Safety and Security

Safe, natural, light and bright!

Phase 1 completed and operational. Phase 2 and 3 to come!


Our Early Years section was built on a greenfield site in Kanokodai in a delightful lightly residential area with open countryside, nature and abundant clean fresh air on our doorstep. It is comprised of six classrooms, a Nurse Station, Canteen, Library, Offices, Conference Room, Playground and Car Parking. The building is designed in such a way that children feel the natural environment surrounding them via many exposed wooden beams and large windows attracting substantial natural light.


On site we also have a professional–standard, full-sized soccer pitch for sports and other outdoor activities.


Ascot International School Japan is built on a very secure foundation, a site used as an earthquake evacuation centre in the past. Its elevation and open aspect ensures it is a safe location in relation to the range of seismic and weather events which can affect Japan from time to time.


The safety of our children is a priority. An intercom system allows controlled access to the site and an additional check allows entry to the Early Years building, which is surrounded by a high fence for security purposes. All visitors must sign in and wear a visitors badge while on the premises.  24/7 security is provided by Secom.

At the end of the day children are dismissed by Class Teachers only to parents or designated caretakers known to the school. Car parking is available on site.
