Haileybury, founded by Royal Charter, is one of Britain’s major independent schools. It is located just outside the town of Hertford, between London and Cambridge. It was opened as a boys’ school in 1862. In 1996 they had their first intake of female pupils and the school is now fully co-educational, with over 750 students during the academic year. The buildings surrounding the main quadrangle were built in 1806 by William Wilkins, the architect of the National Gallery in London. Originally constructed as a training college for Civil Servants of the East India Company, it was opened as a school in 1862. It stands in 350 acres of grounds surrounded by woodland, and is situated 25 miles north of London and 2 miles from the town of Hertford.

GENERAL ENGLISH COURSES
- The course is for students with at least one year of English study.
- Students are divided into two courses – Jets for 10-14 years and Sharks 14 – 17 years – and have 15 hours (20 lessons) of English classes per week.
- On arrival, you will have a written and oral test to place you on the right course at the appropriate level.
- Classes are small with a maximum of 16 students so the teachers really get to know you and can help you make the most progress possible.
- We focus on spoken and listening language skills to improve your confidence and fluency.
- Course materials and an end of course certificate are provided.

The course is continually adapted and improved within the following structure:
- For the first 2 x 50 minute lessons each day, students enjoy incorporating new elements of grammar and vocabulary into lessons that are designed to engage them with other students through dialogues, role plays, group work and presentations.
- We then have a 45 minute lesson on British Culture, providing the students with an insight into various aspects of UK life, while also preparing them for the excursions to places such as London, Cambridge and Windsor.
- For the final 45 minute lesson each day, the students are placed into theatre project groups, working together with their teachers to create an original play, which is then performed to the whole school at the end of the course.


We also offer Cambridge Exam Preparation Courses for junior students. More information at ENGLISH EXAM PREPARATION.
