It is an independent day school for boys and girls. There are 1,370 students aged between four and 18 years. This was the school’s third standard inspection. The last inspection was in February 2013. Inspection report: The American School in London, 20–22 March 2018 Page 9 of 12 It was judged to be providing an outstanding education in both of its previous standard inspections. Since the previous inspection, there have been changes to the senior leadership team and the trustees have appointed a new chair. The current headteacher took up her post in July 2017. The school does not use alternative education provision. There are no pupils currently on roll with an education, health and care plan. The school follows an American curriculum and is structured into three phases: lower, middle and high schools. The school is accredited by the American Middle States Association of Colleges and the Council of International Schools. The school is a member of the National Association of Independent Schools, the Council of International Schools and the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education. The school is operating outside of its registration agreement, as it is educating 20 pupils above the number for which it is registered.
Due to number of reforms to GSCE reporting introduced by the government in 2014, such as the exclusion of iGCSE examination results, the official school performance data may not accurately report a school’s full results. For more information, please see About and refer to the section, ‘Why does a school show 0% on its GSCE data dial? In many affected cases, the Average Point Score will also display LOW SCORE as points for iGCSEs and resits are not included.
Schools can upload their full GCSE results by registering for a School Noticeboard. All school results data will be verified.
