Astana opened on 31 August 2011, providing education for boys and girls

Auster, Headmaster. The school follows the UK National Curriculum, with
the addition of lessons in Kazakh language, history and geography and
Russian. Bar languages, all teaching is conducted in English. The pupils
are drawn from all sectors of the city, with many nationalities

and age of the pupils, adding a year group until provision is made for
pupils up to the age of eighteen. Boarding facilities are planned to
