Learning Support Programme
The International School of Helsingborg was founded in 1995 to answer the growing demand for a truly international education at the primary and secondary levels. The school's curriculum, which follows the International Baccalaureate guidelines, is taught in English at all levels.

The student body at ISH includes children from many European countries, north and south America, Asia and the Middle East.

In August 2001 ISH moved to new facilities in an area a few kilometres from the city centre, a location served by both a daily school bus from and to the city centre and a regular local bus route connecting to the city. Helsingborg is situated in south west Sweden, next to the Íresund Sound, which separates Sweden from Denmark. The two countries are four kilometres apart at this point and the narrowest part of the Sound, and the frequent ferries take twenty minutes to make the crossing. There are frequent trains from Helsingborg directly to Kastrup, the airport of Copenhagen, and it takes around 45 minutes.

Prospective parents are invited to download, complete and mail the application form (in acrobat.pdf format). Applciation decisons are taken by the school principal and are based on previous school records, an interview with both parents and students, and any special circumstances. Priority is given to children of families moving to Helsingborg from other countries and to families from the northwest region of Scania. The groups also inlcude Swedish families returning from abroad where the children have attended international schools in which the language of instruction was English.
