World Teachers' Day!



World Teachers' Day

The 5th of October is the International Teachers' Day and we surprised all our teachers with flowers made by ms Uhlén and a big applaud. The applaud is part of the Guiness World Record to be the biggest applaud in the world initiated by Bonnier Education.

Thank you for being teachers and thank you for being teachers at IES Sundbyberg!






From the Principal

Thank you


Thank you for all support and engagement during the startup.

The school has started and we are up and running according to schedule.

I am very proud of all our students - they are adapting to new routines quickly and help out when needed.

The development of the school is also progressing and every week we see new things being installed. This week the flagposts and the fence in the stairs to the entrance got installed. Step by step the school is being completed! A wonderful journey to be part of. Welcome to have a look when you pass by!

New schools in Sundbyberg and Länna officially opened

Nearly 600 students lined up behind their mentor teachers and marched proudly into their classroom as Internationella Engelska Skolan opened two new 4-9 schools in the autumn of 2018.

IES Sundbyberg opened as part of an ambitious new urban development which will see the Valla Park area reinvigorated, while IES Länna is a brand new, custom-designed and built school on a road which has only just been opened.

Both schools have been opened in cooperation with their home municipality, working together with Internationella Engelska Skolan to provide high-quality education to students in areas where there is a need for more schools going forward.

At the opening of Internationella Engelska Skolan Sundbyberg, principal Ms Sofia Kinberg (above) spoke to a gathering of students, parents and staff.

She said: “There are a lot of new things ahead of us. Apart from our school, at the same time, IES celebrates its 25th anniversary this year.  Mrs Bergström started the first school in 1993 and today we are opening our 36th school here in Sundbyberg.

"My goal is, when we stand here in June at our graduation day and look back at this day, that we are proud, that we feel we have grown and developed together, and we say 'yes, we did it’. 

"I look forward to working with you, students and parents.  For 25 years IES has delivered quality and from today you will be the next ambassadors to pass that responsibility forward.  Students, teachers, staff, I know that you will be outstanding.”

Two days earlier, before planting the traditional apple tree and cutting the ceremonial ribbon to officially open Internationella Engelska Skolan Länna, principal Ms Julie Kelly (right) told the assembled students: “Today I am so happy and excited to be standing in front of these beautiful buildings that have now become our school and our new home.

"What’s even more exciting for me today is you. You, along with all your phenomenal teachers here at IES Länna, are going to make this into the school that we have all dreamed about.

“When you walk in through these doors today you will not just be an IES Länna student, you are joining the IES family. Welcome home."

Internationella Engelska Skolan has opened 27 new schools around Sweden in the past ten years, and is committed to expanding in the future, helping municipalities around Sweden to meet the great need for new school places.

At the opening of IES Länna Ms Annette Brodin Rampe, Chief Executive Officer of Internationella Engelska Skolan, added: “This year we are opening two new schools in IES, one here in Länna and one in Sundbyberg. That means that this year we are more students than ever in the IES family; there will be more than 25,000 students in Internationella Engelska Skolan.

“Thank-you all of you that have chosen to come here and have chosen our school, I think one of the reasons why you chose our school is that year after year we deliver much better results than any other school and our students are succeeding with their work at school. The reason why we can do that is we focus on having a safe and calm environment in our schools.”

Ms Barbara Bergström, founder and vice chairman of Internationella Engelska Skolan (right, with two students planting an apple tree) also addressed the crowds at both events.

She said: “I feel secure that each and every student is in the best of hands, and I am grateful to you the parents who are giving us the trust that the most precious things in your lives, the wellbeing of your sons and daughters, you are giving that to us, I am deeply grateful for that trust.”

Our Grand Opening

The 22nd of August will be the first day of school for students and we will start the day with our official grand opening.

We are honoured that Ms Bergström will open our new school and participate in the ceremony.

After the ceremony, students will start their school day and parents may leave.

The school is nearly ready for its opening, and we are putting the finishing touches in place when it comes to the schoolyard and surroundings.​​​

We look forward to meeting you and to welcoming students to IES Sundbyberg.

Summer update

School Sundbyberg

At the beginning of August all teachers and staff will start work to get ready for the school start on the 22nd of August.

We will together get the school organized as well as plan the academic school year we have ahead of us.

The intake process is almost done and the six classes we have for the first school year are nearly filled. If there are any changes in the intake (for example any one moving and leaving their place during the summer) there will be an opportunity of a place for those who have been in the queue the longest. We will contact you during the summer if any places become available in any of the classes.

If you have any questions during the summer please email or call ms Sofia Kinberg, the Principal directly, 073-4020064

Have a really nice summer!
