Reception classes

If your children is between age 6 and 16 years when you move to Esbjerg Municipality from abroad they can decide if they want to attend the Danish Elementary School. 

Please note that you must contact the consultant for bilingual pupils in Esbjerg Municipality to enter the Danish school system. 

If your child does not speak Danish, he/she will begin in a reception class, where they can attend intensive Danish courses.

As soon as your child understand Danish and can follow a normal Danish class, he/she will be moved to the school and class near your home address. The consultant has to approve the test before the child moves to the Danish class.
