Welcome to our digital tour

Welcome to our digital tour

The doors to IES Sigtuna will open in August 2021. We are currently building a completely new modern school building with everything required to offer students the ideal learning environment. The school is located in the area Sigtuna Stadsängar, a new and sustainable area being built just outside central Sigtuna.  In a few years, the school will have two classes in each year – from förskoleklass to year nine.

Are you curious what life is like at IES? Do take the time to do a digital tour in some of our other schools. Here you may find several films which we hope will provide you with insight of what we, our students and their parents consider to be important in creating a good school.

Update on the admission process

Update on the admission process

The intake for August 2021 is now being finalised, as we hear back from the last few families who have been offered places in certain year groups.

If your family has not received an offer yet this means the classes were filled before we reached the queue place you hold.

However, as we know from our long experience opening and running schools, it is normal for a small number of places to become available if some families change their mind, or move home.

If a place becomes available in the future we will contact those at the front of the queue for that year group.

Whether your child will attend our school, or another, we hope that they thrive.

MEET THE HEAD OF OUR ENGLISH DEPARTMENT - MS LOEANA VAN WYK

MEET THE HEAD OF OUR ENGLISH DEPARTMENT - MS LOEANA VAN WYK

My name is Loeana van Wyk. I will be teaching English in the upper school and also be responsible for the English department. I was born and bred in sunny South Africa  where I qualified as both a Primary and High School teacher. I've taught English and Speech and Drama at an English Primary School in South Africa.

I've always known that IES in Sweden has an outstanding educational system. My friend teaches at an IES school and from what I have heard and seen, I have no doubt in my mind that it would be an opportunity of a lifetime. I listened to the Principal, Ms Schäfer's address to the parents and learners and I knew that Sigtuna would be an outstanding school focused on the highest success, growth and achievement of both learners and educators.

I am looking forward to becoming an integral part of this school and the Sigtuna community with an open and engaging approach towards my colleagues, students and parents.

I would like to continue hiking and traveling through parts of Sweden that I have not yet discovered. I fell in love with Sweden, it's magical winter wonderland of snow, and the country's effective governance. I love reading and going to the theatre. 

My hidden talent is the ability to create a performance on the spur of the moment... Brace yourselves!.... Quote, unquote.

Dear parents, guardians and students,

The families that have received a place in our school will receive an email from us before the 5th of May outlining how the evening will work and also the digital link that will be needed to join.

There will also be time allocated during the webinar when guardians and students will be able to ask questions and receive answers to their questions directly from the School's Management team.

I will be accompanied by Mr Aaron Wallace (Assistant Principal), Mr Govind Bhalla (Academic Manager), Ms Georgia Hawker (Student Care Manager) and Ms Lia Österman (Student Administrator).

VÄLKOMMEN & INFORMATIONSKVÄLL: 5 maj 2021 kl. 18.00

Kära föräldrar, vårdnadshavare och studenter,

Vi kommer att ha ett digitalt webinar den 5 maj kl 18.00 till 19.30 för att välkomna våra IES Sigtuna familjer och studenter och för att ge information om skolstart i augusti och året framåt.

Familjerna som har fått en plats i vår skola kommer att få ett mejl från oss före den 5 maj som beskriver hur kvällen kommer att fungera och även den digitala länk som kommer att behövas för att gå med.

Det kommer också att tilldelas tid under webbseminariet när vårdnadshavare och studenter kan ställa frågor och få svar på sina frågor direkt från skolans ledningsgrupp.

Jag kommer att åtföljas av herr Aaron Wallace (biträdande rektor), herr Govind Bhalla (akademisk chef), Georgia Hawker (studentvårdsansvarig) och Lia Österman (studentadministratör).

Vi ser fram emot att vara med dig digitalt!

Sandy Schäfer
Rektor
IES Sigtuna
