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
