About the school

Jyderup Folk High School is situated in a castle in a forest in the beautiful nature of north-west Zealand, only one hour  from the capital Copenhagen. 

Focus, relations and surroundings

Jyderup Folk High School is a small cultural school that works with art, culture and society. We wish students to immerse themselves in their main subjects, to meet each other in social gathering and to lift their eyes on the outside world.

Professional and practical teaching

We have a high level of professionalism and strong competencies within the subjects we offer. All our teachers in the artistic subjects are self-performing artists next to their work at school. In addition, the school regularly invites Danish and international artists and guest teachers to workshops or lectures.

We want to give our students the opportunity to be a part of the surrounding community with their art or other projects. Therefore, we collaborate with artists, galleries, organizations and local businesses. For example, we regularly have open stage arrangements in the village, exhibitions at the local gallery, concerts or visits to sustainable first movers in agriculture and ecology.

At a high school you are part of a community. Every morning we start with a morning gathering. We sing a few songs and hear a presentation from a teacher or student. Every Wednesday there is a student meeting where you discuss everything from students’ bar, party committee or each other. We have joint courses, joint excursions and events such as concerts, lectures and other happenings in the evenings or in the weekend.

Food

At Jyderup Højskole food is important and we have a skilled chef who, together with his helpers, cooks and bakes for us every day. It's important for us to cook after the season's green, use the leftovers instead of throwing them away and eat less meat. See the kitchens Instagram @kokkenjyderuphojskole.
