Boarding Life at ACS:

Image of International Day & Boarding School in London UK area- The ACS Cobham Dormitory is an integral part of the school community, offering separate-wing accommodation for over 100 boys and girls aged between 12 and 18.

- In our diverse but shrinking world society, the Dormitory provides a relaxed, friendly home for students from a wealth of cultures. We actively celebrate the cultural diversity of our student body, and promote internationalism as an intrinsic part of boarding life. We aim to make every student aware that they are important individuals, and encourage them to develop into mature and responsible global citizens. We also believe that the boarding experience should encourage positive involvement, with students engaged in a wide variety of extracurricular activities.

- The Dormitory has six resident House Parents, ten live-in teacher supervisors who are each assigned a group of students to support, plus school counsellors, and a campus nurse. It is vital to recognise that, in conjunction with parents, the Dormitory, and its highly trained staff serve the needs of the whole student – academic, physical, personal, and emotional.
