Starting school as a newcomer

On this page, we have gathered some info that might be useful for you if you have a child starting in school in Esbjerg.

When you move to Esbjerg Municipality with one or more children, they have the right to be admitted to the Elementary school (including primary and lower secondary school) in the school district in which you live. However, it is also possible to choose a different school either within the same district or in a different district if that school has vacant spots. If you wish for a different school than the district school, please contact the school directly to ask if they have vacant spots.
