What the school says

“Established in 1976, TASIS The American School in England is a leading co-educational, independent day and boarding school providing a truly international learning experience.

“The school’s beautiful 46-acre campus is located 18 miles southwest of London and 8 miles from Heathrow. Students from over 60 nations thrive in an environment where they are encouraged to become lifelong learners, develop international-mindedness and take responsibility for their community and the environment through service leadership.
 
“Our curricular and co-curricular programs provide each student with multiple pathways to inspire their learning as they challenge themselves and strive towards their personal potential.

“The high-quality academic offerings include Advanced Placement (AP) courses developed by the American College Board and the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme. Both provide well-defined pathways to universities throughout the world.

“An impressive 96 percent of our graduates are accepted by their first- or second-choice universities, and students attend institutions in the United States (34 percent), the United Kingdom (50 percent) and around the world (16 percent).”


Curriculum

Academic programmes at TASIS The American School in England have always been given the highest priority by both the school's dedicated teachers and the administration. In the lower and middle schools, the Core Knowledge Sequence provides the foundation for the curriculum, which ensures that all students in these sections learn a coherent and unified body of knowledge and academic skills.

Upper-school students follow a challenging college-preparatory curriculum, with the option of pursuing the International Baccalaureate Diploma or Advanced Placement courses in many subjects. Students for whom English is an additional language receive support through a dedicated International Section with a full range of English and academic courses.

All TASIS students receive individual academic advice and help, and older students receive extensive college (university) counselling throughout the four years of Upper School.

The school promotes participation in its comprehensive extra-curricular programmes of arts, athletics, activities and service leadership.

From the headmaster

“Thank you for your interest in TASIS The American School in England, a learning community in which students are challenged by the academic program, welcomed by their new peers, and engaged in a host of sports and activities that promote their wellbeing. Ideally situated on a beautiful campus in Surrey, the school provides the dual benefits of a safe environment within easy reach of all that a vibrant and dynamic city like London has to offer.

“Whether you are entrusting us with the education and care of your child as a boarding student or you are a family relocating to the UK, the importance we place on developing enduring relationships throughout our community results in a caring and supportive environment. I am amazed at how well the faculty and staff at TASIS England balance the challenge of a rigorous curriculum with the care provided by our pastoral support programs.

“Boarding students arriving on our campus find a network of support provided by their house parents, teachers, and advisors that will help them settle in quickly and feel 'at home' within our campus community.

“TASIS England inspires a passion for learning throughout our day and boarding programs. Your children will be encouraged to take ownership of their learning and to contribute to their community. At TASIS England they will gain independence, responsibility, respect, and a sense of creativity through the development of relationships that will transcend their time at our school. Quite simply, we are developing the leaders of the future by going above and beyond in every aspect of school life. Your children will benefit from and contribute to our school, not only by excelling in academics, but also by developing the attributes of compassion, empathy, respect, and gratitude.”


What the parents say

“There is no place like TASIS. From the moment you step onto campus, the warmth and welcoming atmosphere is felt. We have completed one year so far and are so thankful to call TASIS home. This community cares for the whole family and as expats we couldn't be happier with the decision we made to send our children here. Everyone does play their part, and we are all vested in enriching the lives of our children, their families, and the teachers and staff. TASIS will always hold a place in our hearts!”
