The School

The School usually meets every second Sunday during term time in an easily accessible location in Cambridge.  We are currently using the facilities at St Faiths School, Cambridge.

We welcome all children from the age of two and older where at least one of the child’s parents is a Swedish citizen and the child speaks Swedish at home daily.

Children who speak Swedish but whose parents do not have Swedish citizenship are welcome, subject to there being space available.

The students are put into classes according to their age and ability.

The parents remain with our youngest students as they sing, play and do crafts.

The middle group have their lessons outside exploring the grounds and playing.

The oldest students study in a more formal school environment. Read, write, count, explore Swedish culture and geography and history. The children also receive homework to complete between lessons.
