Trustee’s Message

As an emerging developer, Bahria Town is committed to develop and deliver academic programs that can develop the strengths and potential of our students. We emphasize the development of the CORE competencies of our students which means their knowledge and skills to succeed in their profession. We help our students to become good thinkers as well as become good leaders.

Our courses are carefully arranged to be attuned to the tertiary education restructuring and reforming agenda. This needs the concerted efforts of every academic member of the school to continue working for academic excellence.

Principal’s Message

Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Marius Wessels and I come from South Africa. I hold a Bachelor of Education degree as well as a Diploma in Business Management. I have been in the field of education for the past 33 years. In my humble opinion, teaching is one of the very few occupations wherein an individual is afforded the opportunity to contribute to the future of the world’s citizens in a comprehensive and meaningful manner. I started my career as a teacher, teaching in various schools and different systems around the world. This is my 17th year of leading a school and it is indeed an honour and a privilege for me to be able to lead a school such as ACE International Academy.

I would like to quote from our mission statements that reads as follows: “ACE International Academy offers Cambridge International Examinations – CIEs/University of Cambridge Local Examinations Syndicate (UCLES) curricula we strive to enables its multi-ethnic students to achieve their optimum intellectual, social, emotional and physical potential; encouraging in them respect for others, benevolence and good manners. ACE; dedicated to Academic Creative Excellence; demands responsibility and promotes the power of collaboration with stress on critical thinking to develop valuable citizens making their country proud.”

It is of the utmost importance that we, as a school and you, as parents, support our students in the realization of all that our mission statement stands for. I can assure you that we will leave no stone unturned to ensure that each and every student of ours, achieves to the best of their potential. Educational excellence for us means a focus on the individual child and their strengths and how best we can develop those. This begins in our Foundation Stage where learning through play takes centre stage and continues into all the phases of the school, culminating in the Secondary phase where academic rigour, cultural growth, creative thinking and individual expression are the order of the day. We delight in sending well prepared, happy and confident children out into the world.

I look forward to the opportunity of becoming better acquainted with each of you and invite you to come and share any concerns that you may have with me. I wish you all a wonderful school year. If I can be of any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me and know that my door is always open.


Message from Head of Primary

ACE International Academy is the most remarkable school I have ever worked in. I love this school, the children and all associated people and feel proud and privileged to work with wonderful children , teachers and supportive families since 2007 June.
I have been a teacher for more than 20 years and the majority of my career was spent in the inner cities of Birmingham and Manchester in the United Kingdom. I have worked in Primary classes in every phase from Foundation stage to KS 2 and over the years have held a variety of responsibilities. It was my dream to work in my own home country, transfer all the skills and methods which I acquired during my service and to apply them in any school in Pakistan. Thank God my dream came true and I stepped on a new path which leads me to join this school as a Vice Principal and Head of Primary Section. This has been the most enjoyable and rewarding move I have ever made. I work with a large team of dedicated and talented staff. They work tirelessly to ensure that we provide the best opportunities and experiences possible so that every child has access to an outstanding education. I believe that every aspect of this Academy is exceptional.
Our curriculum is based on British Cambridge curriculum and to implement the curriculum we have got innovative approaches to organise the way students are taught to compete in the international market of education. Our philosophy is that “Every child is at the centre of our thinking and planning”. We prepare our children to be kind, respectful, confident, and reliable and to be able to differentiate between right and wrong.
Our school is well regarded in the twin city and the ethos of the school including our warmth and friendliness is often commented on by visitors. The relationship between the school and parents is extremely positive.We are always very proud to show parents and visitors around the school. You are always welcome at ACE International.

Message From Head of Secondary/A Levels Section

“Never underestimate the power of love, determination, and creativity. It is what heart-centred leaders are made of.”

This quote of Maria Flynn best describes Mrs. Sikandar, the HEAD; Secondary/A Level Section.
(Mrs.)Raima Sikandar
HEAD; Secondary/A Level Section
To me the day is still fresh when I joined ACE as the Head of Secondary/A Level Section; many a group of students have graduated in these past years; many a milestone have been achieved, and many more we aspire to accomplish.
Since its founding in 2008, ACE International Academy being the flagship school of Bahria Town Pvt. Ltd – in itself synonymous with quality – was envisioned to stand at the forefront of imparting quality education. Over the past years the school has provided the opportunity to the students to pursue their dream of attaining excellence in life; this is particularly true since 2012 where every time without missing, Secondary/A Level Section has successfully managed to win repeated mentions in the Cambridge Outstanding Learners Awards.
It must be shared here what sets this institution apart and has put it in a niche of its own, is the commitment with which our team of teachers take to their heart the responsibility of making a difference, of bringing success and achievements to the students. It is not only their subject-expertise alone, it is this essential factor coupled with their positive attitude that makes it a winning combination. This makes ACE the place to be.
The diversity through the multi-ethnicity both in students and teachers make this institution rich in experiences to benefit from. Today, our graduating students are well-placed in Universities and HEIs of the best repute around the world and locally. In this journey of achievements we honour our faculty, alumni, current students and their parents. Together we will ensure that the school continues to remain a beacon of excellence and aspirations for generations to come.
