Founded in 1967 to serve the needs of international and local families, ACS International Schools now educates 2,500 students aged between 2 and 18, from more than 70 countries, at three London area campuses in England. All the schools are non-sectarian and co-educational.

The success of the programme at ACS Cobham is based on teamwork, collaboration, and the broad participation of its international community. All students are treated as unique individuals, with equal potential to make a positive contribution to the school. The goal is to instill an enthusiasm for lifelong learning and a sense of global awareness in each student, along with the necessary skills to prepare them for the challenges and changes which lie ahead.

The academic programme offers both the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma and Advanced Placement (AP) courses, creating a curriculum that meets the needs of a broad international student body. ACS graduates have established a tradition of attaining excellent exam results, enabling them to continue their studies at top universities around the world, including the US and UK.

Situated on 128-acres approximately 30 minutes by train from Central London, ACS Cobham enrolls 1,300 students. Facilities include an Early Childhood village; purpose-built Lower, Middle, and High School buildings; gymnasium and cafeteria complex and a Dormitory. All Lower, Middle and High School buildings have separate classrooms, science labs, libraries, computer labs, art and music studios and a recently opened Interactive Learning Centre.

ACS Cobham offers extensive and varied extracurricular clubs and community service activities both locally and internationally, which encourage students to participate in the richness of school life. Students also participate in international theatre arts programmes, maths, literature and music competitions in the UK and across Europe.

The campus sports programme runs three seasons fielding teams in soccer, volleyball, cross-country, basketball, rugby, swimming, dance, tennis, track & field, baseball, softball and golf. Sports facilities include six tennis courts, an Olympic-sized track, playing fields for soccer, rugby and baseball, a six-hole golf course, and a state-of-the-art Sports Centre with 25-metre competition indoor swimming pool, basketball/volleyball show courts, dance and fitness studios, and a café

The Dormitory provides a home-away-from-home for 110 students, aged 12-18. Boarders share ergonomically designed two-person rooms with ensuite facilities and internet connections; there are student lounges, kitchens, computer and study rooms. Six full-time Dormitory houseparents and over ten resident teaching staff ensure an active yet well-considered programme of pastoral care, friendship and advisor groups, house activities and weekend trips.
