Our Story

In August 2009, Internationella Engelska Skolan Sundsvall opened its doors with 250 students from grades 6 to 9 and 25 staff members.

The school started with a clear vision:

A strong focus on English

Creating a safe and calm learning environment

High academic expectations

The school, which is located across from Himlabadet in Sundsvall, is in a beautiful century-old building that has an English Oxford type architecture. We are part of a growing company which now consists of 30 schools across Sweden and England. Through hard work and dedication to succeed from both students and staff, we expanded to include years 4 and 5 in 2011. Today our family consists of 765 students and 88 staff members, making us the biggest middle school in Västernorrland.  

In 2015, 9 out of 10 students and 99% of parents said they would recommend our school; teachers said the same. Each year our surveys have shown that between 97% and 99% of our students feel safe at school and also feel that they can concentrate during lessons. In 2015, 99% of grade 9 students graduated with qualification to attend gymnasium.

We are a school that is always developing and striving to provide the best education and learning environment possible for our students. We look forward to many more years of success in Sundsvall!
