Sigtunaskolan Humanistiska Läroverket SSHL
Friends and knowledge for life
SSHL is a Swedish boarding school with an international outlook. We offer our students a unique blend of Swedish and international culture, high academic standard and high-class student support.
We welcome both boarding and day students. Our belief is that committed teachers, a focus on the individual and a wholesome learning environment all contribute significantly to academic achievement.
The school’s location along Lake Mälaren gives the students a serene environment, close to nature. Here you will have access to an active and inspiring recreational time with the school’s sports and creative activities, as well as close access to the historical town of Sigtuna and Arlanda Airport.
SSHL is run by Sigtuna School Foundation and, as a foundation it is not run for profit.
Graduation at SSHL
Graduation is a memory for life for our students and a day of festivities for family and friends. This video shows the students of 2023 run out at Midgårdstrappan and march through the town of Sigtuna. See also 2023 photo album
