Spring is on the way, we are planning for Autumn!

Although we are  looking forward to Spring we are setting our sights on the Autumn Term. During the coming weeks we will be meeting all of the students who will be joining us in August 2015.

These Introduction Days give us an opportunity to meet our new students and, importantly, they spend time with each other.

There will be further opportunities for them to get together when we have our Spring Fair on 23 May.

If you are interested in applying to our school please apply on this web-page and come along and visit us on 23 May.

A great start to the school year.

Dear Students and Parents,

After months of waiting we are finally there, the new restaurant has opened!

We would like to thank our landlords, Botrygg, and our new food provider for their marvellous efforts in making sure we could eat in the new restaurant from the first day of term.

The restaurant staff are now learning that our students have very healthy appetites and eat lots of food. This helps the students to concentrate on the task in hand during their lessons.

We are also pleased that the new gym is in operation and the final touches are under way.

A warm welcome to all new students and staff, we are sure that this school year will provide you with new and stimulating challenges.

There are a few vacancies for students so please get in touch if you would like to join us.

Yours sincerely,

Mary Dahlin, Principal

During the Summer Break

While our students and staff are enjoying a well-earned break there is still plenty of activity going on in and around the school.

The buildings which have served us well as Junior School classrooms and then school restaurant are being torn down to make way for a play area, meanwhile, the new Sports Hall and Restaurant are being fitted out so that they are ready for the start of school.

Also of interest are the advertisments we have posted on the careers section of this web-site and, in addition, we have some places available for students in a few classes.

Please contact us if you have any questions or are interested in vacancies for staff and students:

The end of the school year.

Suddenly we are there, the end of the school year.

While we reflect on the year which has gone our focus is firmly fixed on the coming school year.

In August the waiting is over and we can provide a selection of dishes for lunch, prepared on the premises in our own kitchen.

In addition our new sports hall will open offering healthy excercise, which combined with good food is a recipe for success when studying.


Warm summer wishes to students and parents alike.

We look forward to seeing you in August!



Mary Dahlin, Principal.

Hopes of Spring

Dear Parents and Students,

At this time of year we are lulled into thinking Spring is round the corner only to be met by yet another spell of chilly weather.

Inside the school building, however, we know exactly what time of year it is. Notices are going up asking for silence in the corridors while students take tests. Young children can be seen visiting us at weekends for an introduction to our school before they start in August.  There are even indications that the Great Spring Run may soon see students and teachers sprinting around the building.

There is lots going on as you can see and this is what makes our school such an interesting place to be, you never know what to expect.

Be on the look-out for information about one of the highlights of our year The  Annual Spring Fair to be held in May.

Amazing results!

Congratulations to our students who took part in Högstadiets Matematiktävling on Saturday 18 January 2014 at Dandyrds Gymnasium.

We are proud to be able to say that one of our Year 9 students, Maria Kulesh, won first prize.

It is fantastic that four of our students reached this final and were well placed in the top 30. 

Those who achieved this result are: Erik Lidman, Ludvig Eriksson-Knasst and Emilia Reischel.

Well done all of you and thanks to Mr. Buzzelli who arranged your entry.

The New Term

Welcome back to a new term!

At last winter is making an appearance and those snowy, crisp days we long for have arrived. In spite of rather dull weather in recent weeks it seems that staff and students alike have enjoyed the Christmas break and have returned to school with renewed energy.

We are looking even further ahead to August 2014 and see the building taking shape behind our school. The facilties we will use and the proportions of the Sports Hall and Dining Room are becoming clear, we hope to be able to have a look inside in the near future.

Please keep an eye out for more information on this page!

The last days of term.

Our school is fortunate to be part of Linköping Kommun's "Vinterljus" and we thought it would be a good idea if we opened up the building to the public during this period. In recent weeks we have had an open evening and an open -air Carol Concert. Our building allows us to create a very cosy, charming atmosphere with a hint of grandeur.

We are soon approaching the last days of the Autumn Term but we are not slowing down. While assessments for this term are being gathered and recorded we are also making plans for the coming term. This week ends with our annual Lucia celebration and next week we have The End-of-Term Celebration where we will also look back at the achievements of our students in a number of fields. In between we are going to spend time reflecting upon and discussing how we can maintain the high standards we expect both academically and in creating a safe and secure school.

Next year 2014 is a year of promise. Our longed for restaurant and sports hall are now clearly taking shape and we are really looking forward to having a look at the inside. 

In the meantime, it is heads down for the remaining days of term with a short pause now and again to look forward to 2014.

Our best kept secret.

For months now some of us have had to work hard not to tell.

In Spring we were told that we would be part of "Vinterljus", the annual illumination of an area in Linköping. Each year different parts of the town are lit up and different themes presented.

Our building is beautiful and now from 16 November and during the coming weeks it is magnificent, a joy to behold.

Equally joyous are the faces of our students as they look in wonder at the magical transformation of their school and if they walk to the next stop on the route then, lo and behold, there is another surprise.

I am not going to say what it is quite yet.

Our wonderful parents!

On Friday evening we had the second of our annual Halloween parties. This time it was for Years 6-9.

Yet again our fantastic parents planned and prepared this party with great attention to detail. This involved many hours of both meetings and e-mails and culminated in a truly spooky, Spooky Corridor plus lots of other activities and imaginative decorations, cake and snacks.

To end it all everything was cleaned, cleared and put back in place by the Cleaning Crew.

We are grateful to all the parents, students and staff involved for making this event such a success.

We really appreciate the amount of time, energy and enthusiasm involved.
