I have my two children in the British International School of Uppsala and we are very satisfied by the teaching quality this school provides. Good taking care of children, professional teachers with long experience, motivated staff at their job who are burning to do their job in the highest possible way. This school is new in Uppsala but they are progressing forward every single day. I highly recommend this school to those parents who care about their children's quality of educational level for their coming Academic years...

Both of our children are students from day 1 since BISU opened in Uppsala. For sure, in the beginning – like everywhere when you get started – there were some challenges but they have been overcome by the great teachers and management in a professional way. Our children feel very comfortable at BISU and enjoy the lessons and side activities. They learn to put theory into practice. The teachers and also the management are acting in the best interest for the children and try their best to involve the parents. We recommend the school.

Our Daughter loves the school! The school has had a significant impact on our daughter’s progress, educational interests, and global mental development orientation. Based on the improvement we have seen in her academic work, we think the school has made a substantial difference in her passion for science, technology, English, mathematics, environmentalism, and improved her understanding of global dynamics. The idea was for her to not miss any great academic opportunities available in Sweden based on the merits of quality education, and BISU offers her that. As her parents, the school has offered us the opportunity to make constructive decisions about her based on the least potential for educational mediocrity to cover her aspirations and future engagements in life. Based on the history of her performances and our perspective of her potential to improve based on her interests, we believe BISU is preparing her for times ahead in a world of uncertainty.

My children go to this school and it feels very safe for me and my children. Skilled and experienced teachers in this school encourage children in a professional way to express themselves in speech and writing. I highly recommend this school if you want to lift up the hidden and hidden talents of children... .... Mina barn går i den här skola och det känns väldig trygg för mig och mina barn. Duktiga och erfarna lärare i den här skolan uppmuntrar barnen på ett professionellt sätt att uttrycka sig i tal och skrift. Jag rekommenderar stark den här skolan om man vill lyfta upp barnens dolda och gömda talanger...

I joined BISU in August 2021 and was excited about being a part of building this brand new school. I have been responsible for the Key Stage 1 class and having a small class has afforded me the opportunity to be in a position to spend individual time with each of my pupils. I have had extremely understanding and supportive parents throughout this year. I have been given the freedom from management to work according to the needs of the children in my care. I look forward to seeing the school go from strength to strength in the future.

It has been a privilege to be part of this fledgeling school and to experience the phenomenal growth and development that has occurred in a very short time. I am currently responsible for the Key Stage 2 learners and with the support and guidance of the capable management team we had a very fruitful year of learning and discovery. It has been a joy to be part of a school where everyone is happy and eager to help and welcome new staff and students. I am sure that the school will keep growing and will be a beacon of success and excellence in the years to come.

BISU constantly ensures that my personal needs are catered for and that I feel prepared for my future education. I have been offered new opportunities and experiences here that I wouldn't have been able to experience at any other school. Great overall learning environment.
