Welcome to Roskilde Katedralskole

About 35 kilometres west of the city centre of Copenhagen, 1450 students gather every day to take their upper secondary education at Roskilde Katedralskole.

Tradition in a modern environment

Dating back to the 10th century, Roskilde Katedralskole has a long tradition of educating the youth of the surrounding area.

Today, the school is a modern school which provides upper secondary education to about 1450 students. The school has grown and changed significantly since its foundation as a school educating priests at Roskilde Cathedral. But traditions are kept alive and celebrated, and learning and as well as personal development are still our main focus. 

High professionalism

As a school we constantly upgrade and develop our opportunities for innovative teaching and development for students, and we keep a modern study environment which both our students and staff benefit from.

We are continuously updating our facilities and buildings to accommodate to the current number of students.

Room for everyone

At Roskilde Katedralskole you can take your general upper secondary education (stx) if you are between 15-20 years old. We accommodate for a number of exchange students every year, and they fit in well with the school's broad diversity of Danish students. It is important for us to support a learning environment which gives room for everyone who is interested in learning. And we offer you good opportunities for learning as we provide a range of subject combinations to choose from. The school also offers opportunity for international cooperation and inspiration through participation in various international projects and partnerships.

Warm and open atmosphere

Even though Roskilde Katedralskole is a large school for Danish standards, the atmosphere here is always welcoming and warm. We appreciate an open and warm tone amongst students and teachers alike, as we believe this will establish the best learning and working environment. Students at Roskilde Katedralskole come from the city of Roskilde as well as from the many towns and villages surrounding Roskilde; this calls for what we believe to be of utmost importance: acceptance of differences. Luckily we are all different, and differences need dialogue, which is the foundation for learning.

We hope to hear from you or meet with you here at Roskilde Katedralskole.
