Experience truly international boarding

As part of an increasingly mobile world, the ACS Boarding House has established itself as a genuine champion of internationalism, with students representing more than 30 countries. We are proud of our multicultural identity, and celebrate the things that make us different as an integral part of boarding life.

We see student achievement as an individual goal. Academic success in the renowned International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) and Advanced Placement (AP) ensures our boarders can attend the university of their choice anywhere in the world. Success in sports, the performing and creative arts, in leadership, growth and responsibility empowers all to become well-rounded and well-grounded individuals.

Our outstanding residency sits within a secure, thriving, 128-acre campus full of study, creative, and recreational facilities. ­We are surrounded by beautiful countryside, only minutes from the cultural, historic and dynamic attractions of London, and on the doorstep of major airports into Europe and the world beyond.

Our resident House Parents, identify and promote each student’s learning skills, monitor and guide academic progress, and deal promptly and sympathetically with any personal situation that may arise. All our students feel respected as individuals, and our expert staff actively support their personal, social, and educational development. Our team is strengthened by resident teacher/advisors, the Boarding Nurse, a School Counsellor, and our student Peer Group.

I was worried about boarding school as I'm quite shy, but everyone made me feel so welcome straight away. I love it here.

We have our own athletics track, golf course, 6 soccer pitches, rugby pitches, swimming pool, weight training facility and three different gymnasiums. Its an amazing school.
