Construction Update

Construction Update

Wow! What progress! Just a few short weeks after my first site visit, the main building on campus that will house most of the classrooms, offices and the matsal, is up! Once again, I was amazed by the professional work done by our building firm, Turako. I am anxiously awaiting my next site visit to see the new progress!

Intake in Progress

Intake in Progress

At last...our student intake has begun! Next week, students with guaranteed spots at IES Länna for the 2018-19 school year will receive an acceptance letter in the mail. It is very important that those letters are returned to the school as quickly as possible to:

Julie Kelly
Internationella Engelska Skolan AB
Nytorpsvägen 5A
183 71 Täby

It is imperative we receive acceptance letters back as soon as possible so we can continue the intake process. It is also important for us to know which students will decline their place, as we have hundreds of students in the queue anxious to begin at IES Länna. In early April, after we have determined how many students have declined their places, we will contact the next students in the queue.

Please do not hesitate to email us at info.lanna@engelska.se if you have any questions or concerns. I am very excited to begin enrolling students and officially welcoming them to IES Länna!

Best regards,

Julie Kelly

Principal

Construction Progress at IES Länna

Construction Progress at IES Länna

What a transformation! I have been watching the progress at Lunnarevägen 1 from a distance for several weeks, and I was shocked when I arrived at the building site yesterday. The second building--which will be our main building with offices, general classrooms, and matsal--is now partially completed. As the building itself is being built off-site and transported to our campus, progress on-site will now be very quick and very obvious. 

As for the other building, which houses our gym and specialized classrooms, interior work has already begun. Some corridors have already been painted, and several rooms have already been equipped with necessities and small details.

Turako, the company building our beautiful school, has done an amazing job both on and off the job site. Progress on the building is very much on schedule and we are excited to see how the building changes over the next few months! I will continue to visit the site periodically to see progress and collaborate with these fabulous professionals.

Looking forward to meeting you!

Looking forward to meeting you!

Hello! Some of you may have seen a presentation about me, but to most of you, I am a still a stranger. Let's change that! 

My name is Julie Kelly, and I am the principal for the International English School in Länna. I am ecstatic to be back in Sweden! When I'm not working on recruitment and planning for the August 2018 school start, I am trying to get acquanited with the area and am enjoying Swedish life with my family. (We are very fond of all the paths for walking and jogging. One does not find those frequently in the U.S.!)

I would also love to meet you--students, parents and teachers--who hope to join our IES Länna family! Since our school building is under construction, I don't have a work space in the Länna area. However, I'd very much like to chat about the school with you. Please call or email me (see details below) if you'd like to connect within the next few weeks. I can't wait to get to know you!

Hiring Teachers from Around the Globe

Hiring Teachers from Around the Globe

The school building for IES Länna may not be complete, but we are making great strides in finding amazing teachers to begin in August! I just returned from a trip to Vancouver, Canada in search excellent, qualified teachers for our subjects taught in English. While Vancouver is beautiful (just look at that photo!), many teachers are eager to teach abroad and are very interested in the possibility of moving to Sweden. We found several teachers that we hope to bring to International English Schools all over Sweden, and a few that would like to join us at IES Länna in the fall. We look forward to welcoming them in August!

Principal chosen for IES Länna

Principal chosen for IES Länna

A competent and experienced educator with a strong history at Internationella Engelska Skolan has now been chosen as the Principal of IES Länna.

American Ms Julie Kelly, who has been Assistant Principal at our successful school in Halmstad, has agreed to lead the brand new 4-9 school.

She will start work in January and making sure that the construction of the building and recruitment of teaching staff go smoothly will be at the top of her list of her priorities.

She said: “My name is Julie Kelly, and I am excited to join you in Länna as your principal at the International English School. What an adventure we are going to have together.

“I am an American and have spent most of my life in the United States, but I have spent six years in Sweden learning about the culture, language and lifestyle and am proud to call this country my home as well. I am delighted to return to Sweden with my husband and two young sons in January to begin work with the new school and learn more about the Länna area.”

Ms Kelly first joined IES in 2009 as an English teacher at our school in Jönköping, where she also became head of year eight.

She moved on to become Assistant Principal of our school in Halmstad when it opened in 2012, and over the next three years contributed greatly to the success of the school. In 2015 she and her family moved back to the United States of America, but now she is keen to return to Sweden and IES.

Mr Fredrik Åkerman, acting CEO of Internationella Engelska Skolan, said: ”In Ms Kelly we have found a capable leader to lead our new school in Länna. She knows the organisation inside and out and I am sure that she will be an exemplary principal, which is so important in developing a new school. She is a real asset and I am pleased that she is as keen to return to IES as we are to have her.”

IES Länna will open in August 2018. To join the queue to attend the school please click here.
