Welcome to our digital tour

Welcome to our digital tour

The doors to IES Kungsbacka will open in August 2021. The school is located in central Kungsbacka and will have excellent facilities tailored for IES. In a few years, the school will have three classes for each year – from förskoleklass to year nine.

Are you curious what life is like at IES? Do take the time to do a digital tour in some of our other schools. Here you may find several films which we hope will provide you with insight of what we, our students and their parents consider to be important in creating a good school.

Webinar - What to expect at IES Kungsbacka - first school meeting for students and their guardians.

Dear parents, guardians and students.

On 6 May, we will be holding a digital event for all new students from 6pm until 7:30pm. We strongly recommend that all who are able to attend take part.

You will be able to log into the event at: Webinar IESK

I, together with my team (Ms Ingelsten & Mr Bailey), look forward to giving a presentation explaining what to expect on a day-to-day basis, so that you are ready for a fantastic start at your new school. Among others we will address….amongst other things:

  • School term dates, the building, organisation of the school and our 3 year plan for IES Kungsbacka
  • Early years and our pedagogy - in-schooling and fritids
  • Behaviour - safe calm environment - what to expect
  • Expectations of the school regarding parental involvement
  • Languages - native languages and modern languages - Swedish/Swedish as Second Language?
  • Videos from other schools
  • Our Teachers

If you have questions you will be able to ask them using the chat function.

I would really like to meet you in person, and I hope it will be possible to hold a physical event before autumn term starts.

I look forward to meeting you, at least digitally, soon.
