"The best thing about IES Halmstad is that there are so many people, both teachers and students, from different parts of the world here. So, enjoy what you will learn about other cultures and countries! We also have a lot of rules and routines. We can still be rowdy here too, but it has consequences, which makes you think twice about how you behave."
Vilgot Hansson, year 8
"When I started here in the 4th grade, I didn’t know any English at all. But the teachers take everything from the beginning. So you learn the language very quickly and after a while you do not even think about it. The teachers are kind and strict! This makes the lessons calm and quiet."
Jupiter Gotare, year 7
"My previous school was much smaller and I had known everyone since preschool. So at first I thought it would be hard to make friends at such a big school like this. But the teachers are great and make sure that everyone has someone to be with. It’s fun to read so much in English. Even though you may not be that good at English in the beginning, you will be in time!"
Julia Bengtsson, year 5
"You learn English in a unique way here. You are surrounded by people who may not even know Swedish at all, so you are forced to learn and speak English. You get great support here from both teachers and other classmates. English will help me a lot going forward, both in upper secondary school and in the future."
Ludvig Lindholm, year 9

Most of our schools begin their intake for the following academic year in the autumn term. The length of the process depends on how quickly we hear back from families who are offered places.
Write to the school in question and let them know your queue ID number or personnummer and the information that you would like to change. You can find contact details for our schools here.
There are no fees to attend IES schools. Our schools are funded in the same way as those run by the municipality, through the Swedish tax system and the school voucher (skolpeng).
