Local Town PermissionTASIS England defines the School Vicinity as the area bounded by the neighboring towns of Windsor, Eton, Egham, Staines, Chertsey, and Virginia Water, including Windsor Great Park. The school grants local town permission to students in grades 9 through 12 unless parents specifically request that it be withheld. All students must return to campus at the time prescribed for their grade.
London Travel Permission
Since the School is close to London and all its cultural offerings, boarding students with London Travel Permission granted by their parents may leave campus at the weekend to visit the city or other destinations outside the School Vicinity. It is required that 9th grade students and first semester 10th grade students, with London Travel Permission, travel with one or more fellow TASIS students. It is also recommended that all students, regardless of age or class standing, travel with other TASIS students.
London Travel Permission applies only to students who have written permission on file. Individual adherence to appropriate standards of conduct and dress is expected and required, as is observance of the approved itinerary. All students must return to campus at the time prescribed for their grade.
