About Us



Welcome to Bladins International School of Malmö (BISM); an IB World School which provides our students with an exceptional international education.

Our school has a perfect location with easy access to green parks and the city center. Bladins International School of Malmö is one of very few IB accredited World schools in Sweden offering education to students from the age of 1 - 19 years with Pre-school, Primary Years Programme, Middle Years Programme and Diploma Programme.

Bladins was founded 1868 as a Swedish elementary school and 1987 it opened an international section to provide education for many students with international backgrounds. Now we have approximately 700 students from 47 different countries and their very diverse backgrounds contribute to our open-minded, multicultural and caring atmosphere. Students find it easy to settle in and very quickly become part of our school community.

We accompany our students through their learning and equip them with the necessary skills that our fast changing world expects from us. We foster their independence, their curiosity and their talents, helping them to strive for their passions and achieve their full potential in all aspects of the learning process. As part of our holistic education, we offer a wide variety of subjects including the Arts, Design, a broad choice of Languages and Drama. This allows us not only to encourage our students to choose subjects following their interests but also to develop and flourish in many diverse ways.

“I feel very honoured to be part of Bladins and lead the school, supported by all members of staff, in helping our students to be reflective, independent, risk taking, inquisitive and compassionate. It is our obligation to help them become responsible and principled citizens of the world.”
