Around Our Campus in 80 seconds

Our vibrant, friendly, collaborative international community is one of the things our students and parents really value.

ACS Cobham is home to 1,300 students aged 2 to 18 representing over 80 nationalities, taught by 300 expert teachers and staff members.

Far more than just a school, ACS Cobham is a friendly, vibrant international community with a global outlook that guides our world-renowned curriculum. Based on global educational best practice, we offer a new kind of learning for a new kind of world citizen. Our goal is as simple as it is inspiring: to make our students ready for the challenges of tomorrow, so they thrive at every stage of their lives.

As you’d expect, our teaching and academic credentials are second to none. Our students are encouraged to tailor their studies to suit their talents and ambitions, while a wealth of outstanding support amenities help deliver a well-rounded educational experience. Equally important is our beautiful, leafy campus, just 30 minutes from central London. Our location offers students the best of both worlds – the stimulation of one of the world’s great cities, combined with the charms of the English countryside.

Unique amongst our four schools, ACS Cobham offers boarding (full, weekly or flexi) as an option for students aged 12 to 18, who enjoy state-of-the-art facilities in our two boarding houses.

Head of ACS Cobham, Barnaby Sandow

Welcome from the Head of School

Welcome to ACS Cobham, where our diverse community creates a culture of global citizenship and academic excellence.

We celebrate scholarship, reward responsibility and are aware of the importance of our role in shaping the young people in our care. By promoting a broad and balanced curriculum we ready our students for an ever-changing world.
We foster independent critical thinking, an intrinsic love of learning, and a fundamental belief in the worth of each individual. The opportunities to develop beyond the classroom are key to our mission of producing well rounded, resilient individuals that can flourish on the world stage. Our team continually strives to promote the growth of the whole person as a confident and caring contributor to society. We see this as a pathway that inspires positive change in every one of us that is involved in the process. 
Our diversity is our distinction. We ready our students to communicate effectively across borders, behave appropriately across cultures and empathise with each individual across a project team. The global constituency at ACS Cobham is an education in itself.
Are you ready to discover a school that prepares students for a world that demands a new kind of learning – and a new kind of citizen? 




In a new event series hosted by ACS International Schools, you are invited to delve into the big challenges with us and consider exactly what kind of citizen does the world need to contribute to a better, more sustainable tomorrow? Open to ACS parents and students, as well as the wider community interested in building a sustainable future, the ‘What the world needs’ series aims to inform and inspire, supporting the young people of today to become the change makers of tomorrow. In true ACS fashion, contributors from all over the world will be invited to share their experiences and provide an international perspective on what it is we need to get ready.
