Anglo-Chinese School (Primary)
Guide to Know Anglo-Chinese School (Primary)
The ACS (Primary) in Singapore is the Anglo-Chinese School family’s first primary school, located on the Barker Road site next to the ACS (Barker Road) block. It began with a secondary school on Coleman Street in 1887 and 1961. It relocated to a substantially expanded Coleman Street site, leaving the Barker Road campus to provide secondary and pre-university students. The Junior School moved to 25 Peck Hay Road in 1985, but the Anglo-Chinese School (Primary) remained to teach until 1994 at Canning Rise.
It joined the Barker Road school but was temporarily relocated to 9 Ah Hood Road in December 1998, while the Barker Road site gets rebuilt in that year. On 4 December 2002, it returned to Barker Road, and its students take the local PSLE in Primary 6 and have the option of continuing to the ACS Secondary Schools with affiliation benefits. Mr. Richard Lim Chew Hiong, the current principal, is not a former student of ACS. There are nine GEP centers in the area. From P4-6, each level has two GEP classes: H and I.
