Dear Parents, Students and Staff at IES Kista,
After a challenging year, Mr Colin McGowan has decided to step down as principal of IES Kista as of Monday, May 7th. We are grateful for his leadership since starting IES Kista in August 2015 and wish Mr McGowan well in his future endeavors.
We are pleased to announce that Mr. Mikael Östling Huhta has now been appointed Principal of Internationella Engelska Skolan Kista, effective 7 May, 2018.
Mr. Östling Huhta is an educator with an impeccable track record who knows the IES organisation inside and out. He helped to open our highly successful school in Uppsala in 2011 and was the school’s Principal from 2012-2017 as it went from strength to strength. He holds Principal’s qualifications from Uppsala university, as well as a masters degree in education as a teacher of English and German. He also holds a Swedish teaching license. After a period working in digital educational development, we are delighted to welcome Mr Östling Huhta back to Internationella Engelska Skolan.
We are determined to restore the learning environment at our Kista school to what it was during its successful first two years and to the norms that IES stands for. A calm and secure school, with "tough love" is necessary for teachers to be able to teach and students to learn. We are convinced that Mr Östling Huhta is the right leader for this task and for a great school.
