TASIS The American School in England offers a challenging American curriculum with Advanced Placement (AP) courses and the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme to students from approximately 60 nations.

Experienced and dedicated teachers provide individualised attention, nurturing each student's intellectual curiosity in small classes throughout TASIS England's three sections: Lower (ages 3-9), Middle (10-13), and Upper (14-18).

Each student is provided with multiple pathways through curricular and co-curricular programmes designed to inspire their learning, to encourage them to fulfil their potential, and to challenge them to contribute to their community.

TASIS England promotes student participation in an impressive selection of athletics, arts, and activities, nurturing the skills and attributes of life-long learning, international-mindedness, and resilience. Numerous service, travel, and leadership opportunities support and enrich each student's experience through intercultural learning and service to others.

One-to-one college counseling assists Upper School students in every step of the university selection and application process. Along with success in the IB Diploma and AP courses (similar to A-levels), accomplishments of the Class of 2020 include 61 scholarship offers, with over 85% securing places in their first-choice universities in the UK, the US, Canada, and worldwide.

The School's spacious campus, located in a quiet village 18 miles from London and 8 miles from Heathrow Airport, blends historic buildings with modern, purpose-built facilities for science, technology, theatre, visual arts, music, and sports.

Proximity to London enables the School to take full advantage of the opportunities that England and Europe offer as extensions to classroom learning, and students enjoy educational field trips, weekend activities, and travel abroad.

TASIS England's enduring goal is to provide a busy and happy environment in which each student flourishes as a principled, open-minded, compassionate member of a global community. Their confidence, resilience, and empathy as well as their academic achievements will serve as foundations for their future success in the ever-changing landscape of the world.
