Where teachers can teach and students learn.
  • Command of English

    Children should learn to command the English language, not just know it, at an early age.

  • Safe and Orderly Environment

    Order, structure and safety are necessary prerequisites for learning.

  • High Academic Expectations

    Our conviction is that every child can achieve success irrespective of social background.

Response to Lärarnas Riksförbund - How IES attracts outstanding teachers

A recent survey of some members of Lärarnas Riksförbund has resulted in a report suggesting IES pays low salaries. We don’t recognise our organisation in figures presented as a result of the survey.

Internationella Engelska Skolan is committed to finding and recruiting the best teachers in Sweden and from around the world. Across IES today 86 per cent of our teachers are qualified.

Our remuneration policy is clear - we provide attractive compensation which is in line with the jobs market for teachers. At the same time we live up to the collective agreement which has been made with the unions. Compensation for IES staff is competitive and we ensure that it remains so, as otherwise we would not recruit or retain the qualified, dedicated and professional teachers who educate our students.

New schools in Länna and Sundbyberg 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.

Independent review carried out by Friskolornas Riksförbund

The association of Swedish Free Schools, Friskolornas Riksförbund, has commissioned auditors Deloitte to carry out an independent review of 20 municipalities, in order to determine the extent to which funding principles are applied consistently.

The review has revealed differences in the way municipalities interpret the rules under which they must operate, leading to different models for resource allocation and for decisions about the school voucher level.

Recognising Talent

Coming to work for Internationella Engelska Skolan could just be the first step in your career with us. The organisation has a proven track record of promoting key staff from within and prides itself on recognising talent.

Welcome From The Founder

To speak English "well" is not enough in today´s world, writes Ms Barbara Bergström, the American science teacher who founded the English School in 1993.

Young Swedes should acquire a total inner security when speaking English. Our schools offer the best environment for achieving this. An important part of our success is that we provide a secure environment for teaching and learning. Schools should have a calm environment where teachers can teach and students learn.

These founding ideas have laid a solid ground for success. Internationella Engelska Skolan is today the largest free school organization at the compulsory level ("Grundskolan") in Sweden. Some 24 000 students attend our 34 schools around the country.

Careers

We recruit the best teachers from around the world.

Our schools are places where teachers can teach and students can learn.  This is possible  because of the strong emphasis Internationella Engelska Skolan places on creating a safe and calm environment which is conducive to teaching and learning. That environment helps everyone to concentrate on their lessons.

All of our staff pull together to create the best learning environment through the school so that rather than using time and energy to establish the preconditions for learning, our teachers are able to step into the classroom knowing that their lessons will start on time and then run smoothly and without disruption.
