Our Vision & Values

Vision from our co-founders

Excellent teaching is at the heart of high-quality learning. Students should be motivated by teachers who love their subject, are highly skilled in communicating their knowledge, enjoy what they are doing and gain immense pleasure from working with young people.

At school, all students should be encouraged and challenged to do their very best. Above all, schools should be places where learning is central to everyone.
- Sir John Graham and Dawn Jones, Co-founders of ACG Education
