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.

News article by our founder Ms. Barbara Bergström

Ms. Barbara Bergström

Our founder Ms. Barbara Berström published a very interesting article on the rumours around independant schools and 'glädjebetyg' or grade inflation. Our teachers are dedicated professionals that always strive to achieve the main objective which is to educate our students. We always strive to remain true to our ethos which is to have high expectations on our students and to support them to achieve it. 

An interesting read written by a wise woman.

The Purple Chair

Storytelling, library

Ms. Schäfer introduces 'The Purple Chair'

The idea for this special chair in our library is serve as more than just a place to sit and read stories to our students. On this chair we intend to have many very special guests that will come and tell their life stories and pass on their wisdom to our younger generation. These stories will vary from different kinds of work experiences, or perhaps stories of foreign countries where they grew up or visited. Stories of interesting experiences of different cultures or just funny stories of how life can sometimes be unpredictable. We hope for these stories to enrich and broaden the minds of our students, to make them curious and adventurous and to inspire them to learn and explore the world. 

It is time...let the storytelling begin.
