Internationella Engelska Skolan plans to open a new IES school in Österåker, and has signed a rental agreement with property company Nystad Stadsutveckling AB. The planned opening of the school will be in August 2023.
IES Österåker is planned as a two parallel F-9 school in a property that was previously a compulsory school, called Hackstaskolan, in central Österåker. When fully developed, it will have 600 students. Part of the school building will be demolished and replaced. Improvements will include a new manufacturing kitchen and a school restaurant. There is a gym hall next to the school building.
Anna Sörelius Nordenborg, CEO of IES, said: “We look forward to working together with Österåker municipality and Nystad to open a new school in Österåker. Many students from Österåker attend our school in Täby today, so we know that there is great interest in an IES school opening in Österåker.”
In order to open a new school in the property, Berga 6:35, the necessary permits, including a building permit, need to be in place.
