Providing a dynamic mix of co-curricular experiences is an essential part of our programme

Through participation, students develop as individuals, and discover interests that can last a lifetime. There is something for everyone at any age, including cultural visits, outdoor learning, languages, science, information technology, cooking, sports, street dance, theatre arts, environmental projects, national awards such as the Duke of Edinburgh Award, and residential trips both within the UK and Europe.

Our commitment to educating the whole student remains paramount. We encourage all to be adventurous and open to trying new things, as success beyond the classroom is just as important as success within. The division-specific lists below provide an example of the activities on offer, and are constantly updated to accommodate demand.

Native Language Enrichment (NLE)

Native Language Enrichment (NLE)

At ACS Hillingdon International School, we recognise the important role of a student’s first language in enhancing second language acquisition, cognitive growth and overall wellbeing. For this reason, we host a Native Language Enrichment Programme organised and offered by our school to further students’ proficiency and development in their native language and culture. The NLE programme meets once per week for 45 minutes and is offered complimentary by the school.
