Admission Related Information for the English Section

Rödaberg is a municipal school with a special assignment to provide education in English for children living in Sweden for a limited period of time. The education follows the Swedish curriculum and there is no queue or waiting list.

All subjects are taught in English. We have one class for Grades F1 to 9. To be eligible, the students must have mastered English well enough to follow the lessons and assignments.

Swedish is taught from Grade F1. In Grades 7 to 9, it is taught for the same amount of time as in the Swedish section. We integrate the F-class and Grade 1 in the English section.

You can be one year younger than your peers in your class.

We have no preschool at Rödabergsskolan.

School starts in August and ends in June the  following year.
