin the 2007 academic year from October 2006. From 2007 students will be able to choose the International Baccalaureate as part of their VCE studies.

Pre-Senior

The Pre-Senior Program is for students in Year 9 and is a program that includes a special emphasis on literacy and numeracy. Alongside English and Mathematics a diverse range of subjects are offered including, science, Japanese, French, Social Science, English Language, Drama, Art and History. One notable difference between the Pre-Senior program and the programs at Senior School and the Middle School is the teaching of Geography, which is taught out of the classroom in special programs. Students in Pre-Senior are required to complete a geography assignment based on the geographical area in which their Pre-Senior options were based. Students in the Pre-Senior program also have the opportunity to commence VCE and VET studies, with VET Information Technology and VCE Health and Human Development and Religion and Society offered. Students from Year 9 at Castlefield and Edrington actually use their building allocated for them at these two campuses rarely, as every Thursday they travel to Newlands on the Senior School/Newlands buses and for 30 days of the school year they are on their chosen options.

Middle School

A key focus of the Middle School academic program is on areas such as thinking, problem solving and communication. The curriculum includes explicit tasks related to skils such as 'working as a team'. Another key focus of the academic program is Health and Development, as well as Social Education.

Junior School

The core component of the Junior School program is literacy and numeracy, as well as a focus on Information Technology, Communication and Development.

Extra-curricular program

Haileybury offers students a wide range of sporting, musical and academic extra-curricular activities to participate.

House system and pastoral care

The house system at Haileybury plays an integral part of student life. Most students will belong to two houses during their time at Haileybury, one at the Junior Campuses and one at the Senior School, Students in the Pre-Senior program are not part of the house system, however most students consider themselves to still belong to their houses at their respective Junior Campus.

Senior School

At the Senior School there are eight houses, in which students are allocated according to where they live, unlike at the Junior School. Another notable difference between the houses at the Senior School and the Junior Campuses, is that at the Senior School there are separate houses for Haileybury College and Haileybury Girls College, the Houses at the Senior School are;

Matters can then be escalated to the Head of House, the school chaplain, or other specific advisors including careers advice, heads of department or campus.

There are numerous activities between houses, including sporting competitions for all common sports, debating, puzzles and chess and a chorale competition, the houses at the Senior School compete for the Thomason Shield.
