As of the same date, Mr West will join IES Södertälje as Principal.
Dr Benedikz is no stranger to IES, as she was the Principal of the Internationella Engelska Gymnasiet (IEGS) in Södermalm between 2005 - 2013. Most recently she held the position of Director of Sigtunaskolan Humanistiska Laroverket (SSHL) since April 2013.
