Our Story

IES Kista in one of the newest schools in the Internationella Engelska Skolan family, opening up in the summer of 2015.

The start-up was the biggest ever undertaken by the organisation, with 18 different classes beginning from Years 4 to 8. Over the next three years the school will expand further, to eventually reach a size of 30 classes across Year 4 to Year 9 by 2018/19.

IES Kista is located in some of the former teaching buildings of the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) which have been renovated to a cost of over 50 million kronor to be suitable for school students. Such adaptations include a brand new sports hall, music studios and playground which is within a fully enclosed space within our school building.

The location, in the middle of Kista’s technology campus, is also a stone’s throw from the large Kista Galleria shopping centre and the Stockholm Metro system linking up with central Stockholm in twenty minutes.

As a part of the IES network, we teach approximately half of our subjects in the medium of English, and the other half in Swedish.  

Our working language within the school building is English, and we aim to promote the use of the English language wherever possible. We are blessed to have a staff and student body with a background across all areas of the globe, including Canada, Australia, India and many more.
