Principal's Welcome

 

Welcome to the British International School of Stockholm: a learning focused school which provides a warm, welcoming and supportive atmosphere to children from approximately fifty different nationalities. I hope that, as you browse our website, you gain a feel and understanding of our dynamic and vibrant learning community.

 

Established in 1980, we have built a reputation for excellence in both teaching and pastoral care, with high academic standards in a nurturing yet challenging environment, where the children feel safe and enjoy learning. As such, our school is the first choice in primary education for discerning parents in both the international and local communities.

 

Through our broad, balanced and stimulating curriculum, we aim to develop the knowledge, skills, understanding and attitudes which will help our pupils become lifelong learners and global citizens. Attributes such as critical and creative thinking, problem solving, risk taking and the ability to reflect on learning are important and transferable building blocks which will help our pupils accept the challenges of life in an ever changing world.

 

Our dedicated, highly-qualified class and specialist teachers, together with a high staff /pupil ratio, ensure that each child receives the individual attention and the support to enable them to achieve their educational potential in all areas of the curriculum. Their professional and caring approach to learning, based upon mutual respect, support and understanding, creates the ideal environment for children to develop high self-esteem and to develop confidence in themselves and their abilities.

 

We are very proud of our successful and forward thinking school, and whilst this website provides a flavour of our learning community, we encourage you to contact us arrange to visit the school and experience it first hand.

 

We look forward to meeting you at The British International School of Stockholm.

 

 

Yours sincerely

Carl Hutson

Principal
