Number of primary schools in Sweden 2009-2019

Primary school in Sweden is administered by the municipalities and consists of nine years of compulsory education. The nine years are divided into three stages: lower school, intermediate school and junior high school. The number of pupils attending primary school increased annually from schoolyear 2010/11 onwards and amounted to roughly 1.09 million during the schoolyear 2019/20.

Increasing number of pupils per primary school

     During the same period, the number of primary schools peaked in 2012, amounting to 4,909 schools. Since then, the number of schools gradually decreased even though the number of pupils constantly increased, and in 2019 the number of primary schools was 4,829. The increase in the number of pupils in primary school combined with a decreasing number of schools resulted in a constant increase in the number of pupils per primary school since 2012. In 2018, there were on average 221 pupils per primary school in Sweden.  

Expenditure per pupil

   Even though the number of pupils per primary school increased over the period, the primary school expenditure per pupil also increased significantly during the period from 2008 to 2018. In 2018, the spending per primary school pupil reached 112.2 thousand Swedish kronor.
