In order for you to succeed in your studies and get the best results / grades, we offer support and assistance to you.

We have a dedicated student health team with school welfare officer, school nurse, student counsellors, special educators and special teacher s who are prepared to support and guide you in your studies. However, the responsability lies with you toget in touch, listen to the teacher, show consideration for your classmates, bring the right material and keep track of what is going to be done in the different courses. If, for some reason, you do not pass (E) for several courses, you might be held back a year.
Absence / Leave
At upper secondary school, compulsory attendance is required and in order to succeed in your studies, attendance at school is necessary. Students may not be absent from classes without registration or leave.
Leave is given for a maximum of 3 days per academic year and should always be granted by the school.
CSN, The Student National Board of Student Aid, determines if a student is entitled to a student grant or not. If a student has invalid absence for four (4) hours over a 30-day period and the absence has occurred repeatedly, the student grant will be questioned. CSN handles and passes judgement on cases where students grant are being questioned.
Notification of illness
In case of illness the student or his/her legal guardian should call 0515-777026 using a voice dialer.
Automatic absence notification over the phone registers absence for a whole day at a time. If you call after 12.00 o’clock, absence will be registered for the following day. If you will be absent after 12 o’clock, you must notify the office or directly to the mentor. If, for some reason, you are unable to register absence via a voice call telephone, the student contacts his mentor.
Student Programme Meetings (EPT)
The headmasters hold student programme meetings with 1-2 representatives from each class to discuss programspecific issues. The students who attend are responsible for discussing the questions on the meeting agenda with his/her classmates beforehand in order to prepare for the meeting.
For each class there is a scheduled class council. The Class Council consists of all students in the class and class mentors. The main task of the class council is to be a forum for student democracy.
