Partnering with 8 schools across the country, 200 graduates are finishing each year in the VCE China Program. As Haileybury brings Australian Secondary Education to China, it is the largest provider in its field. Haileybury has experienced several controversies over the years, including complaints of Haileybury poaching top pupils from other schools with financial incentives, and anger from parents and former students over the school's involvement in a controversial television comedy - Chris Lilley's Ja'mie: Private School Girl.
Ja'mie: Private School Girl - The Haileybury Institute - Netflix
In mid-December 2012 articles about Haileybury’s Explicit Teaching Model, driven by Deputy Principal John Fleming, appeared in The Australian newspaper. Haileybury’s Deputy Principal John Fleming spends four weeks of each term travelling Australia, coaching teachers in using strategies to improve students’ skills. Under the banner of The Haileybury Institute, John Fleming has helped more than 100 schools from all corners of the country and the results have been outstanding. “The first thing I say to schools is we’re aiming to be among the best schools in Australia, we’re not aiming for national minimum benchmarks,” “We remove all the excuses. Many schools will tell you: ‘But we have indigenous kids, or we have transient kids, or disadvantaged kids’. You quickly get rid of that.” John Fleming stated. The program is delivered to hundreds of schools across Australia. “We felt we had something that was best practice in education and there was an opportunity to share it with schools around Australia” stated Principal, Derek Scott. Prominent Social Commentator and Indigenous Leader, Noel Pearson noted in his article in The Australian that Fleming supports school reform across the nation through The Haileybury Institute. This program closely fits with Haileybury’s extensive Social Justice Program. Many of the schools who participate in John’s program are assisted on a pro-bono basis, with education departments helping to cover the costs.
