British Education

We follow the broad, balanced British curriculum, delivering an “Internationally British” education in English to children aged 3 to 18.

International Accreditation

We may be passionate about our vision, mission and core values, but we’re also serious about maintaining our high standards in every single STEAM school. The standard of our teaching will be regularly assessed by a professional team senior academics who have been trained in important areas of school inspection including:

  • International accreditation
  • School inspection methodologies
  • School self-evaluations

All schools offering Cambridge qualifications must demonstrate their eligibility to do so by successfully registering with Cambridge Assessment International Education. Cambridge programmes and qualifications set the global standard for international education. They are created by subject experts, rooted in academic rigour and reflect the latest educational research.

British International School of Uppsala is approved as a Cambridge International School.
