The Secondary education cycle consists of grades S1-S7 and the pupils are between 11-19 years old. The European School Copenhagen follows the curriculum set by the European Schools and the secondary cycle is completed with the European Baccalaureate certificate.

The school will be opening its Secondary department in August 2018 with three new classes – one S1 and one S2 class in the Danish language section and one S1 class in the English language section. These classes correspond to the Danish 6th and 7th grade. Admission has now closed for these classes. From 9th August, it will be possible to apply for ‘rolling’ admission in case spaces become available during the school year 2018/19. Please ensure you apply using the link provided and submit the required documentation. The admission criteria are available under the link criteria and process.
