Skellefteå municipality has announced that it would welcome Internationella Engelska Skolan, IES, to open a school in the city in 2019 and has invited IES to run such a school in the former buildings of Brännanskolan. The move would be dependent on a contract being signed following a formal decision from IES.
Jörgen Stenquist, Vice CEO of Internationella Engelska Skolan, said: “We have wanted to open a school in Skellefteå for a number of years, and we are delighted by the enthusiastic welcome that we have received from families, politicians and the local business community. Skellefteå is a town with a bright future, working to attract multinational companies and with that comes the need for a first-class education. We want to be part of the solution, providing the quality education which is needed."
