The Swedish School in London (Swed.: Svenska Skolan i London) is an independent school and boarding school in England.

It consists of a nursery and primary school, (Swedish: förskolan och grundskolan), for pupils aged up to 16 years, located near St Paul's School in Barnes, London, and a gymnasium (gymnasiet), for 16-18 year olds, in Richmond, London, co-located with Richmond, The American International University in London. The sixth form of the school has two programmes: a science programme, and a social science programme focusing on civics or economics.

History[edit]

The school was founded in 1907 in Harcourt Street, central London. The lower school moved to Barnes in 1976 and the gymnasium was previously within accommodation rented from a sixth form college in Twickenham.
