History of SSHL

As early as the 1920s, there were two boarding schools of note in Sigtuna. Sigtunastiftelsens Humanistiska Läroverk, founded by bishop Manfred Björkquist and Sigtunaskolan, founded by theologian Harry Cullberg. They merged in 1980 to form Sigtunaskolan Humanistiska Läroverket, SSHL. Since then, the school has become the leading boarding school in Sweden, combining high academic standards with a wide range of recreational activities.

Managed by Sigtuna Skolstiftelse with Sigtunastiftelsen

SSHL is situated on Sigtuna’s western slope, the same site where SHL once stood. The unique school campus is framed by beautiful natural surroundings with a view over Lake Mälaren.

SSHL is managed by Sigtuna Skolstiftelse with Sigtunastiftelsen and Knut and Alice Wallenbergs stiftelse as trustees. As a foundation, the school is not run for profit.
