Acton High is proud to play an active role in the community of which it is a part and the strong relationships it has strived to developed were praised by SSAT (the Schools, Students and Teachers network) when it made the Cultural Diversity Quality Standard Silver Award to the school in June 2016.

SSAT Cultural Diversity Quality Standard Silver Award

In June 2016 Acton High School became the proud recipient of the SSAT Cultural Diversity Quality Standard Silver Award. The award assesses a school’s performance in five areas: ethos, achievement, curriculum, parent and community engagement, and staff and governors. It is made after a visit by a SSAT inspector and interviews with staff, students and governors. SSAT’s report on Acton High praised the strong relationships it has strived to develop with the local community and the high-quality newsletter and other communications it uses to promote communication with stakeholders.

Remembrance Day

Acton High’s annual Remembrance Day service sees students, staff, governors and invited guests come together to remember all those who have lost their lives in conflict.

The 2017 service saw Year 7s welcome guests including Mayor of Ealing Simon Woodroofe and fellow Councillors Joy Morrissey and Roz Reece to Acton High. The service included readings by Head Boy Zak Nur and Head Girl Teresa Oldroyd as well as Headteacher Ken Mackenzie. Music was performed by the Golden Age Choir – an Acton High-led project – with the school’s Year 10 singers. The remembrance message was delivered, for the second successive year, by guest speaker Abdi Duale of the West Ealing Mosque. For the second year, poppies crafted by students were displayed on the school’s front lawn.
