Admissions for 2022-23

The American School in London is fully enrolled for this academic year. Prior to beginning an application, please contact the admissions office to ask about the likelihood of availability in your grade(s) for in-year admissions. If you need to access an application that you've already started, you can log in to the admissions portal. 

Admissions for 2023-24

Applications now open 
Deadline:  31 January 2023

Please review the requirements below and prepare for the process — some steps require advanced planning. 

Applications are considered complete once we have received the application fee and all of the information and supporting documents (listed below.)

There is a non-refundable application fee of £300 per student payable through the admissions portal. The fee is waived for families applying for financial aid.

Application requirements

Visas and residency 

ASL students must have the right to enter, live and study in the United Kingdom and are expected to live full-time with their parent(s) during their studies. The School does not provide Certificates for the Acceptance of Studies (CAS) for accepted candidates. It is therefore the expectation that families choosing ASL will independently arrange for appropriate visas without requiring sponsorship from the School.

Decisions & late applications

Admissions decisions are communicated to families by the end of February. There are circumstances where we may delay a decision or make the offer of a place conditional. This includes cases where there is a need for a classroom visit or in-house assessment, further information is required or the application is incomplete. Families who do not meet the January deadline, but who complete their applications by 15 March, will be notified by 15 April. Applications completed after 15 April will be considered on a rolling basis. 

The admissions office will always ask families to accept an admissions offer and submit a deposit through the admissions portal. Instances of fraud are reported regularly around the UK. Be diligent and protect yourself: always contact the School if you are suspicious of fraud before you make a payment.
