2017 will herald the completion of a series of multi-million-pound major investment projects across ACS Internationals Schools’ three UK campuses in Surrey and Greater London.
The decade-long investment programme has included the creation of a state-of-the-art Sports Centre at ACS Egham, a brand new Performing Arts Centre at ACS Cobham and, due for completion this summer, a new boarding house at ACS Cobham and £10m Science wing at ACS Hillingdon.
The investment reflects our commitment to providing a full and future-focused education with cutting edge facilities for teaching and learning – Fergus Rose, Advancement Director at ACS International Schools
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.”
‘Cutting edge’ new facilities
A £10 million Science Centre, due for completion this May, incorporates seven student science and technology laboratories and a designated micro-biology unit.
A new four-floor boarding accommodation will open 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 multi-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.
The Woodlee Sports Centre has been designed with the latest sporting technology. ‘Gamebreaker’ video analysis 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 ongoing refurbishment of the school’s grounds, including the upgrading of access roads.
