Knowledgeable and engaging

We select teachers who not only maintain a thorough knowledge of their subjects, but also have the experience and passion to engage your child.

We value our teachers

Teachers at ACG Parnell are of the highest calibre, and consistently operate at a high standard, know each student and fully understand the learning needs of your child.

Your child will have regular and direct contact with an allocated tutor (usually one of their teachers) throughout the year. This ensures good oversight of your child’s academic programmes and progress.
