Facilites for our Goalkeepers


Haileybury is home to a number of elite sporting facilities, including as many as 15 grass football pitches. Our Keepers will get to experience training like a professional on the carpet-like grass.

Haileybury has a close relationship with Tottenham Hotspur & reguarly runs sessions with coaches & scouts from the club.


Our Keepers will get to train like professionals during The Nationals. So after many of the sessions, we'll be guiding them through recovery sessions using other facilities at Haileybury, including the swimming pool.

This not only helps with the rigours of training at The Nationals & injury prevention, but also valuable education on sports science & recovery in their future careers.


The Nationals will take over a few of the 13 houses at Haileybury. Rooms are kept to high standards & comfortable, with 2,3 or 4 people to a room.

Girls & boys houses are kept separate with separate shared facilities


Like everything else at Haileybury, the food is of high-quality. Our keepers will get a wide-range of choice for breakfast, lunch and dinner, with nutritious options to fuel their week of training.

Haileybury can cater for any dietry needs & take great care in food safety & labelling.
