Frequently Asked Boarding Questions
An on-campus café sells Starbucks coffees and an extensive range of hot and cold snacks, such as sushi and cold drinks. There are also many popular local restaurants that deliver to the school.
We expect students to take part in this program, as we believe that enjoying London and England and having fun and memorable experiences are an important aspect of boarding life at TASIS. On an occasional basis, a student may check out from campus for the weekend to see family or friends.
On the very first weekend of each academic year, all boarding students are required take part in a weekend trip with their year group.
When do boarders have to return after the holidays? Boarders must be in their Dorm before 7 p.m. the day before classes begin. Students must arrange their own transport back to school.
A student may leave campus from Friday at 15:30 p.m. to Sunday at 19:00 p.m. if the following conditions are followed:
- Weekend checkout online permission must be submitted by 4 p.m. on the Wednesday before the weekend.
- The host responsible must be at least 25 years old.
- The School must receive an email or phone call from the host as an invitation, and an email from the student’s parent to support the overnight request.
Information for Parents
How do I arrange a visit to the School and my child’s dorm?
Please call the Head of Boarding (+44 1932 582 326) to arrange a visit.
How do I monitor my child’s academic performance?
Academic progress can be monitored on the LMS (online grade book) to which parents will have direct access through a Login and password. This information is sent early in the academic year.
The Head and Deputy Head of Boarding are the main points of contact for boarding related issues. Dorm Parents also play an important role in your child’s life, and they will write within the first few weeks of the start of the year to introduce themselves.
