The ACS(P) Brand of Education

The ACS(P) brand of education is anchored on our Founder, Bishop Oldham’s vision of the ACS philosophy of education. 

This is rooted on Academic Excellence, Strength of Character and Christian Service. The school’s vision is to produce young ACSian gentlemen of character, capability and creativity. Our mission is to provide an all-round education in an environment which seeks to bring out the potential in every child to the fullest and to develop in him a strong moral character, imbued with Christian values and principles to guide him for life ahead. 

The ACSian lies at the heart of the ACS(P) brand of education; every programme that the school puts in place is to provide a holistic education which the Year Head Team oversees to cater to the all-round development of the students in the following domains:

Affective Cognitive Social Physical

To realise our vision, the school hopes to develop in our young ACS(P) gentlemen four traits; these are the iHOPEFUL Leader, a Creative Learner, an Effective Communicator and a Community Collaborator.

At ACS (Primary), we also offer the Gifted Education Programme. Through all our endeavours, it is our hope that every young ACSian will “Serve one another humbly in love”. (Galatians 5:13b).

This episode of "History from the Hills" was aired in January 2014 and featured Fort Canning, with the surrounding buildings, including Anglo-Chinese Primary School (ACPS).  

Raymond Ang is an ACS old boy and attended ACPS at Canning Rise, ACS Secondary at Barker Road, and Anglo-Chinese Junior College at Dover Road.  In the programme, he fondly recalls his time at ACPS and walks us down memory lane at the school (which now houses the National Archives of Singapore), and the surrounding Fort Canning area. 

His friend Karen Hoisington, also featured in the programme, is the granddaughter of Henry Martyn Hoisington, who was a former ACS student and later teacher at Anglo-Chinese School from 1909 to 1933.  Significantly, he also composed the school anthem in 1926.

The ACS story is not complete without the participation and support of all stakeholders, especially parents and Old Boys. We count it a blessing to have supportive partners who believe in our cause and who partner us in our endeavours to prepare our young to face the future with confidence and hope. One such partner who has consistently supported our rugby boys is the Oldham Club - the sports and social/community outreach arm of the ACS Old Boys’ Association (ACS OBA). This video epitomises the ACS spirit of giving back to the school and the community. It also reflects our endeavours to help every ACSian to believe in himself.
