Confederation of Almaty Schools and Headteachers

Founded in 2015 by Mr Craig Halsall, former Headmaster of Haileybury Almaty

Welcome to our website, which hopefully gives everyone a flavour of who we are and what we are trying to achieve.

Our organisation comprises a collection of schools in Almaty including local and international schools. The common aim amongst member schools is that we are committed to providing quality and equal opportunities for our pupils and staff to collaborate and compete within a culture of mutual respect, equality and fair play.

We recognise the opportunity that the unique context faced by all of our member schools. Whilst Almaty is a beautiful and developing city, the diverse nature of our schools, the population and their curricula, has not always benefitted from a collaborative network between schools.

We are focused on promoting opportunities for our pupils in the field of sports, arts, music, drama and social events for making new friends. We believe that that competition naturally creates winner and losers through results, believe participation based on fair play and within the spirit of excellent sportsmanship must always remain the highest priority.

We also aim to promote opportunities for collaboration and training between senior leaders and teachers in all schools. We believe that differences in curriculum between schools provide important opportunities for a wide range of staff training to the benefit of our learning community.

Participation. Fair Play. Respect.
