TASIS - The American School In England TASIS - The American School In England


Film is both an artistic and academic subject that has grown in popularity at TASIS England. Upper School students can choose to study Film as an elective or as part of the IB Diploma.

By inspiring, exciting, and educating students about the language of film, we embolden them to create their own films as well as deconstruct the signs, themes, and ideas behind classic and contemporary works of cinema.
As we guide learners through the process of planning, shooting, and editing, our filmmaking courses encourage collaboration and offer students superb opportunities for personal growth in:

  • Organization
  • Planning
  • Assertive leadership
  • Positive communication
  • Learning from failure
  • Team dynamics
  • Personal reflection

Film is the most actively consumed art form on the planet. By studying a film academically, students can discover valuable insights about the culture that created it and grow in their international-mindedness and understanding of a range of subjects, such as history, economics, politics, faith, race, and psychology.
Our courses give students access to a superb range of professional filming equipment and make use of our iMac and MacBook Pro editing suites.


We are incredibly proud of our extensive Arts courses. TASIS England’s professional, modern facilities support all the Arts programs. The School hosts music recitals and concerts, art and photography exhibitions, theatre productions, and dance performances on our stunning 46-acre campus in Surrey throughout the school year.

The TASIS Arts department’s belief that the underlying value of the process outweighs the final piece or performance aligns with the TASIS England mission of nurturing the curiosity of each child and encouraging them to become active members of our global community.
