Dear Stakeholders,

As the Spring term 2018 comes to a close I would like to wish Students, Parents and Staff a very relaxing and enjoyable break. 

My sincere thanks to all those staff, students and parents who have contributed toward making our 2017/2018 school year such an excellent one.

Our year 9 students having achieved the highest grade point average ever at our school is further confirmation to me that this has been a truly outstanding  year.

I am sure I speak for everyone when I wish our year 9 students the very best for all that they undertake in the future. We all look forward to seeing our returning students again in August, relaxed and ready for another great school year.

 

Again have a great Summer,

Best Wishes,

It Will Soon Be Spring

Dear Stakeholders,

Welcome back to school after what I trust was for you was an enjoyable and relaxing Easter break.

Non teaching staff have once again been very busy during the break, renovating and improving our facilities. This time around we have focused on our middle school student room; with new style integrated tables and seating, a new smart TV in the quiet games area, a new reception desk in the pool table area and new oak flooring where needed. Our Junior School area has been painted in key areas in order to maintain our fresh and bright atmosphere. We have this Spring especially ourselves prioritised the clearing of grit and  gravel from our playground and walkways. We are also in this area, as with our ongoing painting of our school interior, not prepared to wait until the communal Landlord Sisab gets round to making our school area clean and fit for purpose.

We now look forward to the final 8 or so weeks of school and with everything that this entails. I am convinced everyone will do their utmost to ensure we together have a fantastic end to that which has thus far been an outstanding school year.

It will soon be Spring!

Again welcome back!

Welcome Back!

Dear Stakeholders,

Welcome back to IES Enskede after what I am sure was for you a fantastic holiday of fun and relaxation.

I am sure that this term will be every bit as positive and productive as last with our students and staff working hard together to see to it that everyone reaches the maximum of their potential.

Teaching staff returned to school today Monday and have been busy with in service training and getting ready for the return of our students tomorrow . Non teaching staff have also once again been busy around the school over the holidays with various building improvement projects, including the installation of two new high quality pool tables in the Junior School student room. I am sure our Junior School students will be very happy with this development.

Again Welcome Back,

Robert Clark

Welcome Back!

Dear Stakeholders,


A sincere welcome to the International English School Enskede to all who are new and a warm welcome back to existing students and parents.


I hope and trust that you have had a fantastic Summer and that you are well rested, looking forward to a fantastic successful school year.


Non teaching staff have been hard at work all Summer improving the school building. We have created a new school entrance reception area by F1, we have painted multiple stairwells, classrooms, toilets, doors and door frames, corridor plant boxes and much more. Lighting has also been changed in Middle school stairwells.


We have new chromebooks for staff and students throughout the school and new trolleys specially designed to carry a full class set of chromebooks. I am sure that these important resources will be put to very good use in coming years. A number of classroom projectors and screens have also been replaced as part of our ongoing process of improvement.


Teaching staff have been very busy last week and this, getting ready to receive students on Monday 21st August. I am confident that we will all have a fantastic school year and look forward to, together, once again embarking on our journey toward academic excellence and bilingualism.

 

Kindest Regards,

A few words

Welcome to the Internationella Engelska Skolan Enskede.

With only a few short weeks left of this academic year our school is now at full speed in all areas. There is so much that needs to fit into the last part of the Spring term that I sometimes wonder how we, each year, manage to get everything to fit. Students and staff are very busy with national tests, IGCSE examinations, end of term assessments, grading, reporting, academic competitions, sports days, class trips, house trips, graduation ceremonies, the prom, and much more.

With the recent great weather all at school begin to see the Summer holidays in the not too distant future. For our year 9 students, of course, there is the realisation that their amazing 6 year journey toward academic excellence and bilingualism with us here at IES Enskede is soon to be completed. Our year 9 students have now traveled that journey as described by me to them in the Aula all those years ago when our year 9`s were only 10..

I am sure that all at IES Enskede are fully committed to ensuring that we have an absolutely fantastic end to that which has been a truly outstanding school year.

Best Wishes,
Robert Clark

Dear Stakeholders,

Welcome back everyone! I trust that all have had a fantastic holiday and are looking forward to a fantastic Spring term.

School is, of course, already in full swing following the Christmas and New Year break. Teachers had two very valuable in service days before students returned, honing their pedagogical skills and preparing for what will surely be another highly successful term.

Staff working over the Christmas break have improved our wireless network coverage, painted rooms, and upgraded projector connections from VGA to HDMI in all classrooms. I am convinced that these improvements will be greatly appreciated by all.

Around the school Ms Wilson our Junior School music teacher has already begun working with our Junior School students on their next performance to be shown in approximately 7 weeks, "The Lion King". This will without doubt be yet another fantastic performance and I warmly recommend parents to attend.

Again a very warm welcome back to all.


Best Wishes,
Robert Clark

Greetings from the Principal

A Very Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year to you from everyone here at Internationella Engelska Skolan Enskede.

Students and staff have been working tirelessly of late ensuring a strong academic ending to an outstanding Autumn term. I am very pleased with our students` excellent progress which as always is a result of the skill, dedication and perseverance of all concerned. There is a truly positive focus around our school this year, with the IESE  house system giving our students real positive influence and the opportunity to participate. I am particularly pleased with the leadership roll taken on by our  student House Captains helping improve our school, expertly mentored by Mr. Ramsay Kinghorn. There have been many high points this term with fantastic events and student performances from both Junior School and Middle School actively supported by our very positive PTA.
 
I am sure that all are now looking forward to a well earned rest to recharge batteries ready for the new school year ahead. Spring term 2016 promises to be a truly great one as our school continues to improve from an already high level both academically and pastorally. Again, have a fantastic safe holiday and welcome back when school restarts for students on the 11th January.
 
Best Wishes,
Principal

Principal update September 2015

Dear Stakeholders,

All at IESE are delighted with the positive and enthusiastic start that our students and staff have made together here this school year. We truly have a school where teachers can teach and students can learn in an atmosphere of support and safety.

Our school recently hosted a visit by the government appointed School Commission who are looking into how swedish schools can be improved. Our owner and founder Barbara Bergström and Dr. Hans Bergström also attended, visiting lessons with the commission and taking part in the discussion that followed. One question asked by a commission member summed up my overall impression from the day and that question was: “Is it possible to recreate this IESE quality of educational experience for students in swedish state schools?”

This question precipitated a very useful discussion regarding possible future avenues of investigation for the commission.

At the recent Principal`s Conference at the new IES school in Kista IESE was recognised with a major award. This was for having achieved the best IES school results for year 9 swedish national tests with 92% of our students achieving the grade C or above. This is truly something for us to be proud of as many of our almost 30 schools throughout the country have the highest results in their region. Also very gratifying here is the re-confirmation that our students truly are bilingual as they leave us in year 9. My congratulations to all at IESE who contributed to this success.

I look forward to another fantastic and successful school year for all.

Best Wishes,

Robert Clark
Principal
