Planting the Apple Tree

Apple tree IES Sundbyberg

We have had two busy weeks here at IES Sundbyberg. Just in time before the cold hit the apple tree was planted in the ground along with some other plants around our school. We also received our new swings that has been put up on the schoolyard, and the new reception is finally in place. 

The last week before the fall break we are taking the oportunity to celebrate both the United Nations Day and Halloween. 
Please read more about this under our school blog and on SchoolSoft.

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!

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!

Ready for school start in August!

School Sundbyberg

Our new school, IES Sundbyberg is getting ready for the school start in August.

During the summer the builders will complete the construction of the school and the school yard and we will move in, step-by-step, and get everything organized.

Everything is moving forward according to plan and we will work hard to make sure that things are in place in time for the school start. If any delays or other obstacles occur during the process we will do the utmost to fix them. I do ask for your patience and support if there is anything not entirely in place the first day.

On the 22nd of August we will open the school and we look forward to seeing all new students, parents, staff and teachers for the Grand Opening.

Have a really nice summer and take care!

Welcome to IES Sundbyberg!

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

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.
