Competitions

Regular season competition

Starting in Grade 7, our teams compete with local London schools as well as with other international schools in Europe and beyond. Teams often travel to Belgium, Germany and France for matches and games.

LSSA and ISST events

The International Schools Sports Tournament (ISST) provides a venue for athletes from member schools to compete in an environment that is safe, challenging, professional and educational. Each athlete is given the opportunity to demonstrate his/her best athletic ability, while maintaining a spirit of respect and cooperation with fellow athletes from various international backgrounds. The London Schools Sports Association (LSSA) is composed of the American School in London, the three ACS international schools campuses of Cobham, Egham and Hillingdon, as well as TASIS and Marymount. These institutions compete on a regular basis as an entity on the varsity, junior varsity and middle school levels.
