Welcome from the Principal

Jonas Hard

Dear all,

My name is Jonas Hård and as of March 2, I will be the principal of Internationella Engelska Skolan Upplands Väsby, which opens in August 2020. I’m truly proud to become part of the IES-team and look forward to opening a new bilingual quality school in Upplands Väsby.

I started my career as a mathematics and science teacher in Botkyrka and for the past 10 years, I’ve worked as a teacher and a principal in Vallentuna. My most recent assignment was as Head of Education in Vallentuna municipality.

My ambition is to make IES Upplands Väsby into a fantastic school for all students. I truly believe in IES’s ethos and that the start to all learning and reaching high academic achievements is a safe and calm learning environment. 

I’m a principal who is passionate about making a difference in the lives of our students. Another passion of mine is football as I used to play for ÖSK football club. Nowadays, in my spare time, I stick to the sidelines as a football coach.

It is exciting to start building a strong team of passionate teachers and staff to join me in making IES Upplands Väsby fantastic, and I’m really looking forward to welcoming all excited students in August when school starts.

Best regards,
Jonas Hård
