Get involved

Students must be formally registered by their School's Head of Year who liaises with the SHINE at ASL liaison at their school.

The American School in London, One Waverley Place, London, NW8 0NP
From St. John's Wood tube station on the Jubilee Line, cross Finchley Road. Continue west one block along Grove End Road to Waverley Place. Turn right; the entrance to the School is 35 meters ahead on the left. 

Checking In
When you arrive on campus, check in with Security, who will direct you to the location for SHINE. Parents and family members are welcome to wait at the school entrance. 

We ask that every participant arrive at 9:30 am for each session, and ensure that they are able to remain at SHINE until 12:30 pm. If you must arrive late or leave early one day, you must arrange this beforehand with Rita or Sandy.
