Learning for life

A comprehensive, well-rounded academic education provides a strong foundation for a bright future.

We will equip your child with the confidence, knowledge and skills required for tomorrow’s world.

The curriculum at ACG Parnell is designed to capture the vast range of ideas and knowledge in the world and bring it to students to discover, interpret and use in their future lives. We expose them to a global pool of knowledge – mathematics, science, music, languages, technology, the arts and humanities and so much more.

The rigorous ACG Parnell curriculum encourages students to think of themselves as citizens of the world and acquire the skills and knowledge they need to navigate their future. ACG Parnell is proud to offer the highly regarded Cambridge International curriculum to all students at all year levels. Setting a global standard for education, Cambridge qualifications are accepted by every UK university, by 600 universities in the US (including all Ivy League colleges) and in many other major student destinations, such as Canada, Australia, South Africa, Germany and the Netherlands. 


A great education prepares students to make a difference in a world which continues to evolve through science, technology and innovation. This means using new technologies with confidence, taking responsible risks and learning from experience. We encourage critical thinking skills and creativity which are essential for success.

We help our students gain these essential skills through a comprehensive, well-rounded academic programme, underpinned by internationally recognised Cambridge curriculum.

The Cambridge Pathway approach is learner-centred and encourages curiosity and enquiry. Your child will develop a range of skills including problem-solving, critical thinking, creativity, teamwork, independent learning and communication.
