IES: Celebrating 25 years of excellence in education

On Saturday, Internationella Engelska Skolan celebrated its 25th anniversary of providing quality education to students in Sweden. I was honoured to be amongst the 400 plus guests gathered in the Blue and Gold Halls of City Hall in Stockholm to celebrate IES and the success of our founder Ms Barbara Bergström. What an amazing person and entrepreneur. It was a magical evening of festivities. A superb dinner fit for noble laureates. Outstanding entertainment from IES alumni, staff, student choirs and performers.

Welcome to IEGS!

Whether you are a returning student or a new student to our learning community, I wish to extend a warm welcome to Internationella Engelska Gymnasiet (IEGS) for the academic year 2018/2019. At IEGS we are prepared to help our students on their life-long learning journey, both academically and socially. Our goal is to support our students and equip them with the skills needed so that they can be the best version of themselves, reaching the goals that they are setting. Today, August 15th, we welcome our first year students to IEGS!

Summer Time!

Warm, sunny, long days. Hints of summer smells like coconut oil, pineapple, mints and strawberries. The sound of flip flops and gulls. There is no doubt about it, but summer time is here! And with that, the academic year of 2017/18 is over for us here at IEGS. I wish to thank our students and super hero like staff team of teachers and administrators for making this another memorable academic year. Your commitment, dedication and hard work is what makes all the ideas in school, small or large, come to life and be such a success. Thank you once again for making the year a great one!

Spring has sprung!

With Art Exhibitions, Open Houses, third year theatre productions, successful language competitions, school trips and exchanges, Nordic debate, model UN, IHC dance, chess, ensemble, basketball and not to forget World Book Day and introductions to research on the EU BigO project complete, what is there left to do at IEGS this spring term!

Welcome Back To School!

I wish to extend a warm welcome to our new and returning students to IEGS for the academic year of 2017/18. All signs point to another incredible and productive school year. Our skilled and devoted staff have been planning and preparing for our student’s return. Our enthusiastic administration team have been registering new students, ordering needed materials and updating student files. Our hard working and conscientious custodians have spent the entire summer thoroughly cleaning and painting the facility.
We are ready for the year ahead!
 

School’s out for summer!

As always at IEGS, it has been a very busy term, and well, a busy year overall, with a whole range of events and activities taking place. On June 2nd, we were the first school in Södermalm to congratulate and bid farewell to their third year students. Congratulations to our IEGS class of 2017!

Goodbye to 2016 from Dr Heimeier

Christmas break is here!
 
THANK YOU students and staff for a memorable Autumn term. You are both deserving and ready for some rest! We have been busy! Indeed, we had a beautiful Lucia celebration, house suppers, shows, project week, acts of kindness, science fiction fikas, decorated hallways and generous donations of food and clothes for our school’s Stockholm Stadmissionen drive– and that was all during December!
Truly international.
Outstanding teachers.
Safe environment.
Thanks to our international atmosphere we have a vibrant and supportive school community, where we believe that a student’s well-being is necessary for effective learning. We strive at all times to provide a safe and supportive, as well as an academically challenging, environment in which to study. Learn more ...
