Täby Enskilda Gymnasium – the organisation
Täby Enskilda Gymnasium is a charter school without ties to any educational corporate groups, wholly independent since its establishment in 1999. Owned by local entrepreneur Poul Sörensen, our school has, over the past twenty years, grown and developed into one of the best schools in the country.
The school is operated as a privately owned business, and its board of directors consists of Poul Sörensen (chair), Fredrik Sörensen (CEO), Jan Liljegren (principal) as well as teacher union representatives.
Passion for learning
The majority of the students at Täby Enskilda Gymnasium come from municipalities in the northeastern sector of Stockholm County. The socio-economic level of this area is upper middle class and above, and the educational level of the parents is relatively high.
Täby Enskilda is one of the most popular upper secondary schools in the greater Stockholm area and our graduating students achieve among the highest grades in the country.
Täby Enskilda has 890 students.
Curriculum and graduation requirements
Täby Enskilda Gymnasium follows the regulations set by the Swedish National Agency for Education, Skolverket. The school is financed through a national voucher system and we are by law only allowed to accept students based on their grades from year 9.
Due to our popularity, high grades are required to get into all programmes.
The Swedish grading system uses the letters F, E, D, C, B, A. F stands for fail, and passing grades rank from E to A where A is the highest grade.
Täby Enskilda Gymnasium offers five vocational programmes
- The Aesthetic programme, media and communication orientation
- The Economic programme
- The Natural Sciences programme
- The Social Sciences programme
- The Technology programme

Quality in practice
Täby Enskilda excels at providing assistance and a clear sense of direction for students in their school work.
Students are offered a variety of examination types such as group work, individual assignments or seminars.
Täby Enskilda has an active and independent student’s association, dedicated to developing school spirit by arranging fun activities all throughout the year.
Tutorial time is scheduled every week, where students and teachers can provide feedback to each other and students can express their concerns regarding specific assignments.
Täby Enskilda offers students healthy and nutritious food prepared fresh by our own chefs to keep students and staff well-fed, as being hungry or malnutritioned is detrimental to higher level thinking.
During the spring semester, from March 18 to June 3, Täby Enskilda was closed to students, instead offering full time ’remote learning’, meaning that the students were following classes at home and the teachers taught from school. During the autumn semester, from August 24 to December 4, Täby Enskilda employed a rolling schedule of ’partial remote learning’, meaning that each day a third of students were studying from home.
Since all students and staff at Täby Enskilda have a school-provided laptop, and since the IT-infrastructure of the greater Stockholm area is very good, remote education has faced few technical challenges. Pedagogically, too, Tour staff and students have managed very well during these trying times. On graduation day, June 3 2020, Täby Enskilda saw no negative effects on the third year students’ final grades compared to those of previous classes. Sweden has made no significant changes to the grading scales, policies for grading or graduation requirements during the covid-19 pandemic.
