Roskilde Cathedral School

Denmark

Roskilde Cathedral School was founded almost 1000 years ago.

Roskilde Cathedral School was in all probability established just around the year 1020 at the same time as Roskilde Cathedral. The students at that time were exclusively boys, and they were trained as priests with Latin, song and theology as subjects. The church was rich, and there were two scholarships so that able scholars could study at the best university of the time in Paris.

At Roskilde Cathedral School, you become part of a strong learning environment, where we make high demands on each other, and where we make every effort every day. The goal is for you to move as much as possible in both your professional and personal development.

More than 1500 students and staff provide a fantastic dynamic. There is room for everyone here, and it is nice to be here, because we treat each other properly and go to great lengths for the individual. Time and time again we hear students say that it is great to be a part of the good social life.

Roskilde Cathedral School is based on:

  • Opportunities – in the form of a very high number of professional and social offers and activities
  • Co-responsibility – to create the best possible learning and study environment
  • Meaning – because all activity is based on contributing to students’ development and general education.
  • At Roskilde Cathedral School, all teachers are organized in subject groups and in 12 interdisciplinary fields of study teams, so-called v-teams. 
  • The members of each v-team have the same immediate leader.
  • The school’s six closest leaders are all members of the school’s management team.
  • A management person is typically the closest leader for two v-teams corresponding to approx. 20 teachers.

This is how we have organized ourselves
