Teaching is of the highest quality, both academically and pedagogically, and the school has an inspiring and demanding study environment with support and challenges for everyone.

    At Katedralskole there is always something happening outside school hours: musical events, sports, lectures, study circles, voluntary work etc. The school culture is inclusive and diverse. Commitment is highly appreciated, and the students have representatives in all decision-making committees and the chance to initiate new activities.
