Distance Education week 10

Distance Education week 10

In response to the recommendations and expectations outlined for compulsory schools (7-9) within the Stockholm region remote learning will be in effect for the whole of week 10 for grades 7-9 with students hopefully returning to school Monday 15th March.

This is to allow for students to follow the recommendations and guidelines of the Swedish health ministry. The school remains open for students to pick up materials if needed and also for students with special needs.


In addition, lunch will be available for students who may need it. A school lunch sign up form will be shared on Schoolsoft week 9.


We understand that this is a difficult time for everyone, and we truly appreciate your understanding and support.

Together WE Stand

Together WE Stand

Together We Stand is IES Bromma's Anti-bullying Project

The school is a social and cultural meeting place with both the opportunity and the responsibility to strengthen this ability among all who work there. Together we stand up against racism, gender discrimination, and bullying.

What is racism?
  • Racism is a culture, not just an act.
  • Behaviours, policies, rules, etc. that result in a continued unfair advantage to some people and unfair or harmful treatment of others based on race.
  • It has been created by the privileged to have power over the unprivileged.
How can racism be deconstructed?
  • To acknowledge that it exists in our society and within ourselves
  • It has to be actively prevented in the first place and should never be left unattended.
  • Since it has been created by the oppressor, the privileged, it is their responsibility to work together to abolish it.

No one should be subjected to discrimination on the grounds of gender, ethnic affiliation, religion or other belief systems, transgender identity or its expression, sexual orientation, age or functional impairment, or other degrading treatment. All such tendencies should be actively combated. Xenophobia and intolerance must be confronted with knowledge, open discussion, and active measures.

This Fall term we will have theme days that will give the students time to discuss these topics with their peers and teachers. The goals for these theme days are:

To understand your unique identities - Identity

To understand our diversities - Diversity

To understand what discrimination is - Discrimination

To raise awareness about the language we use - Words Matter

This is a school wide initiative and the responsibility of everyone at IES Bromma.

IGCSE Math courses at IES Bromma

IGCSE Math courses at IES Bromma

Here at IESB we offer a two year, extensive IGCSE Math course through 8th and 9th grade. 

IGCSEs, or International General Certificate of Secondary Education, are the most popular international qualifications for students in this age range. They provide an opening to international studies, helping students get placements at universities abroad. It also helps expand students' knowledge well beyond the scope of 9th grade, and far into what they learn in 10th grade.

Any student who takes an IGCSE subject will be gaining a qualification that is recognised globally. They are established qualifications that keep pace with educational developments and trends and so are an ideal foundation for higher level courses such as AS and A Levels and the International Baccalaureate Diploma.

At our school the IGCSE course in Math is run by Mr. Smyth and Ms. Strandberg. If you as a student are looking to extend your knowledge and elevate your profil . Not only is it truly international - it gives students more options than any other international qualification. That means more subjects to choose from, more ways to learn and more ways to succeed.


Please contact Mr Smyth if you would like to attend these classes.

First Teacher Project : IESB Wellness

First Teacher Project : IESB Wellness

The Wellness Project is a school wide initiative created so that the students of IESB can learn how to manage and establish good and healthy habits for their own well being.

The coming week we will focus on Relationships and Respect. We believe that healthy relationships can make us happier and add to our feelings of self-worth.

The aim of this project is to facilitate a school-wide wellness program to target students. Students today are feeling increasingly stressed and unwell. Students need education about healthy habits, such as exercise, sleep, screen time, mindfulness and hydration. Students need tools and strategies to improve their well-being and manage stress.


Our project this year consists of 6 themes: 

1. Exercise

2. Relationships and Respect

3. Sleep

4. Screen Time and Self-Esteem

5. Mindfulness

6. Hydration
