Welcome from the principal

Mike Westhead

Dear all,

Mike Westhead, originally from England, but have lived in Sweden since 2007.

This is my tenth year of employment for IES and my third school, having started my employment working as a PE teacher at IEB Bromma before being a part of
the founding management team at IES Liljeholmen when it opened in 2014.

I live in Stockholm with my wife (also a teacher) and two children. I have a passion for working with students and school development and will ensure that IES Upplands Väsby continues to grow into the fantastic school that we promised it to be when we opened two and a half years ago.

In my spare time I am very active and still compete in triathlons and believe that having goals outside of school keeps me engaged when I am at work. I’m also the guy that bikes to work every day, regardless of the weather, so if you see me from your car, wave hello to cheer me on in the gloomy Swedish winter.

Kind regards,
Mike Westhead
