Ms Allen taking over as Principal from June 1st

Dear Parents, Students and Staff at IES Uppsala,

Earlier this year Mr. Mikael Östling let the management of IES know that he has accepted a new role, away from education, and will leave IES Uppsala at the end of the school year. We are pleased to inform you that Ms. Hilde Allen has now been appointed Principal of Internationella Engelska Skolan in Uppsala, effective Thursday, 1 June, 2017.

Ms. Allen will be well known to you as the Assistant Principal of IES Uppsala. She played an important role in the successful start of the school in 2011, when she was the Academic Coordinator. She is an experienced and dedicated educator, who has worked in education since 2006, including at two schools in the UK as a teacher of science, and later at IES Bromma, from January 2009, where she worked as a science teacher and later as the head of the science department. She holds a Master of Science degree in Biochemistry from the University of Uppsala as well as teaching qualifications from both Sweden and the United Kingdom.

Mr. Östling will remain the Principal until Ms Allen formally takes up the post. They will work closely with the rest of the team at IES Uppsala to ensure a smooth transition as the school continues to provide the highest quality of education to students.

As well as welcoming Ms. Allen to her new role, we are sure you will join us in thanking Mr. Östling for his five years of leadership at IES Uppsala. We wish him every success in the future.

Kind regards,

Barbara Bergström Founder and Vice ChairmanRalph Riber CEO

From the Principal

Summer break is here!

Summer break is here! Students have finally started their holiday. We had some fantastic end of year ceremonies last Thursday with different performances and lots of awards. Then finally in the afternoon, we celebrated our year 9 during our graduation ceremony, with music, speeches and awards suitable for the occasion. Now the teachers are wrapping up before they also go on a well deserved summer break.

During the next two months we will be working together with the landlord to improve the ventilation in the school. We will also be repainting parts of the school as well as improving the Home Economics room. This is all in preparation for the 20th of August, when the students are welcome back to school.

Have a fantastic break and looking forward to a new academic year!

From the Principal

Summer is here!

Only 5 weeks to go and the warm weather has arrived. It is great to see the students outside on breaks again.

It’s been a busy winter and spring! I extend a special thanks to the PTA who again hosted Teacher Appreciation Days this term, thanking all teachers and staff for the work they do in school. The Student council has also hosted a couple of cafés raising funds which they are now busy deciding what to get for the school. This term also saw the the Performing Arts Show - Magic at IESU take place for the third time at Grand Theater in central Uppsala. This has now definitely become  a tradition of the school.

Now the all the National Tests have been completed which is a relief for all students. Let us enjoy the last few weeks of term, looking forward to the end of year ceremonies and Graduation on the 14th of June.
