Principal's Welcome


Welcome to the British International School of Stockholm. We are a learning focussed, student centred school that places your child at the centre of everything we do. Our holistic philosophy emphasises both the intellectual and personal development of our students.


Established in 1980, we have a reputation for excellence in academic and pastoral care. As such, our school is the first choice in education for discerning parents in both the international and local communities. Our broad curriculum and wide extra curricular programme ensures success from Reception class through to IGCSE and IB Diploma.


Through our curriculum and daily interaction with students, we develop the understanding and attitudes which help them to succeed in our ever changing world. We promote skills such as collaboration, critical thinking, compassion and creativity amongst others to ensure a high quality academic education is enhanced by learning how to learn. Our dedicated, highly-qualified class and specialist teachers, together with a high staff to student ratio, ensures that everyone receives the individual attention and the support to achieve.


We are proud of our successful and forward thinking school. We encourage you to contact us and arrange to visit the school to meet us in person.
