A warm welcome to Internationella Engelska Gymnasiet (IEGS) for the 2020/2021 school year, to both our new and returning students. I hope that you have found your summer vacation to be both enjoyable and restful.  

Education around the world has changed during these past months. Some of our students have been home from school for a longer period of time, studying from a distance.
