Football club BSK

Football club BSK


IES Upplands Väsby and BSK have started a collaboration to make children in the municipality more active


The pandemic has hit the children's health hard as the association life has had to shut down. The students aged 13 - 19 have also been hit hard by this as their teaching has been digital for a big part of 2020 and the beginning of 2021. For these students, it has become very sedentary also diet and sleep have been a major problem.

To do something together about children's health within Upplands Väsby, Internationella Engelska Skolan Upplands Väsby and BSK will start a collaboration. We will start by having a "Football club" one day a week at school between 3.30 - 4.30 for students aged 10 - 14 years. Mr. Ampofo will hold the Football club in our football cages. Mr Ampofo is a respected figure in BSK and many of our students have either been coached by him or have seen him coaching. He is currently studying towards achieving his UEFA  B coaching licence and he is passionate about giving quality coaching to his players.

We look forward to working with BSK in the future and making the club feel welcome at our school when they start to use our facilities for their own teams in the future.

Mike Westhead

I am Mr Mike Westhead originally from England but resident in Sweden since 2007 and part of the IES team since January 2014. After a short period teaching physical education at IES Bromma I was given the opportunity to be a part of the founding management team at IES Liljeholmen where I have worked as the schools Student Care Manager for the past six years. 

I'm really excited to be starting another brand new school and being a part of the team that will turn IES Upplands Väsby into the best school that it can be. I look forward to working with your children and helping them to become well educated and well mannered young people who always do their best.

In my free time I compete in cycling and Ironman triathlon and you'll see me cycling to and from work all year round, whatever the weather.

Kind regards
