ABOUT OUR SCHOOL
IES Linköping has a great pedigree and is well rooted in the community of Linköping. For 20 years the school has been the centrepiece of the beautiful park which leads to Länstyrelsen. It used to be the old teacher academy from LIU so the history of education runs deep and is rooted in the walls
What IES stands for, the tough love and high academic expectations is something which really connects to this heritage and for me personally it is the base of any good education. I used to work as a teacher at this very school before I went abroad to be the principal at Svenska Skolan in Lisbon and during the time outside of IES I often found myself using the word “we” whenever IES was discussed. That is why, when I got this opportunity I was not only happy and proud, but also filled with the feeling of homecoming. I firmly believe that what we do and what we stand for is a clear path to academic success. I am not saying it will be easy but we have all the tools we need, great teachers, our ethos and fantastic students. Together with the parents we will give the students the best foundation for development to reach the high academic goal which they set for themselves.
Being a parent myself, I know what challenges you might face and at times you need a helping hand, and this is our mission. Our only reason for coming to work every day is simply to put your child, our student, in focus. If it weren't for them, we would not be here and every single one of us has chosen this job because of that. To see the development over time in a student is the most rewarding feeling there is. That is why we are here!
I also feel confident about the future. When other organisations are downsizing we are transforming our school to an F-9 school and have signed a 20 year contract with our landlord which shows that we believe in not only do we believe in what we do but also in Linköping. If you want to take an active part of this journey, please contact the PTA and become an active member.

Every morning I will be in front of the school between 7:45 and 8:05. If you want an informal chat, please do not hesitate to come and talk to me.
