The day-to-day running of the school is managed by a team of 2 managers. For our school, special emphasis is placed on mutual understanding and respect between the many nationalities.

The education given is above all in the Christian spirit; Great emphasis is placed on the religious and moral development of each student. Religious awareness programs are offered to all students. Roman Catholic students receive separate tuition.

The local parish church of Saint Knud Lavard is an integral part of the school buildings and is used by the school for both Catholic and ecumenical services. In addition, the Protestant students attend services in Lyngby Church close to our school.

It is not always possible to find places at the school for everyone seeking admission. It is therefore recommended to apply early. Children must be 5 years old before The first of October before they can be admitted. Before admission, all parents are invited to an interview with the principal.

We value community life and see each individual as a unique human being and ensure that every child is seen and heard. Every day, we encourage our students to develop academically while gaining important life skills. We believe that curiosity and creativity are an essential part of an individual’s self-development, and we ensure that all our students receive a good schooling by creating a healthy learning environment.
