We got to see around Stocksundskolan last week and were happily impressed. It is a big school - 750 children split between it and Långängsskolan but class sizes are relatively small and the facilities (staff and location) are really very good. All the schools in Danderyd report good results.
It was absolutely worth going to the open evening though as it gave us a really good insight into both the schools and a much better understanding of the Swedish system, which is so very different from the British system! It is almost impossible to compare them as they focus on such different things and by meeting the teaching staff, it became much clearer how the balance between school teaching and 'fritids' teaching works.
British International School of Stockholm - Monday 1st Feb 9am-4pm (ages 3-14, both sites are open)
