We’ve just completed a fantastic first year with the largest start up in the organisation. Demand for places at IES Kista continues to increase and as of today we have 2998 students waiting for a place at IES Kista. For this reason, in August 2016, we have decided to expand the school from 18 classes, 550 students to 25 classes, 750 students.
In order to accommodate all of the students we will be moving into the ground floor on the other side of our building where will have 10 new classrooms, 2 art rooms, 2 textile rooms. We will also have an additional playground which will include a large football court, a basketball court, outdoor table tennis tables, trampolines and gymnastic bars.
The existing building will have a new library and 4 science labs, 2 wood work rooms. We are also in the process of converting an existing auditorium into our second gym hall. All classrooms and group rooms will be fully equipped with projectors, screens and sound systems. The learning centre is also expanding.
We have completed our recruitment for the next academic year and are pleased to advise that we now have ten qualified Swedish teachers with lärarelegitamition on our team.
We have additional teachers in every other department as well.
We have also increased our Student Care and Development Team. We have employed three special teachers who will be focusing on Mathematics, English and Swedish and we have an additional counsellor and nurse. We also have a career counsellor and have extended support on the playgrounds and recreational areas with a new member of the Student Development team who will focus on these areas.
