Welcome to IES Järfälla!

Learn more about our school and how we deliver on the promises that IES makes to families.





Internationella Engelska Skolan Järfälla was established in 2002. We are a bilingual school for students in years 5 - 9, with two year 5 classes, and four classes in years 6 - 9. In total we have 560 students.

Our school offers a safe and calm learning environment where teachers can teach, and students learn. Half of our subjects are taught in Swedish by teachers with Swedish qualifications, and half by English-speaking staff with qualifications from UK, Australia, South Africa, Canada and USA .
Apart from our great teachers, our school has motivated support staff who are present in the corridors, give support during lessons and are available in the cafeteria during breaks.

We follow the Swedish curriculum, and prepare students for studies at gymnasium and beyond. We have high academic and social expectations of our students, and work together to see all our students well prepared for the future.

Find the answer to your question

Apply in just three steps:

  1. Click Join the Queue.
  2. Choose the school you want to apply for (Every school has its own queue. You can place your child in the queue from 1 February the year after they were born).
  3. Fill in the form including your details and those of your child so that we can stay in touch and let you know if a place becomes available.

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.

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).

We offer Spanish and French. Modern languages are part of the normal schedule at Swedish schools and all students are expected to study a third language.
