The Tanto International School has a long tradition of making the most of enriching educational activities for our students. Located in a beautiful part of central Stockholm, the students have regular opportunities to develop interests and be inspired outside of the traditional classroom setting. The school believes that these opportunities form an essential part of a whole child's learning and can provide stimuli for other great teaching and learning activities. With more museums, galleries and exhibitions than most cities, Stockholm holds many educational treasures that are a must for our international students. The Tanto International School links many of these into its broad and varied curriculum as often as possible.
Downhill Ski Trip
This is a very popular school trip where the children of Year 5 spend up to 5 days downhill skiing in Sweden with their teacher, other experienced staff from the school or a qualified ski instructor for the beginners. This trip is optional and costs extra. However, the cost for the trip is set at a self-cost price. The group stays in self contained apartments in a hostel and have a wonderful time together. It’s a week full of adventures, outdoor experiences and socialising.
In order to maximise the experience of Sweden for our international community, the school take the Yr 5 children to Romme.
Romme Alpin is the 5th most visited ski area in Sweden. With ultra-modern lift system Romme Alpin have developed into a great destination not only for day trips but also for weekends and short weeks. The resort consists of 30 slopes and 12 lifts including four 6-seat Express lifts. One unique feature about Romme Alpin is that it offers skiing on the mountains at a close distance to many large cities. Guests can leave home in the morning, ski all day and then travel back and be home for the evening. Romme Alpin is located 13 kilometers outside Borlänge in southern Dalarna. The distance to the major cities in central Sweden is Stockholm 220 km, Uppsala 160 km, Västerås 130km, Enkoping 150km, Orebro 160km and 26okm to Norrköping. Romme Alpin is a privately owned ski resort, thus there are consistent level of standards throughout the entire resort.
Another highlight for our Year 6/7 class is the annual trip to England. This is an optional trip which costs extra (again at self-cost price). This trip takes place towards the end of the Spring Term. Members of staff go along with any students interested in the trip. We stay in a modern hotel in an area south of London. Daily trips are organised to varying locations to offer a broad experience of activities.
