General Information


Odense International School is a certified Cambridge International Examinations Centre. We currently offer the Cambridge Primary Programme, key stage 1 and key stage 2. Please refer to the CIE web site,, for further information about the curriculum content. The core subjects are English, mathematics, science as well as ICT starters. Students also take physical education and art classes, as well as French from the final year of key stage 2.

Students are then able to take IGSCE exams at Odense International School at age 16, which are globally recognised international qualifications. If students wish to pursue an international highschool education, we can recommend International Baccalaureate at Nyborg Gymnasium (

All classes at Odense International School are linked to a friendship class at Henriette Hørlücks School. In key stage 1 and 2 students take art and physical education with their friendship class. Key stage 1 and 2 students also share the after school care programme with Henriette Hørlücks School students. This is in order to facilitate integration through friendships with the Danish students. All international students are also by law required to study Danish. Through this integration approach we hope to further encourage the development of their Danish language further.

Odense International School opened in August 2011 and is contracted through a partnership with the local council, to develop a full educational offer in English for students aged 5-16. Today 160 pupils are attending OIS and 480 at the Danish department Henriette Hørlücks School.
