Welcome from our Head of School

Welcome to ACS Hillingdon, where innovation intertwines with history and students flourish in a warm, personal school environment. 

Discover how, in partnership with parents, we promote superior academic achievement, personal wellbeing, and a sense of global responsibility in every student. We’re proud of both our world-renowned academic programme and our commitment to visual arts, drama and music, all of which are an integral part of our curriculum, ensuring that our students are ready for whatever comes next in their lives. 

For over 30 years our school has championed a vibrant tapestry of cultures, languages and expectations. I hope you enjoy this glimpse into our world.

ACS Hillingdon is a beautiful green and welcoming campus close to Central London, bursting with innovation and enterprise.

It’s something our students live and breathe every day, as they’re supported by talented teachers who seamlessly integrate enquiry-based learning with technology in the classroom, whether your child is 4 or 18.

We’re home to nearly 600 students, aged 4 to 18, and 150 expert faculty and staff, representing over 50 nationalities. It’s this global outlook that informs our world-renowned curriculum, building on the very best of global and US education standards, which gives our students unprecedented flexibility to tailor their studies from a wide range of options.

Innovation is in our DNA and starts with our youngest students.

Our Lower School is proud to be an Apple Distinguished School, in recognition of its iPad learning programme which drives learning and autonomy from a young age. Some of our older students are building 3D printers. We offer IB Film studies and Visual Arts and even Japanese Literature. We have great facilities to support these activities, including a well-equipped Science Centre with seven new labs.

At ACS Hillingdon, we are really proud of our visual arts, drama, music and sport.
