The Lower School is a fun place to learn and grow. Each classroom is a collaborative space where children respect and appreciate each other and those around them.

Lacy Chapman, Lower School Principal

After leaving university, Lacy worked for a few years as an actuary in an insurance company in California before entering the field of education. She earned her teaching credential and Masters Degree in Special Education at San Francisco State University, then taught at elementary, middle and high school levels in California. Lacy earned her Master’s Degree in School Administration from UC Berkeley. She has been a Principal at two elementary schools, before she moved to London in 1995. Lacy has worked in the ACS Lower School for the past 20 years and has loved watching the division grow and change to meet the rapidly changing needs of our students. She values the opportunity to share – with parents and teachers alike – her drive for shaping the lives of young students. Lacy champions the collaborative and supportive environment of the Lower School where students, teachers and parents are encouraged to embrace change and innovation in the pursuit of excellence.

We offer a developmentally challenging programme that is personalised to suit our different types of learners. Our curriculum is aligned to rigorous standards and framed by the principles of the Responsive Classroom – a philosophy of teaching and learning that emphasises our core values. 

Our highly qualified and experienced teachers and specialists use effective strategies to help students develop the skills, understanding, values and attitudes to realise success, both in school and in life. We take full advantage of our beautiful campus and all the outdoor opportunities it has to offer a young, enquiring mind. 

In close partnership with parents, we foster each child’s development in a secure, supportive and multi-cultural community. We aspire to see every child gain courage, optimism, and the resilience to dream big, and persist in the face of obstacles.

Our students come from all over the world. We are proud to equip them with the ability and self-confidence to begin shaping their own future.
