What says..

Space and trees - what luxury for a school so very near to London. The old buildings lend character and style, but the new buildings provide fabulous facilities. The usual wide range of countries represented, but this is the most English of the three ACS schools in the UK because it only does IB, rather than the American curriculum, and so has a stable core of students who are wedded to this. Students are ‘taught to think’ and parents are pleased that children are ‘independent, organised, and it is up to the child to get their work done’...
