Thank you for your interest in BIS-Gävle and we look forward to welcoming you to our school

Welcome to BIS-Gävle

A warm welcome from our Admissions Team. Thank you for considering our British International School for your children. We understand the importance of finding the right school for your child or children. We would like to help you make this decision an easy and positive experience. 

We are an inclusive non-selective school and welcome applications to our school all year round from students of all abilities. We currently have places available at different year groups. 

As a first step please fill out the Online Application and a member of our Admissions Team will contact you as soon as we open the enrolment process.

Our Admissions Process

Complete our Online Application Form. You will be directed to our secure Admissions Portal to register and complete the process.

Ensure you have the following documents ready:

  • Copy of birth certificate or passport
  • Latest school report (or a recent drawing if your child is pre-school age)
  • All Senior School applications must include a reference form completed by current school.  Applications cannot be processed without this form.

With each application made to our School, we charge a fee of SEK 2,500 per child. This Application Fee is non-refundable. In cases where an application is made and the offer is declined, the fee will be retained. However, in unusual circumstances when we are unable to offer your child a place, the fee will be reimbursed. 

  • Important: All applications must be accompanied by the documents listed above, plus the online payment for the admissions process to start. 

After paying the application fee, please submit your application. You will receive an automated response to confirm that it was successfully delivered. 

Once a completed application form and the above documents have been received, it is reviewed by relevant senior teaching staff and specialists.

Once your application has been approved, you will receive our offer letter and school contract. Your contract must be signed and returned to the Admissions Office to complete your application.
