About Haileybury

Haileybury is a leading co-educational school which offers modern boarding and day provision for pupils aged 11-18.

The school was established in 1862 and is situated on a beautiful 500 acre campus just 20 miles north of London. At Haileybury, we encourage academic excellence and promote intellectual curiosity. We believe in the merits of an all-round education with a strong co-curricular provision.

Underpinning every child’s education is outstanding pastoral care. Our pupils learn the value of community. They experience leadership and they learn to work as part of a team.

A Haileybury education is open-minded and forward-looking but it also draws on our rich heritage. It provides our pupils with a moral compass. It prepares them for the very best universities and for the world of work.

Model United Nations at Haileybury

One of the great strengths of MUN at Haileybury is that it is pupil-led, with Sixth Formers taking the lead in running weekly sessions, and playing a key role in organising our own annual MUN conference. In March each year, Haileybury welcomes around 700 visitors from all over the world to HMUN, which is one of the largest of its type in the country.

Each year around 200 Haileybury pupils are involved in the conference, not only as delegates, but also in writing the agenda, chairing committees, presiding over the General Assembly, and helping in all sorts of ways to enable the conference to run smoothly.
