Head Teacher Statement.
Our school proves that you can be successful educationally with a diet of wonderful teaching and happiness rather than just a life of testing and past papers.
Our children are encouraged to develop life long learning skills in small groups. We aim to release the potenteal in our children to enable them to play a positive role in their next schools and the wider world.
Visit us to enjoy a great education with plenty og hygge.
Dania School is a non-selective, co-educational independent day school. It is registered for pupils aged from three to eleven. It currently accepts pupils aged from three to eleven years of age from mainly Scandinavian or English backgrounds. It was registered in July 2013 and opened in September 2013.
Dania School is for families who want a bilingual, multicultural education for their children, and for families from other backgrounds who want their children to experience an active, creative and individualised learning experience, that is so popular in Scandinavia.
We utilise the best practice from Scandinavian teaching to ensure our pupils achieve learning goals, ensuring that they go into their next school fully prepared for the challenges that lie ahead.
All of our pupils receive daily English and Danish lessons; English is used in most of our teaching, however, Danish is spoken during Danish and Music lessons.
Play times are when our pupils play in our amazing adventure playground; resilience, team work and active learning flourish in this unique environment. When in the playground our pupils are encouraged to converse in both languages and this is when the benefits of a bilingual education are most apparent.
Our playground also plays an important role in our pupils’ education and outdoor learning is encouraged.
Our goal is to inspire our children to be active, confident, responsible and successful individuals. By having some mixed age groups, our older pupils are role models for our younger pupils – this encourages responsibility, collaboration and ownership, as well as contributing towards social and emotional development.
Dania is a warm, welcoming, inclusive and supportive community and we hope to welcome you to our school.
