Excel in your learning and your sporting career

The demands of training, travelling and competing can be tough — but it is possible to excel in your studies alongside your sporting career as well. Haileybury Pangea offers a personalised approach to all students in Years 5-12, so you can have more choice over when, where and how you learn.

Meet Lily, a Haileybury Pangea student who recently graduated from Year 12. Lily began playing basketball at the age of six and that was the start of a lifelong passion for the sport. As Lily progressed with her basketball career it became apparent that she needed a flexible schooling model to help her meet the needs of both obtaining her VCE and partaking in her elite basketball program.

“For each subject there is only one lesson per week with homework clearly laid out and I can contact teachers outside of class times if I have any queries. I can attend training sessions and interstate events because I can access my class from any location.”
Lily, Haileybury Pangea student

Lily attended a local Secondary School with a condensed timetable that she rounded out by studying a VCE single subject via Haileybury Pangea. Studying single subjects at Haileybury Pangea allowed Lily to continue her high-quality education without sacrificing her sport.

Flexibility in your VCE

There are three ways you can choose to study your VCE at Haileybury Pangea, whether that’s full-time, part-time, or by completing single subjects — if that aligns more seamlessly with your sporting schedule. No matter which path you choose, you will receive real-time feedback from Haileybury Pangea’s brilliant teachers at every step, who specialise in online learning and are always on hand to help you thrive in your unique learning journey.

Year 5 Student

Meet Grace, a bright young gymnast, who has been competing since the age of two. Grace and her family made the decision to move to Haileybury Pangea as a full-time student so Grace could maintain her focus on her gymnastics while still completing her schooling.

The mix of live lessons and self-paced study allows Grace to plan her daily gym schedule around classes. Grace is very proud to be one of the founding members of Haileybury Pangea and hopes to be one of the first students to complete their full Years 5-12 schooling online.

“Because of gymnastics and the amount of hours that I do, Haileybury Pangea is very flexible around it and it makes it much easier to do both study and gymnastics.”
