Boarding at TASIS

Our TASIS England boarding program supports and encourages students to gain independence, responsibility, respect, and resilience.

The TASIS England boarding program includes students aged 13 to 18 and is centered on the idea that young people of all nationalities and backgrounds can live, work, and learn together in a structured environment.

As they grow in personal responsibility and maturity, the TASIS boarder will learn to appreciate the cultures of others and will thrive in the diversity of backgrounds within our community. As they share experiences in the classrooms, on the sports fields, and in the boarding houses, they will develop life-long relationships.

What does TASIS England offer boarders?

The structure of the boarding program requires students to take responsibility for much of their lives. At the same time, interaction with staff members and other students in a residential setting allows our boarding students to improve their communication skills and learn the importance of respect for themselves and each other. In this environment, they will grow in personal responsibility, intellectual curiosity, and cultural awareness.

Our residential team regularly communicates with our international community of boarding parents, who often talk about their sense of belonging despite the distance. Wherever you are in the world, you will know that your child is valued and cared for as an individual in an environment that provides consistency and stability.

With more than 30 different nationalities and over 200 students in our boarding program, TASIS England provides a unique environment for learning and growth. As our boarders become more confident and independent, they learn to make good choices in their daily lives and find their own unique passions and purpose – all while forging life-long friendships with students from around the globe.
