Experience truly international boarding
As part of an increasingly mobile world, the ACS Cobham 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.
Expert residential house parents and nurse ensure our students have the constant support, guidance, and care to be happy, inspired, and ready to make their mark on the world. 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. A multi-million pound refurbishment of the existing boarding house Fields is now complete and features a new walk-in medical centre with a fully-trained medical team.
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.
We understand the importance of providing a balanced and full school life, which is why weekend trips are integreted into the annual schedule, and run every weekend throughout each semester.
Our aim here is to ensure teachers and parents work closer together to better progress each child's academic and social development through the sharing of information, concerns, hopes, and plans.
Our new senior boarding house, for students aged 16-18, opened in 2017. It provides world-class accommodation for 113 students, with separate areas for boys and girls. Grade 11 students all share substantial twin ensuite rooms, while every Grade 12 student has their own single ensuite room with study area.
The contemporary design and layout of Woodlands house extends over four floors with high levels of natural light and ventilation, and commanding views across our campus. There is a triple-height atrium, multiple social areas, kitchenettes, lounges and study areas, and extensive landscaped areas and a BBQ.
