Haileybury and Imperial Service College (usually shortened to Haileybury), is an independent school founded in 1862 at Hertford Heath, Hertfordshire, in 500 acres of parkland occupied until 1858 by the East India College. The principal architect, William Wilkins, also designed the National Gallery in London, and Downing College, Cambridge. The school is built around four ranges which enclose an area known as Quad, the largest academic quadrangle in the UK and one of the largest in the world. By Gertrude Ellen Hayes (b.1872), who married Alfred Kedington. Both were art tutors at Rugby School.
