About the school

The Swedish School in London was founded in 1907 and has a long tradition in educating Swedish students in London. In 1976 we opened the present site in Barnes, which now homes the Primary and Secondary schools. The Sixth Form is located in Richmond at the American International University in London.

We offer education at all stages, from Primary School to Sixth Form. Our teaching takes place in small groups and our experienced and qualified teachers play an active role in every pupil’s development. The school is run like an English private school as a non-profit organisation and has a Board elected by the parents.

At the Swedish School in London we offer pupils high quality education in an open environment, in which we all listen to each other. Pupils at the school are perceived by the outside world as having high social skills, and these skills help them to achieve very good academic results.

We follow the Swedish course plan and the Swedish grading criteria. As in the case with all schools back in Sweden, we are under the supervision of Skolverket – The Swedish National Agency for Education – but because we are formally seen as an English school we also conform to English school standards, supervised and inspected by OFSTED – The Office for Standards in Education in the UK.

At the Primary School there are currently 150 pupils and the secondary school has 140; approximately 100 of whom are exchange students.
