ABOUT OUR SCHOOL

Meet Our Staff

All of our staff pull together to create the best learning environment through the school.

Our teachers are recruited from all corners of the world, within Sweden and internationally, to find the most competent and best-equipped pedagogues for each subject. As up to 50% of our subjects are taught in English from year 5 we seek to provide native-speaking English teachers - these subjects are focused on Mathematics, Science, Aesthetics and of course English. One of our organizational policies is to have all graduating grade 9 students fully bilingual. To achieve this we gradually introduce English-speaking pedagogues already from grade 1.
The international compilation of staff helps to give the students a cultural width and perspective.

Physical Education Teacher

''I believe that the significance of Physical Education in contemporary schools extends beyond merely fulfilling subject requirements and objectives. In today's sedentary society, it is truly remarkable that we provide all our students with dedicated time each week to engage in physical movement and exercise. I also aspire for our students to explore a diverse array of activities, as this will foster a lifelong dedication to training and maintaining good health.''
