Fergus Rose, Advancement Director at ACS International Schools, commented:
“This is a very exciting time for ACS pupils and staff as this continued investment phase across all our UK campuses nears completion. The investment reflects our commitment to providing a full and future-focused education with cutting edge facilities for teaching and learning. Anyone interested in a world class international education for their child is invited to experience our world class facilities at our forthcoming open days in February and March.”
Our multi-million pound investment programme
ACS Hillingdon – a cutting-edge £10 million Science Centre, due for completion this May, incorporating seven student science and technology laboratories and a designated micro-biology unit. This latest investment is designed to enhance student and teacher collaboration in science learning, and encourage students to explore the realms of scientific research.
ACS Cobham – a new four-floor boarding accommodation will open in this September. The new Boarding House will provide an additional 113 students, aged 12 to 18, with a ‘home away from home’ including single en-suite bedrooms for all final year students. The £15 million project will also allow the school to increase its seven and five day boarding options, alongside its flexi-boarding offer. A muti-million pound refurbishment of the existing boarding facilities is also due to start later in the year.
ACS Cobham is also home to a multi-million pound Performing Arts Centre which was completed in 2015. The 509-seat auditorium is one of the only schools in the UK to have a professional fly tower which greatly extends production capabilities teaching students the very latest theatre production skills.
ACS Egham – a world class Woodlee Sports Centre designed with the latest sporting technology. ‘Gamebreaker’ video analysis which allows students to watch and perfect their technique in real time. The Centre also includes a dance studio, fitness suite, two competition size basketball courts and an indoor climbing wall. This year the school will see continued investment in student learning facilities and the on-going refurbishment of the school’s grounds, including the upgrading of access roads.
