AIC - the best school to get you into the world’s best universities!


ACG Sunderland students work on a BP challenge problem.


into the upcoming Robocup Junior competition, in which they were regional champions of last year. In this instance the students build and programme their own robot. They choreograph a dance for the robot and then perform interactively alongside it on the dance floor. ACG Sunderland has also been trialling a programme by the


Royal Society of New Zealand called Primary CREST which has now developed into a science and technology challenge which covers one term. It is a long-term thinking project where students document their progress on each problem in a log book with photos. While you can do this individually, ACG Sunderland has several teams working together. “Developing the ability for primary-aged students to really listen to


each others’ ideas and seeing them talking the problems through, and not giving up, can be really hard lessons at times. The perseverance they are developing at this age will stand them in good stead for the rest of their lives.” says Kent.


Our students have received offers from 85% of the world’s top 20 universities, such as Harvard, Stanford, Princeton, Oxford and Cambridge. (THES World Rankings: 2010-11)


In our short history we have outgrown our present urban campus. On 24 January 2012, we will relocate from our present site to a university-style campus in a quiet hilltop location at 37 Heaphy Street, Blockhouse Bay.
