American Schools in London

Relocating to London or already resident here?  You may wish to consider the renowned American schools in London and the home counties.  Our thriving US community takes advantage of these excellent schools, as well as both UK and international families relocating to the capital.

The American School in London (ASL).

Located in St John’s Wood, in North London, the American School (ASL) follows the US curriculum, taking children from 4 all the way to 18.   The 50 different nationalities represented at the school give it a truly global outlook, whilst at the same time focusing on providing an American education.  Students and parents comment on the relaxed and welcoming atmosphere.

The school understands how challenging an international move can be and takes time to help new families settle.  It is also experienced in helping children transition from the UK to US curriculum.  For families coming from either American or international schools abroad, ASL feels friendly and familiar.  The school has been rated “outstanding” across the board by Ofsted. The High School places a high percentage of students in Ivy League universities.

The American International School in England (TASIS)

Located in Surrey, just outside London, TASIS provides a quality, rounded education for both day (age 3–18) and boarding (age 14–18) pupils from around the globe.  The school is co-educational with over 50 nationalities represented, approximately half of which hold an American passport, while 17% have UK nationality.   The school offers both the American curriculum and the IB Diploma Programme, perfect for families relocating from international schools around the globe.

About half the students move on the US universities, with the rest choosing higher education in the UK, Europe and worldwide.  Students enjoy the stunning rural campus which provides outstanding opportunities for sports and the arts.
