2407.jpg

Cultivating independent minds in a challenging intellectual and global environment, TASIS The American School in England is a coeducational school for day (ages 3-18) and boarding (ages 14-18) students. More than 50 nations are represented within its diverse and dynamic community. As the second largest nationality group, British students comprise 13% of the total.

Committed to providing the very best educational experience, the School offers excellent facilities for theatre, visual arts, music, sports, fitness, and technology on its beautiful 46-acre campus, located approximately 18 miles southwest of London.

The student faculty ratio of 6:1 and small classes ensure individualised attention. While academics are emphasised, TASIS England also offers a comprehensive and diverse programme of athletics and extracurricular activities. Students regularly participate in community service, leadership opportunities, cultural excursions, and educational travel, all of which foster personal development and ensure a balanced education.

Academic programmes include the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme, a rigorous American curriculum with Advanced Placement courses, and EAL support at every level. TASIS England’s commitment to forward-thinking education is evident throughout the curricula. Students of all ages use the School’s technological resources, from iPads, Chromebooks, and Smart Boards to the 3D printer and robotics studio in the Samsung Centre for Innovation, Inspiration, and Exploration.

The future success of today’s students will depend on their ability to solve problems by thinking laterally and working collaboratively. TASIS England complements its traditional education in both the Lower and Middle Schools with a MakerSpace programme, designed to help students acquire these important skills. With an emphasis on innovation and creativity, students work together as they explore, experiment, and find solutions to a variety of challenges while using their knowledge of science, technology, engineering, art, and math.

IB Diploma Programme candidates achieve a 98% pass rate and consistently average 34 points, well above the international benchmarks of 74%/29 points. For those studying the American curriculum with Advanced Placement (AP) courses, the AP pass rate is typically 89%, as compared to the global average of 60%. Many US and Canadian universities will award advance credit for successful completion of AP courses which, like A-levels, earn UCAS Tariff points.

Upper School students benefit from one-to-one university counselling, and TASIS graduates gain acceptance to prestigious universities around the world including Bristol, Durham, KCL, LSE, Oxford, UCL, and Edinburgh (in the UK); Columbia, Duke, Harvard, MIT, Notre Dame, and Princeton (in the US); British Columbia, McGill, and Toronto (in Canada)

TASIS England understands the importance of character development as well as academic achievement, and promotes every student’s well-being, communication skills, and confidence both in and out of the classroom. The School expects its students to be engaged with the world, committed to using their knowledge and talents to make a lifelong impact, and inspired to make it more just.

Every day is an “open day.” TASIS England welcomes families to campus throughout the year for individual visits. Please contact our Admissions Office to arrange your personal “open day” and to learn more about TASIS England’s thriving academic community.
