The New School Rome teaches the English national curriculum of iGCSE and A Levels for pupils aged 3-18.


The New School Rome was founded in 1972 by a group of parents and teachers who wanted to create a school where academic excellence would be combined with attention to the individual and the development of personal and social responsibility. It is a non-profit making association.

The school serves the English-speaking community in Rome, providing English-language education for children age 3 to 18. The New School follows the English national curriculum and is a recognised examination centre for 2 major English examination boards, Edexcel (London) and CIE (Cambridge International Examinations). It is also a long standing member of COBIS (Council of British International Schools) and is recognised by the Italian Ministry of Education. The school prepares students to obtain the iGCSE qualification after key Stage 4 (age 16) and A Levels after Key Stage 5 (age 18).


School fees range between €9,950 to €18,400. To see a full overview including deposits and capital assessment fees, see the 2021-22 tuition fees here.
