About British International School of Stockholm
British International School of Stockholm is a co-educational all-through independent school based in Danderyd in Sweden.
The school was founded in 1980 and was initially run from a historic house in Danderyd called Borgen. It moved to its present location in Östra Valhallavägen in 1985. Originally called the British Primary School, the school chose to update its name to British International Primary School of Stockholm in 2000 before removing the word “primary” when the school expanded to include secondary children in 2014. The name is intended to reflect the fact that it is a truly international school with over 45 nationalities represented among pupils.
