Dear Guardians,

I would like to wish you all a welcome return after Sportlov.

Mr. Clark has now retired after a long and illustrious career as Principal of IES Enskede. Mr Clark has provided an outstanding example of effective school leadership throughout his tenure at IES, training multiple Principals, that have started their own successful schools.

It has been a truly honourable experience to have been mentored by him for the past 13 years and I intend to carry his vision into the next stage at IES Enskede.

This past term the staff at Enskede have been working hard to create a positive learning experience for all students and make school an engaging place of learning.

We will continue to focus on and develop further upon our 3 main pillars that are core to our success,

A safe and orderly school environment where teachers can teach and students learn. Order, structure and safety are necessary prerequisites for learning. A school characterized by discipline and calm learning conditions also signals respect for the value of education. “Tough love” became the motto for a school which is strict in norms for behavior, but simultaneously conveys love for the students and a strong will to help each child succeed. Practicing good manners and proper behavior in a workplace combined with an appreciation of the positive results of hard work prepares students for success in adult life.

High academic expectations and aspirations. Our conviction is that every child can achieve success irrespective of social background. This ambition to support every student to realize his or her own potential applies to those requiring special support to meet standards as well as the most gifted learners.

Command of English. English has become the world's common language, “the key to the world”. Children should learn to command the English language, not just know it, at an early age. Fluency is best achieved through language immersion, instructed by native English-speaking teachers in an international atmosphere.

I’m positive, that along with the already engaging students, PTA and staff, we all can work together to create the best possible school we can be.

Dear Stakeholders,

Welcome all to what I am sure will be yet another fantastic school year at Internationella Engelska Skolan Enskede. I trust that everyone is well rested after the amazing Summer of 2018 and ready for all that the school year 2018/2019 has to bring.

At school we have been busy throughout the break with all manner of building renovations. There has also once again been extensive painting and improvement work both inside the building and out, giving our school that essential bright, clean and cared for look.

Our landlord Sisab has also been busy renovating parts of our school building, and this work will continue well into the Autumn term. Renovation of damp proofing around the outside of our Aula and of the JS roof have been Sisab`s two main areas of focus. You will no doubt see the protective cover built over the JS section of our building to facilitate the JS roof work. Please be aware that our JS students will enter and leave school at the start and end of the school day via the entrance F5 while JS playground work is completed.

The time frame at present for reestablishing the JS playground is approx. 3 weeks from the start of term. Once finished our JS playground will be larger and have an artificial grass area which will without doubt be very much appreciated by our students. Our school has also been assured by Sisab that the roof renovation will not in any way impinge upon our school day.

Recent weeks have seen our staff very busy preparing for the impending student school start, including all manner of seminars and an all IES new staff day at Aula Medica with 600 participants. I have been very impressed by the level of enthusiasm and professionality shown by all our staff as we prepare. I am confident that our staff, both new and experienced are well prepared for, and looking forward to, an outstanding school year.

Again Welcome!

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,

Robert Clark

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
