Families in Transition
Welcome to TASIS England!
Changing country, school, home – or all three – can be challenging for children and parents alike.
This section is aimed at helping you and your family experience the smoothest transition possible during your relocation. Here you will find useful information, helpful tips, and resources. Making a transition is a process that starts from the minute the decision is made to relocate. You may experience periods of excitement and exhilaration, but also moments of grief and sadness. After all, change involves loss, but loss also leads to growth and the discovery of new strengths. From our teachers, counselors, administrators, and advisors to our parent organizations, we, as a community, are committed to giving the best support possible.
As an American international school, we have over 50 nationalities represented, and each of our families brings with them their own unique story. The TASIS Parent Association (TPA) and the Parents' Information and Resource Committee (PIRC) organize social events and well-established informational seminars to help new families as they cope with the challenges of adjusting to their new life in the United Kingdom. We look forward to playing a part in yours!
Scenes from our Back-to-School Welcome Picnic
Great environment for family oriented students. Welcoming community not just for the kids but also for expats. PIRC (Parents' Information & Resources Committee) is such a great support for newbies. School size is phenomenal, classes are small, education is great. Class choices are up to date. TASIS Parent
I grew up going to TASIS from 4th grade to my Junior year. The best thing, and most influential part of going to school there, is that they taught us how to think, not how to take tests. I came back to the U.S.A my senior year to American public schools and the standards were way below to what TASIS expected. I recommend TASIS to anyone looking to give their child the BEST education.
