Welcome from the Head of School

The American School in London, founded in 1951, offers a singular opportunity to students—an American curriculum delivered by a first-rate faculty in one of the great cultural centers in the world.

London thrives, and our students take full advantage of this wonderful city as a classroom, participating actively in its vibrant historical, artistic, and cultural venues. At the threshold of continental Europe, we introduce our students to the background and experiences that will create the international citizens of tomorrow.

Our curriculum offers the challenge of high expectations, the excitement of engaging learning experiences, and the support of a caring community. We bring talented and dedicated faculty members to ASL, actively seeking to build a community of learners for everyone.

Samuel Johnson once ventured about London that “there is more learning and science within the circumference of 10 miles from where we now sit than in all the rest of the kingdom.” From studying architecture at a nearby Tudor castle to competing at the English-Speaking Union to exploring nature at the School’s outdoor education garden, our students come to see the truth of Johnson’s assertion. They learn to apply their newfound knowledge both inside and outside of the classroom, and they come to appreciate the importance of leadership and the value of service to a wider world. Best of all, they are happy to be here, and the smiles are wide.

Welcome to ASL!
