TASIS The American School in England provides a truly international learning experience for children aged 3 to 18. Within our culturally diverse community, students from over 60 nations benefit from personalized attention in small classes. Our caring teachers are committed to helping each student develop a sense of individuality, realize their full potential, and take pride in who they are as they discover their passion and follow their own pathway.
The TASIS boarding program provides a safe and welcoming home-away-from-home for students. In addition, our well-developed settling-in programs reflect our extensive experience working with globally mobile families. The School’s support helps students and their families overcome the challenges of moving to a new school. They feel part of the TASIS community almost immediately as they adapt to new surroundings and, in many cases, a different culture and language.
Our impressive academic offerings include Advanced Placement courses developed by the American College Board and the IB Diploma Programme. Both provide well-defined pathways to universities in the US, the UK, or anywhere in the world. A broad range of co-curricular, leadership, and service opportunities round out our students’ educational experience.
Our spacious 46-acre campus is set in beautiful Surrey countryside, within 20 minutes of Heathrow and 45 minutes from London. Health and safety is a priority and we have created the most secure environment possible, upholding exemplary cleaning standards and minimizing risk by implementing many rigorous strategies in accordance with UK government advice. You can rest assured that your children are in safe hands.
Your children are stepping into a complex and interconnected world. We believe that, together, we can help nurture and create a future generation of compassionate, open-minded, principled citizens. If you would like your child to thrive academically and socially in an international, diverse, and caring community, please contact our Admissions office.
My son joined TASIS a year ago, after ten years at a different school in another country. His (and therefore our) transition was very smooth; this is due both to the exceptional assistance given to new families and to the dedication of his teachers.
Class sizes are small therefore teachers are able to address individual needs and strengths. Standards and expectations are high, but students are well supported and lessons/classes are designed to bring out the best in each student. The teachers clearly love their jobs. Communication between parents and teachers is age appropriate. In HS (where he is), students are encouraged to advocate for themselves, but parents are kept in the loop.
The parent body is extremely active and very welcoming. This is especially important where families are new to the UK and know few people outside of school.
In short, our move to TASIS has been a resounding success and my son is thriving.
This is our second year at TASIS, and it has been a very good move for us. It has been academically challenging for my kids, and they are both much happier at TASIS than they were at their previous school. The heart of the school is what makes such a difference. The parent community is very welcoming. For the most part, the kids support each other, and the teachers seem to care about the students.
This is a fantastic private school that deserves to be ranked with the best of what we have been exposed to in New England, London and New York. The academics are the best provided by any American school in England and I suspect Europe. They are able to challenge highly motivated academic students, but are also able to provide support to less academic children, to a point. Don't let the college list fool you, the demographics of the school may keep this list from reading like a New England prep school, but the teaching, curriculum and student body will challenge any student. Equally important, the pastoral care is second to none. This school actually cares about its children. The lengths they will go to protect them emotionally is unbelievable. This is perhaps why they don't have anywhere near the suspension and expulsion rates of some other American schools. The children are truly celebrated for their strengths, kindnesses and academic abilities are consistently valued and rewarded, and it truly nurtures children in an idyllic environment.
As an American ex-pat living in England, I cannot think of a better school for my children. When we moved here from China, we looked at all of the area schools, even a couple in London but couldn't find the right fit. When we stumbled upon TASIS we knew we'd found the perfect school for both of our children. TASIS challenges them while offering support and understanding at the same time. It cares for the wellbeing of the student and has an incredible community of support. From Buddy Families, to transition team support, grade level coffees.
My children have blossomed over the last two years here. We plan to stay for another 4 years. I highly recommend taking a look at TASIS.
