Welcome to Haileybury Elite School. Haileybury is committed to providing Chinese students with a world-class education. Haileybury sets high expectations of its students and helps them develop independent learning skills and a strong personal character. Upon graduating from Haileybury students will be provided with the best pathways to top-tier universities abroad.

Haileybury College was founded in 1892 in Melbourne, Australia. The school has been acclaimed for its successful educational philosophy and outstanding academic achievement. In 2014, we were ranked the No.1 primary school and No.2 secondary school in Australia. Every year, more than 80% of our graduates go to “Group of Eight” universities. Haileybury is a model of high quality education in Australia.

Haileybury has successfully delivered the VCE to Chinese students in China since 2002. Haileybury’s partner schools are located in over 10 cities across the country, and it has successfully helped many hundreds of Chinese students to enter western universities. In November 2014, Australia Prime Minister Tony Abbott announced Haileybury as a finalist in the Australia-China Achievement Awards during his speech at the Parliament House Dinner for Chinese President Xi Jinping, for Haileybury’s ground breaking work in taking Australian secondary education to China.

In China, Haileybury International School is the first sister school of Haileybury College. Even though it is located ten thousand kilometers away from the Australian campus, its education is not far from there at all. Not only does it share Haileybury’s high quality educational resources, but it also inherits the spirit of Haileybury – hard work with a light heart.
