How can I apply to ACS Cobham?
As a major international school serving a global community in London, ACS sees a fairly high turnover of students, and generally has places in most year groups. However, boarding places can fill up quickly. Offers are made based on school reports and recommendations rather than entrance exams, although a child’s level of English will be assessed.
