Valla Park - IES in Sundbyberg

Valla Park - IES in Sundbyberg

The new school is opening up in August for grade 4 and 5 with a total of 6 classes. The school will open in two steps. During the first year we will open for 4 and 5th graders and the second year fully-equipped for grades 4-9.

The construction of the school is moving forward on schedule.

During our first year we will run the school in an area of the building which has been completed and which is secluded from the rest of the construction area. During the first school year the rest of the school area will be finalized.

Our ambition is that the entire school will be completed by August 2019.

IES Sundbyberg öppnar upp för årkurs 4 och 5 i Augusti 2018

IES Sundbyberg öppnar upp för årkurs 4 och 5 i Augusti 2018

Till er som ansökt om en plats i årkurs 4 och 5.
Vi har just påbörjat vårt intag av årskurs 4 och 5. De vårdnadshavare vars barn är placerade långt fram i vår kö har blivit kontaktade via mejl där de fått information om att de har blivit erbjudna en plats hos oss. Detta mejl kommer att följas upp av ett fomulär där de måste göra ett aktivt val om de önskar behålla sin plats. Formuläret skall skrivas under och returneras till vår skoladministratör Ms Karin Uhlén. Om vi inte får in svar inom den tidsram som finns angiven i formuläret så kommer platsen att erbjudas till nästa elev i vår kö.

 

De vårdnadshavare som ansökt om en plats för sitt barn i årkurs 4 eller 5, men ännu inte mottagit ett mejl från oss, behåller sin plats i kön. Om lediga platser uppstår under vår intagningsproccess kommer vi kontakta de elever som står näst på tur i vår kö via mejl.

 

Till er som ansökt om en plats i årkurs 6-9.

På grund av förseningarna i byggprocessen av området (Valla Park), startade alla byggprojekt senare än planerat. Detta påverkar dessvärre färdigställandet av vår skola inför skolstart i augusti och vi kommer därmed att öppna upp skolan i mindre skala. Vi kommer inte att ha ett intag till årskurs 6-9 2018/2019.

 

Vi planerar att öppna upp skolan för samtliga årskurser, 4-9, i augusti 2019.


De elever som ansökt till årskurs 6-9 kommer att finnas kvar i vår elevkö inför kommande år. Vår elevkö öppnade i november 2016 och vi kommer anta elever i tur och ordning efter år, månad och dag som de ställt sig i kö till oss. På IES Sundbyberg tillämpas även syskonförtur.

Teachers and staff recruited

Teachers and staff recruited

There has been a huge interest for working at IES Sundbyberg. After an intensive period of recruitment I am proud to announce that we finally have our new team appointed. The team is a mix of qualified, experienced and international, as well as Swedish, staff and teachers. Welcome all of you!

We have all started to plan and organise for the school start in August.

Principal chosen for IES Sundbyberg

Principal chosen for IES Sundbyberg

An experienced manager with a background in schools as well as the communication business has been chosen as the Principal of Internationella Engelska Skolan’s new school in Sundbyberg.
 
Ms Sofia Kinberg is a qualified principal with an economic and school management master's degree. She has held management positions working internationally in the public and private sector and recently moved back to Sweden after living and working in London. Now she is bringing the experience and the managerial skills developed throughout her career to IES Sundbyberg.
 
She said: “Management and leadership is universal. It is all about how to lead and manage an operation, no matter if it is a factory or a school. We work with people and leadership is the key for success to bring out the best of each person - staff, student and teachers. At IES our ethos is the foundation of how we perform and we are proud to have schools in Sweden which offer students bilingualism, high academic expectations and a safe and orderly environment. It is with great honour and respect that I undertake the role as the new Principal at IES Sundbyberg and I look forward to meeting and working with all new students, staff, teachers and parents.”
 
Ms Kinberg has worked within education with a wide variety of age groups within compulsory education, from kindergarten until the end of secondary school. She recently worked in school management at IES Bromma, as an Assistant Principal where she was a key part of the management team with a focus on school development and systematic quality work. As part of this role she was the line manager for student care, teachers and the heads-of-year in senior school.
 
The acting CEO of Internationella Engelska Skolan, Mr Fredrik Åkerman, welcomed her appointment as Principal in Sundbyberg.

He said: “Ms Kinberg is an exceptional candidate who brings a wealth of real-world management experience to the role.  When she first joined the company a year ago, we mutually agreed that the most important thing was that she work closely with one of our Principals, to ensure she learnt to transfer her skills back into school-management. With this in mind she has spent a year working closely with Mr Marcus Segerstedt, the Principal of our school in Bromma.”

The time spent in management at Internationella Engelska Skolan Bromma has been a good chance for Ms Kinberg to learn more about the organisation and its values, and also an opportunity to make her mark.

Mr Åkerman continued: “I have been impressed by how swiftly she has understood our organisation and by her professionalism. I am confident in her ability to lead our school in Sundbyberg, both during its development, and subsequently as a fully operational school.”

Ms Kinberg will officially take on her post as Principal of Sundyberg in January, and will then work closely with colleagues from Internationella Engelska Skolan’s head office in recruiting her team and overseeing the transformation of the building into a first-class school ready to accept its first students in August 2018.

By late spring, once Ms Kinberg has appointed capable administrators, the school will start to offer places to students who hope to start in August 2018. This will be done on a first-come, first-served basis.
