IES Älvsjö PTA Sock Drive

Our wonderful IES Älvsjö PTA has organised a sock drive with Stadsmission. The school will be collecting new and slightly used (and clean) socks in reception. All socks will be donated to Stadsmission to support their work with the homeless population. It is a great opportunity for our students to give back to their community.


Socks can be dropped off in reception.  We will be collecting socks for Stadsmission until Tuesday, 17 December (last day of term).


Let's see how many socks we can collect!

The Start of the 2019-2020 Academic Year

It has been a great start to the 2019-2020 academic year! Our students have returned ready to learn. I think that we have been helped by the last of the summer heat wave.

We will be hosting our parents' evening on Thursday, 5 September. More information can be found on SchoolSoft and has been emailed to Year 4 guardians.

This is a great chance to meet the other guardians, meet the mentors, see the school and hear about the fantastic work our students and staff are doing. We will also hold a presentation on the whole school focus areas for the 2019-2020 academic year.

We hope to see you there!

It is almost time for the 2019-2020 school year to begin. Summer is nearly over and soon it will be time to start at IES Älvsjö.

Our staff are busy preparing the school and lessons for our students. This year, we will emphasise the main tenets of the IES philosophy: high academic expectations, bilingual education and tough love. We will be sharing more information when the students start.

Introduction Day a huge success

Thank you to all parents, students and teachers who made our very first Introduction Day a resounding success! It was certainly a pleasure to meet you all and to share our vision for IES Älvsjö.

The building is beginning to look and feel IES, as the contractors work diligently to ensure that our school is ready for August.

Feel free to check out our gallery for visual updates on the building.


Tack till alla föräldrar, elever, och lärare som gjorde vår första Introduktionsdag till en stor succé! Det var ett nöje att träffa er alla och att få möjlighet att dela vår vision av IES Älvsjö med er.

Byggnaden börjar allt mer se ut och kännas som IES och byggarbetarna arbetar för fullt för att se till att skolan är redo inför augusti.

Titta gärna i bildgalleriet för att se updateringar om byggnaden.

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.
