The ACS boarding experience

Head of Boarding at ACS Cobham

Boarding Cobham

I began my own boarding school journey aged 11. It was here that I met an inspirational House Master – he was approachable, supportive, and selfless; going above and beyond the call of duty. From then on, I knew I wanted to go into education and have now taught for over 18 years in both state and independent boarding schools.

My first year at ACS Cobham since becoming Head of Boarding in September has been fantastic. Both the school and the Dormitory have a very clear community ethos at their core and it is the most integrated school I have experienced, with the staff, students and the entire school community working well together.
