Welcome to Middle School at ACS Hillingdon

Ages 10 - 14 | Grades 5 to 8

The environment we create is personal and positive – designed to stimulate curiosity and a love of knowledge.

We celebrate this dynamic age group as they transition from childhood into their teenage years. All our students are actively engaged in a balanced educational programme, delivered by an attentive and dedicated faculty.

The environment we create is personal and positive - designed to stimulate curiosity and a love of knowledge. Middle School incorporates an academic programme that inspires students to be knowledgeable but also curious, confident and risk-takers, with an extra curricular programme that goes well beyond the classroom. Students are involved in a substantial range of co-curricular activities and are motivate to participate and excel in many sports.

Theirs is a world of opportunity, and we never tire of opening doors.

Here in Middle School, we take pride in our tremendous sense of community. I witness this every day while interacting with students, parents, and faculty.

What subjects to expect

Students at our school take advantage of a curriculum that emphasises intellectual challenge and encourages them to make connections between their learning and the real world. It is our aim to empower students with the skills necessary for communication, intercultural understanding, and global engagement. Exceptional IT integration, facilities, and extra-curricular opportunities complete a total school experience where life-changing opportunities really make a difference.

It is an honour to work with such a dynamic international student body – one that consistently rises to the daily challenge of meeting high academic expectations.

Our programme extends well beyond the classroom. Students here are involved in a substantial range of co-curricular activities, and are motivated to participate and excel in many sports. We value experiential learning, and take full advantage of our location by incorporating important sites and venues into our curriculum wherever possible. We empower students to develop the skills they will need to be successful.
