The Curriculum



IBO & Programmes

Primary Years Programme
The PYP Programme caters for pupils aged between 5 and 11. Our Bilingual PYP Programme is based on the IB Primary Years programme(PYP), while also following the Swedish National Curriculum (Lgr11). These classes are taught both in English and Swedish, providing an invaluable opportunity for pupils to learn in a bilingual context. Vasa International School of Stockholm in Vasastan has been IB-certified for PYP since 2009.

In addition to the Bilingual PYP programme, we offer an English PYP programme within the framework of the IB Primary Years programme (PYP). These classes are taught in English by international teachers and follow the IB curriculum only. Swedish is taught in the English PYP programme only as Language B.

Our PreIB class for students aged 5-6 is a mixed class, with about 18 students and two teachers. One of the teachers uses English with the pupils and the other uses Swedish. That way our preIB students get a good basis for both languages and can later choose between our Bilingual PYP programme or our English PYP programme based on the number of years they will be staying in Sweden and the language preference of their child.

Middle Years Programme
The MYP Programme caters for pupils ages 11-15. Our Bilingual MYP Programme is based on the IB Middle Years programme (MYP), while also following the Swedish National Curriculum (Lgr11). These classes are taught both in English and Swedish, providing an invaluable opportunity for pupils to learn in a bilingual context. Vasa International School of Stockholm in Vasastan has already has an authorisation visit in October 2017 and is awaiting accreditation.

In addition to the Bilingual MYP programme, we offer an English MYP programme within the framework of the IB Middle Years programme (MYP). These classes are taught in English by international teachers and follow the IB curriculum only. Swedish is taught in the English PYP programme only as Language B.
