About us

Founded in 1967 to serve the needs of global and local families, ACS International Schools educate over 3,700 students, aged 2 to 18, day and boarding, from more than 100 countries. Our schools in Hillingdon, Cobham, Egham and Doha offer a world-renowned curriculum.

The Cobham Campus is a modern learning environment set in stunning woodlands. In addition to the purpose-built Lower, Middle, and High School divisions, the school benefits from a multi-functional gym, a new Performing Arts Centre, an Olympic Sized swimming pool and 21st Century Interactive Learning Centre.

The Hillingdon Campus is centred around a stunning mansion house set in 13 acres. A modern wing extension has added libraries, science and IT labs, art studios, a cafeteria, a gym, an auditorium, and a dedicated music centre. The grounds incorporate an all-weather playing field, tennis and basketball courts, and adventure play areas.

The Egham Campus is set in beautifully landscaped grounds where history embraces modern learning. Significant investment has seen the recent additions of a DT and Art classroom block and a Sports Centre with Dance Studio.

Doha is the latest addition to the group and in September saw the opening of the school’s landmark campus in Al Kheesa with outstanding facilities and innovative learning spaces designed to accommodate 2,200 students.
