With UK campuses in Cobham, Egham and Hillingdon, and a fourth campus in Doha, Qatar, ACS provides an exceptional international education to over 3,200 students, aged 2 to 18, day and boarding, from more than 100 countries. It is the largest group of international schools in the UK and works with relocation professionals worldwide in order to support hundreds of inbound international families every year.

ACS’s range of education programmes include all four International Baccalaureate (IB) programmes, Advanced Placement courses and the US High School Diploma, providing students from the UK and across the world with an international education that is globally-recognised for excellence and highly-coveted by university admissions officers.

During COVID-19, the school group adapted its online offering in order to meet the varying needs of international families, including a swift transition to remote learning during lockdown and the introduction of a hybrid learning model when schools were permitted to reopen but many children were still required to isolate for short periods. ACS’s admissions teams are now interacting with prospective families in a variety of new, flexible ways, including virtual open days and 360-virtual tours, providing families with the opportunity to view the schools wherever they are in the world.

In addition to going above and beyond to support international families, ACS also regularly hosts relocation events for professionals working in the sector. Recent events have featured Morgan Crosby, Chief Strategy Officer, AIRINC and Leanne Harding, Head of Global Mobility, Deloitte who discussed the future of mobility, and experts from Deloitte, Edward Hannibal and Elizabeth Karcher, who discussed remote working and its ongoing impact.
