Welcome to High School

Our role is to act as facilitators of communication between the High School (HS) administration, the HS Academic & College Counseling Department and the parents of your grade level. We are the parents’ link to the PSO board; and we also support the Head of Year’s, the Advisors, and the HS student council as needed.

Among others, this is achieved by co-arranging formal HS Information Meetings by grades, organising informal information sessions, coffees/lunches, by keeping parents informed by email, and by regularly meeting/communicating with the Principal, Chris Walker, Assistant Principal Bo Wood, the Academic Deans and the College Counselors etc., and the student council throughout the year.

I’m Eugenia Calvo Paz, we moved to the UK 9 years ago, we’re originally from Argentina but lived in many countries before, my husband Gustavo and me, decided to settle here with our 4
children. The only son currently in school is our youngest, Tomas in 9th grade. The older 3 already graduated from ACS. Juan and Lucas finished University and Santiago is finishing this coming
year. The school is very special for us, after living as expats and moving from place to place, our children found long lasting friendships here. We’re very proud to be part of this community.

Betsy Snyder

We are originally from the US, but have spent 11 of the past 18 years living in the UK, and I have also lived and worked in France. We have three children at ACS Cobham – sons Owen in grade 10 and Brennan in grade 8 and daughter Amelia in grade 5. Our children all started their education in the English schools, but as they got older, we recognized the importance of the international education that ACS Cobham can offer, as they are truly growing up to be citizens of the world. I am looking forward to working with everyone this year!

We are a Dutch family that moved to the UK 4 years ago. My son, Friso, is in grade 12. My daughter is at the University of Bristol. We have been living abroad for the past 14 years and enjoyed it to the max. We love the international community at ACS. A lot of things are going on at school and it is important that we keep a good relation and communication between the parents and the school. I am hoping to contribute as well in the upcoming two years. We are all doing this for the best of our kids! Wishing you all a great summer and of course a happy and successful year ahead!
