When did a school make you feel this good? Families just know when a relocation works. Whether you are a mom or dad, toddler or teenager, HR or relocation professional, from Texas or Tokyo, when all the pieces come together, it can deliver one of life’s most rewarding experiences. ACS understands the complex needs of globally mobile families. We have partnered the relocation industry since 1967 to meet the many challenges that face international families moving to London. Our campus-specific Admissions, Housing and Transport experts work closely with parent-assisted Welcome Teams, International Groups, Parent/Teacher Organisations and Buddy programmes to create a smooth, seamless and happy transition. That is why each year literally hundreds of families from more than 50 countries make ACS ‘the’ London solution to their educational and lifestyle needs.

To find out how we can help meet your relocation requirements, please visit www.acs-schools.com Or, call either ACS Cobham +44 (0)1932 869744, ACS Egham +44 (0)1784 430611 or ACS Hillingdon +44 (0)1895 818402 ACS Schools are non-sectarian and co-educational (day and boarding) for students 2 to 18 years of age.
