Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

ACS Hillingdon has been of­fi­cially recog­nised as the first in­ter­na­tional school to be ac­cred­ited as a Liv­ing Wage em­ployer.

The Liv­ing Wage Foun­da­tion pre­sented a plaque this month to ACS man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Chris John­son, on be­half of the school.

Liv­ing Wage Foun­da­tion di­rec­tor, Kather­ine Chap­man said: “We are de­lighted to wel­come ACS In­ter­na­tional Schools to the Liv­ing Wage move­ment. We hope to see many oth­ers fol­low their lead.

“To date we have ac­cred­ited over 2,300 lead­ing em­ploy­ers, rang­ing from in­de­pen­dent print­ers and book­shops, to well­known com­pa­nies such as Na­tion­wide, Aviva and SSE, and we are thrilled to wel­come ACS In­ter­na­tional Schools to this net­work.”

Gerry Pey­ton, hu­man re­sources di­rec­tor at ACS, added: “We are for­tu­nate to have in­cred­i­bly ded­i­cated and hard work­ing staff and we are de­lighted to be the first in­ter­na­tional school or­gan­i­sa­tion to be­come an ac­cred­ited Liv­ing Wage Em­ployer.

“ACS is justly proud of its rep­u­ta­tion, re­sults and val­ues and we em­brace our so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity in the com­mu­nity.

“We be­lieve our com­mit­ment to our vi­sion – ‘Through learn­ing, in­spire all to make a dif­fer­ence’ – ap­plies as much to us as to our stu­dents.”
