At ACG Sunderland, college students have access to exceptional facilities and teaching staff, an international academic curriculum and a pastoral care programme that is underpinned by personalised attention. Our students are proud to be a part of the ACG Sunderland family.

The school consists of a Lower College (Years 7 to 10) and an Upper College (Years 11 to 13), with a seamless transition of learning between the two. The unique needs of each level are reflected in our teaching programmes – our Year 7 students are grouped together while the rest of the college features vertical classes, with a mix of year groups.

Our strong academic focus is supported by an outstanding extra-curricular programme and students are encouraged to strive for excellence in all aspects of their lives.
