Some additional information

Hello parents and students!

IES Älvsjö will open its doors on August 18th, 2016 for 370 students. These students will be divided in the following manner:

Grade 4 - 4 classes (120 students)

Grade 5 - 3 classes (90 students)

Grade 6 - 3 classes (96 students)

Grade 7 - 2 classes (64 students)

Modern language will be taught at our school from Grade 7 and the language choices are going to be French and Spanish.

Lunch will be prepared on site, and the school will be equipped with woodwork and textiles rooms, along with a P.E. hall.

Junior Club (fritids) will be offered (at a cost) to students who attend grades 4 and 5 and will be open until 17:00 every day that the school is in session. Junior club is closed holidays and breaks (at Sport Break, November break etc).

The first round of intake is almost at a close. Please note that we send intake letters via post. When we come to your child's name in the queue we will send you notification via post. We encourage those of you who have been offered a place at the school to submit your responses as soon as possible.

More information will be posted here as the Spring term progresses.

Intake has begun!

So exciting that there are so many families interested in our school!

The intake process has now begun and the first round of acceptance letters have been sent out. What's next? Please respond as soon as possible if you have been offered a place. Further information will be sent out to all students who have been accepted to our school.

We have many qualified professionals who have applied to IES Älvsjö, and the interview process is underway.

There have been requests from parents and students to visit the school. This is not possible presently. The entire structure is a building-zone and a hazard to unauthorized personnel. We kindly ask for your understanding in this matter.

Monica and I are always available to answer any questions you may have, so feel free to contact us via telephone or email.

The countdown is on! In just over five months we will open our doors and welcome 370 students in!

On site

Cold outside, cold inside...that about sums up the temperature update for us at Älvsjö.

In spite of this, the transformation is taking place at a remarkable rate. While the builders meet, plan and work, I have been busy choosing colors, wallpaper and recruiting staff.

Our newest staff member, Monica Nydahl, started with me at the school last Monday, 15th February. Monica is the Administrator at the school, and has been with the company for a considerable number of years, both as a teacher and administrator staff. Together we have begun the planning process, and our first round of intake letters should be sent out within the coming two weeks.
