About Viborg International School
Active learning in a caring and positive environment
Viborg International School is an international school located in the heart of Jutland. We run as a department of a Danish private school and are a certified Cambridge International Examinations Centre of which there are 10.000 worldwide.
Our school caters mainly for international families living and working in the area and our intakes start at 5 years old and continues through to IGCSE (age 5 – 16). The International General Certificate of Secondary Education is an internationally acclaimed and recognised qualification allowing students to continue to IB studies.
Our students are encouraged to be active learners with a view to becoming global citizens whilst still connecting to the local and the national. Enquiry based learning features highly in our school as does the personal and academic development of our students. Most of all we want our students to enjoy learning. We are a small community where everyone knows everyone and there is always a welcoming atmosphere.
Viborg International School Admissions Policy & Process
Viborg International School operates with rolling admissions and therefore we do not have an application deadline. We do however, become quite full in the course of the year, so the earlier we hear from you, the better.
Applications may be submitted at any time during the year and new students may join the school during the school year if a place is available in the appropriate grade level. The grade placement is made by the school management based on the child’s previous academic placement and report cards and if appropriate any admissions assessments.
As we are an international school, we cater first and foremost to international families. This means that international families will have priority ahead of any other families, as will siblings to our current students.
Language of communication and instruction at Viborg International School is English. If you are an international family with children who do not speak any English, we ask that you contact us to discuss further.
We like to meet or speak with you before the admissions process begins so we ask you to contact us to arrange this. We understand that most are unable to come to an interview in person, so we try to arrange Skype or telephone meetings.
After this, these are the steps ahead:
- Application & supporting documentation to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Grade placement by school management team
- Confirmation of enrolment sent or notification that your child is on our waiting list
Your child is only formally enrolled once you have received the Confirmation of Enrolment document.
Likewise, your child is only formally on our waiting list when you have received an email to this effect and only following the steps above.
As we are an international school we cater first and foremost to international families. This means that international families will be placed on the waiting list ahead of any other families, as will siblings to our current students.
International families take many forms, so in the spirit of fairness we always make any decision on admissions based on whether the child has other alternatives to schooling available locally.
To be placed on the waiting list, you must first fill out in full and return an application form for each child that you wish to enroll at the school. Each family will be listed according to the date on which we receive the application form.
We always welcome phone calls and email enquiries, should you have need for further clarification.

Cambridge IGCSE is the world’s most popular international qualification for 14 to 16 year olds.
It is recognised by leading universities and employers worldwide, and is an international passport to progression and success. Developed over 25 years ago, it is tried, tested and trusted by schools worldwide.
Cambridge IGCSE assessment takes place at the end of the course and can include written, oral, coursework and practical assessment. This broadens opportunities for students to demonstrate their learning, particularly when their first language is not English.
In many subjects, there is a choice between core and extended curricula, making Cambridge IGCSE suitable for a wide range of abilities.
Grades are benchmarked using eight internationally recognised grades, A* to G, which have clear guidelines to explain the standard of achievement for each grade.
Cambridge IGCSE examination sessions take place in June and results are issued in August. Certificates will arrive in late autumn and we have a graduation ceremony to mark the occasion
Cambridge ICE is a group award for Cambridge IGCSE.
It allows schools to offer a broad and balanced curriculum by recognising the achievements of learners who pass examinations in at least seven Cambridge IGCSE subjects from five different subject groups, including two different languages. Co-ordinated Sciences (Double Award) counts as two subjects.

It is also possible to drop off in Sparregade behind the school. You can then enter the school via the stairs leading to the Børnevilla.
Behind Nykredit there is a parking area which you can enter via Fynsgade.

In case of illness, please contact your class teacher.

If the duration exceeds more than one day, please contact school management.
What is authorized absence?
Authorised absence indicates that parents have notified the school
What is unauthorized absence?
Unauthorised absence indicates that no permission has been sought or given.
The school has a ‘zero tolerence’ policy with regards to unauthorized absence and parents will be contacted. Repeated unauthorized absences may jeopardise your child’s future at Viborg International School.
Are there rules for the use of IT and mobile phones?
Mobile phones and IT equipment are permitted at school albeit at your own risk.
From Year 5 we expect students to possess appropriate equipment needed for lessons.
We regard IT equipment as a useful tool to aid learning, never a distraction.

Snacks can be bought in the school snack bar ‘Futten’ at break and at lunch.
Learning and well-being
The foundation for good schooling is learning and wellbeing in equal measures.
We find that paramount to wellbeing is good and decent behavior for all in the school community. Good communication, respect and decent manners are expected of everyone – adults and children – in our school community, whether it is in school, on school trips on social media or email.
We all have a duty of care to make sure everyone is ok. It is the responsibility of parents to make sure the children turn up at school well rested, well prepared and on time.
All schoolchildren are offered surveys and conversations with the school’s health nurse several times during school hours.
As parents, you must give your consent for your child to participate in surveys and conversations.
You are welcome to contact the school’s healthcare nurse if you have any questions or concerns you wish to discuss regarding your child’s health.
The healthcare nurse at your school: Susanne Marcher, Tel no. 87877744
Stage 9 students are seen by: Christine M. Christiansen, Tel no. 87877736
