Admissions for 2024-25


Application deadlines for the 2024-25 school year have now passed. At this time, applications are being considered on a rolling basis. Applications for the 2025-26 school year will open on 1 September 2024 with a deadline in January 2025. 


Some steps of the application process involve advanced planning and we recommend reviewing the requirements well ahead of the deadlines in preparation.  

Applications are considered complete once we have received all of the required items as listed in the admissions portal.

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 student visa sponsorship/Certificates for the Acceptance of Studies (CAS). It is therefore the expectation that families choosing ASL will independently arrange for appropriate visas without requiring sponsorship or assistance from the School.

Decisions & late applications

Admissions decisions are communicated by the end of February to families who complete applications by 31 January. 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.
