Rygaards International School is a private, Christian/Catholic, co-educational establishment. It is recognised by and subject to, Danish law and receives a subsidy from the Danish State.

The school is a member of COBIS (The Council of British International Schools), the European Council of International Schools (ECIS) and the Association of Catholic Schools in Denmark (FAKS)

The School is managed by a Board of Governors consisting of 5 members and is a non-profit making institution. The day to day running of the school is managed by a team of 5 leaders.

The school buildings, which include the eighteenth-century manor house, from which the school derives its name, are sited on the original wooded parkland which is now a protected green-belt area.

The school is in Hellerup, an attractive suburb, 15 minutes north of the centre of Copenhagen, and is easily accessible by bus and train.

The Sisters of the Assumption started the school in 1909 and the connection with this Order is still strong. The present school continues to follow the goals of those early beginnings, namely to offer an excellent quality of education in a Christian spirit.

The school is actualy two schools under one roof, a Danish School and an International School.

The Danish School has approx. 450 students from 6-16 years of age and serves a community that is permanently resident in Denmark. It prepares the students, in Danish, for further education in Danish institutions.

The International School has approx. 450 students from 4-16 years of age and caters - irrespective of creed and nationality - for those who are only in Denmark on a temporary basis.


The aim of the International School is to provide a sound education, in English, in order to enable students to return to their own national system, or continue at another international school.

For both schools particular emphasis is placed upon mutual understanding and respect among the many nationalities in the two school. The education given is, above all, in the Christian spirit; great importance is placed upon the religious and moral development of the individual student. Religious Awareness programmes are offered to all students. Roman Catholics are given separate instruction.
