The Swedish School in London admits students with a basic knowledge of the Swedish language, as the majority of our teaching is in Swedish. At our Primary and Secondary school we admit students throughout the year from both international and Swedish schools.
Admission is on an individual basis and subject to available places. The Head Teacher reviews all applications to evaluate whether the school can provide the appropriate education and support for each individual student.
See below for more information on the application process, fees, other financial information.
The Swedish School in London is a private, not-for-profit school, registered as a charity in England and Wales, providing first-rate Swedish education from Pre-school straight through to Sixth Form. Our costs for staff, facilities and the daily operation are mainly covered by school fees.
Each year, the Board of Governors will decide on the school fees. However, this can be subject to change depending on whether our costs have been altered. Information about this is continuously updated on the website, although we recommend that you contact us to be sure.
