We are the same as all national schools because we teach the national primary curriculum. We are similar to most national schools because we wear a uniform. We are different as everyone can apply for a place in our school. This is because we are multi denominational and co-educational. We respect and welcome all religious denominations and help children link to their churches in the community but we do not provide religious instruction in school time. Our Ethos is what drives us and what makes ACNS what it is.
