An exceptional place for Swedish education

Welcome to the
Swedish School in London

We are Outstanding again!

The Swedish School in London was awarded Outstanding in its latest Ofsted inspection, which took place on 6-8 June 2023. This is the fourth consecutive Outstanding result achieved by the School and the highest level awarded by Ofsted. The School has, therefore, been recognised as Outstanding for the last 13 years.

After the Ofsted inspection on March 4-6, 2024, we are also, for the first time, rated as ‘Outstanding’ on our host family program. We are incredibly proud of the recognition of everything staff, and host families do to provide our guest students with a safe and rewarding exchange year in London.
