"I like the fact the school has a broad mix of students, everyone has a different background and comes from a different part of Sweden or the rest of the world. " Olivia, ninth grade student
Something for everyone
At Internationella Engelska Skolan we understand the important part a nutritious, healthy lunch plays in the successful school day. The founder of Internationella Engelska Skolan, Ms Barbara Bergström, has emphasised for many years the importance of nutrition in an educational environment.
All of our schools serve excellent food, a vegetarian alternative and have no problem catering to any allergies or special dietary requirements. The school lunch is of course free of charge and teachers and students eat together in the same lunchroom. The school provides a box lunch during school excursions.
BL Catering is contracted through 2017 for the lunches at IES Tyresö.
In addition to lunch, students and staff may purchase a punch card which allows them to receive 10 "mellanmål" or lighter meals after school. BL Catering also runs the student cafe "The London Cafe" which is open during certain hours of the school day and serves only healthy food and drinks.
At IES Tyresö, no nuts of any kind are allowed to be served or eaten by students or staff.
Students and staff are restricted to the lunch room for eating. No sugary snacks, candy, chewing gum or soft drinks are allowed. Sweets and baked goods are allowed for special occasions.
Staff may also purchase punch cards good for purchase of take-home meals from the lunch room.
