Sibling policy

Early application deadline for siblings: 15 December

The American School in London gives admissions priority to and early application notification for siblings of currently enrolled ASL students. Families applying for siblings should apply and submit all application materials, including school reports, teacher recommendations, testing results (if required), and application fees by 15 December.

The admissions office aims to notify families of an early decision by 31 January, however, this timeline can be affected in instances where further assessments or reports are needed. This is often the case for siblings who do not have fall reports available by 15 December, for applicants who may require a classroom visit or assessment, or for students with additional educational, speech, language or occupational therapy evaluations.

Sibling candidates will be evaluated according to the same criteria as all other applicants and must follow all of the same procedures. Sibling applicants who meet ASL admission criteria and December application deadline can be reasonably assured that a space will be offered when applying to Kindergarten 1, or if space is available when applying to another grade.
