Welcome to TASIS The American School in England, an international school and community near London where the aspirations and potential of every student are fostered, nurtured, and challenged.
The School is dedicated to the pursuit of knowledge through curiosity and encourages each student to take responsibility for the learning process. Programs that promote the development of character, a commitment to community service, and an appreciation for beauty provide educational opportunities beyond academics.
Our Upper School International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme and Advanced Placement (AP) exam results are consistently strong, and our students are well-prepared both academically and emotionally to go on to study at some of the best universities in the world.
TASIS The American School in England is a member of the Independent Schools Association and, as such, is subject to inspection by the Independent Schools inspectorate (ISI), the leading UK and overseas independent school inspectorate. You may read the May 2019 ISI inspection report here. The School is also inspected and accredited by the New England Association of Schools & Colleges and the Council of International Schools.
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.
