We believe Learning new languages helps to create understanding and encourage a respect for others
For our youngest students, the language of instruction is mostly Swedish. The amount of lessons taught in English increases during the years with up to 50% being taught in English in the higher grades.
As they move through the school and gain confidence, additional foreign and mother tongue languages are also introduced, enabling students to further develop their linguistic abilities.
We value the diversity of our community and the importance of our families' native language
Mother Tongue Languages
We value the diversity of our community and understand the importance of supporting language learning both inside and outside the curriculum. Our Mother Tongue Programme offers a way of further progressing your child’s language development.
The programme consists of a range of Mother Tongue Classes held after school – the programme is open to native or near-native speakers from Year 1 to 9.
Mother Tongue classes are for children who have already had a substantial amount of exposure to a language, this could be through attending school in another country or using it daily with family members.
Learning new languages helps to create understanding and encourage a respect for others.
Languages & Cultures

Children start by learning Swedish from the age of four, developing both their language skills and an appreciation of their home country.
We deal with children of all levels, from those who do not speak or understand a word, to those who simply need a little extra support with spelling or grammar. We are very practised in assessing children coming from different educational backgrounds and systems and being aware of how that can initially impact on their learning in the classroom.
Our staff are extremely experienced in welcoming children and parents from all around the world for whom English is not their mother tongue.
