Important information

We are inviting applications for admission to our new Secondary 1 French Class* opening in August 2023. The application deadline is: 10 February 2023

*The aim is to establish a secondary 1 class in the French language section (fluent French is a requirement). If we don't have enough qualified applicants to establish a French class, we will instead open a Danish/French combination class, where the students have either Danish or French as L1/mother tongue, but all other non-language subjects are taught in Danish (fluent Danish is a requirement).
