Overview

Students and staff come to ACS Cobham from every corner of the globe. The result is a wonderfully open-minded, outward-looking culture, with a genuine curiosity about the world. Internationalism is at the very heart of the ACS philosophy: a multicultural identity and commitment to diversity, tolerance and choice. At the heart of our approach is the idea of readiness – we empower our students with the skills and knowledge to thrive in a world that is changing fast.

We know that learning is one of life’s greatest pleasures, so we design our programmes to inspire and instil a sense of wonder, blending the best academic programmes from around the world – including the renowned International Baccalaureate (IB) diploma – with inspiring activities and opportunities to learn outside the classroom. The welcome from our international community is warm and genuine and each new student is a valuable addition to our student body.

Co-curricular activities

At ACS Cobham they understand the value of co-curricular activities in helping to provide a well-rounded and balanced school experience. Together the school shapes the young hearts and minds that grow to respect cultural differences, and choose to make a difference to the lives of others.

This is most clearly seen in many student-led outreach programmes. It is also highlighted by our long-standing commitment to create brighter learning opportunities in Namibia, and the international works of Disaster Relief Fund to help alleviate the impact of sudden tragedy wherever it may occur in the world.

Students drive the many events that draw together artistic, cultural, interpersonal, intellectual, and compassionate leadership to extend learning beyond the classroom, and community beyond our front gates. Our young people turn compassion into action. The future is theirs, and they are proud to take responsibility for it.
