Guide To Know More About The Anglo-Chinese School Barker Road
The Anglo-Chinese School Barker Road is one of the ACS Family of Schools’ six units. The Anglo-Chinese School has a 125-year history that began with Bishop William Fitzjames Oldham’s vision and devotion. Little schooling was available in the city port at the time, and he intended to give an education to the numerous youngsters he observed roaming around the streets. With 13 students, he established Anglo-Chinese School in a shophouse on Amoy Street on March 1, 1886. On January 1, 1994, ACS (Barker Road) opened its doors as a comprehensive government-aided school serving primary and secondary students. Bishop Oldham’s vision of a philosophy of education that emphasises Academic Achievement, Strength of Character, and Christian Service is still alive and well at Anglo-Chinese School Barker Road.
Co-Curricular Activities (CCA) are an essential part of our students’ overall development. Our students explore their interests and abilities through CCAs. CCAs also help our kids build character, social-emotional skills, and talent will better prepare them for future challenges. CCAs bring students from all walks of life together. Students form friendships and a stronger feeling of belonging to the school and community through studying and engaging with one another. External CCA connections with other schools help to increase diversity at Anglo-Chinese School Barker Road.
