Lisa Blair, High School Principal

Born and brought up in East Kent, Lisa attended Grammar School in Dover and took her Bachelor’s degree in English and History at the University of Kent at Canterbury, followed by a postgraduate Diploma in Medieval and Tudor Studies. She taught both English and History at Grammar Schools in Kent, serving in a variety of senior roles and pioneering the IB Diploma programme to run alongside the traditional sixth-form curriculum. In 2011, she took advantage of her husband’s early retirement to move into the international sector, spending three years in Prague, a year in Rome and latterly three years in Portugal before joining ACS, working in roles such as Director of Studies, IB Coordinator, Assistant Principal and Head of Senior School while maintaining a strong classroom profile and serving also as an IB examiner. Lisa is a vigorous advocate for student-centred learning and a promoter of curriculum development. Her two youngest children, who have moved with her through a series of international schools, are now at ACS Hillingdon in Grades 8 and 11.

Together we continuously boost our school spirit, enhance our personal relationships, and routinely pause to applaud our social and academic achievements.

High School is a critical and often challenging time for students as they find the necessary skills to build their own personal future. As an administration of expert teachers, counsellors, and support staff, we guide and support our students each step of the way.

Our school offers rigorous academic choice in the renowned:

  • International Baccalaureate Diploma Programmes (IBDP)
  • Advanced Placement (AP) courses
  • A US High School Diploma
  • Honours programme.

We bring high expectations and academic purpose to each of these choices, enabling every student to feel success as a personal achievement.
