ACS is an incredibly warm and welcoming environment. I think most students here, have at some point been the ‘new kid’, they remember that it can be an anxious time. Making new friends and meeting new teachers was extraordinarily easy and I needn’t have been worried about that element at all.
What makes ACS Egham great
Situated on 20 acres of glorious English countryside adjoining the Royal Savill Gardens, and only 25 miles from central London, ACS Egham is an IB World School for over 600 students (ages 3 to 18), and 160 expert faculty and staff from over 50 countries.
We are proud to be the only school in England fully authorised to offer all 4 International Baccalaureate (IB) programmes:

The school offers an exceptional learning environment within a beautifully landscaped campus setting.

Our dedicated IB Diploma Centre has study space/classrooms for individual and collaborative study; additional small classroom spaces for meetings, presentations, native language tutoring or small group activities; a resident IB Diploma Co-ordinator, Secretary, and University Counsellor with a suite to host visiting university admissions representatives; a lounge/break out area; computer and presentation equipment; and kitchen and refreshment facilities.
The school also features a dedicated Drama space and stage, and stunning Sports Centre complex with dance studio, fitness suite, two FIBA basketball courts, an indoor climbing wall and an outdoor traversing wall.
ACS bursaries will be offered to students who are most likely to benefit from an ACS education, but might not otherwise be able to attend the school. The financial awards will range from 20 – 100% of full fees. All bursaries are means-tested, and each financial award is dependent on the student’s individual circumstance. In line with our values, ACS welcomes students with enquiring minds, an international mindset, and a desire to make a difference. We offer both Middle School Bursaries for students aged 11 or 13, and High School Bursaries, including the International Baccalaureate Diploma (IBDP), for students aged 16. Students applying for the IBDP bursary will be expected to achieve in the region of 5 A's at GCSE. All students will benefit from a broad international curriculum which aims to inspire all to become successful lifelong learners and responsible global citizens.
Our criteria for awarding bursaries
We welcome applications from parents who believe their child (girl or boy) will benefit from a place at ACS, and who will contribute strongly to the life of the community and our international ethos, but who require financial assistance. Assessments and a review of information submitted will follow, and decisions on bursary awards will be communicated by the 1st May 2018.
Calculating the bursary award
ACS financial awards are offered for up to 7 years, and range in size from 20 – 100% of full fees (and in exceptional circumstances will include specific additional school-related expenditure to enable students to participate fully in school life). We calculate the amount of each bursary only after we have assessed parents' level of income and financial assets. Upon application, parents will be asked to submit various documents relating to this. Bursaries will be awarded for Middle School (ages 11 or 13), or High School (aged 16). Bursary awards will be reviewed on an annual basis against any changes in parents’ financial circumstances.
