TASIS The American School in England offers an exceptional range of opportunities, including our Global Community Scholarships, to enable children with intellectual curiosity, principles, and an open mind to thrive at our School.

We offer means-tested Financial Assistance to new and current members of the School at any grade, via completion of an application form and process. Financial Assistance of up to 100% of tuition fees may be awarded to any qualifying student, currently attending school in any country, who satisfies our academic requirements.

Our additional Junior (Grade 8/Year 9) and Senior (Grade 11/Year 12) Bursaries of up to 100% of tuition fees offer support to students joining us at these levels, and may be awarded to any qualifying student meeting our academic, and additional bursary, requirements. Junior Bursaries are available to students who have attended a UK school for the entire school year prior to the year of application; Senior Bursaries are available to students attending school in any country.

Our Global Community Scholarships are non-means-tested awards of up to 25% of tuition fees, available to students who excel in their academic studies and demonstrate the potential to make an exceptional contribution to our School, including in the sports, arts, or extracurricular activities. Grade 8/Year 9 awards are available to students who have attended a UK school, including TASIS England for the entire school year prior to the year of application; Grade 11/Year 12 awards are available to students attending school in any country.

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE AND BURSARIES

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE – NEW MEMBERS OF OUR SCHOOL

For full information about, and to apply for, our means-tested Financial Assistance for new students (except Grades 8 and 11), please contact our Admissions Office at ukadmissions@tasisengland.org. Existing members of our school community should contact the Business Office (all grades).

All applications for financial support are means tested. Applicants are required to submit evidence of their income, capital, and other assets. All applicants (normally both parents) are interviewed by two members of the School’s staff who visit the candidate’s home before the offer of financial support is confirmed. Means testing is carried out annually (though not the interview or home visit) and levels of support will fluctuate with the parental income.

JUNIOR (GRADE 8/YEAR 9) AND SENIOR (GRADE 11/YEAR 12) BURSARIES – NEW APPLICANTS TO THE SCHOOL

Junior Bursaries are available to students who have attended a UK school for a minimum of a year; Senior Bursaries are available to students attending school in any country. Bursary holders will benefit from additional assistance with exam fees, busing, and contributions towards school trips

Eligibility for Junior and Senior Bursaries – New Applicants to the School

TASIS England’s mission is to nurture intellectual curiosity and to embolden each learner to flourish as a principled, open-minded, and compassionate member of a global community. Bursaries will be awarded to candidates who show evidence of:

  • Their learning through curiosity
  • Ownership of their learning process
  • Character development
  • Commitment to service and community

Eligibility for a bursary is initially assessed on the basis of the parents’/guardians’ financial circumstances.

Bursaries will be offered to students on entry who:

  • Meet the School’s normal academic requirements for admission
  • Have attended a school in the UK for the entire school year prior to the year of this first entry to TASIS (for Grade 8 entry only – those students not meeting this criterion will be considered for our Financial Assistance opportunities)
  • Whose parents have demonstrated their inability to afford a full fee-paying place
  • May live in circumstances of economic or social deprivation

We welcome applications from candidates from all ethnic and religious backgrounds.

  • A grant of £250 per year towards the cost of School trips and visits
  • An initial grant of £500 to cover the costs of equipment and items such as sports team clothing as appropriate
  • Free busing

Where bursary holders receive partial fee remission, the parents/guardians of bursary holders are normally expected to meet the costs of:
