Haileybury Almaty reached maturity as a school in 2012, as we welcomed students into our first ever Year 13 classes. The school now has a thriving Sixth Form section which is growing each year. Our Sixth Form students follow the A-Level programme of study, a two year course, which typically provides 3 or 4 internationally recognised qualifications which allow access to the world's top universities including those in the United Kingdom and the United States. A-Levels enable students to study subjects in depth. A-Levels are demanding in terms of their content and the high level of analytical skills required to succeed.

Focused independent learning and effective time management helps to develop the self-motivation and organisational skills that they will need to succeed at university.
