Welcome to Stenhus Gymnasium & HF

Stenhus Gymnasium & HF in Holbæk was established in 1906 and is today one of Denmark’s largest ”gymnasiums” with approximately 1400 students and almost 150 university trained teachers.

The physical conditions of the school are absolutely superb as the school has recently been renovated and extended with new buildings in a modern and bright architecture, which has created open space for all sorts of study activities.

When our students have finished their schooling at Stenhus Gymnasium & HF they are in possession of:

  • A general education, knowledge and study competence within the humanities, natural science and social science with a view to a more advanced educational capacity for reasoning, analysis, generalization and abstraction
  • innovative and creative faculties
  • personal and social competences and the ability to reflect on the surrounding world as well as one’s own development
  • qualifications that enable active participation in a democratic society
  • the ability to be able to navigate in an internationally oriented world

From August 2016 Stenhus Gymnasium & HF becomes even more internationally orientated in that we will be offering the “Pre-IB Programme” for the first time.
Stenhus Gymnasium & HF is a candidate school for the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IB) and pursuing authorization as an IB World School. We hope to offer the IB Diploma Programme from August 2017.

At Stenhus Gymnasium & HF we emphasize tolerance, mutual respect and a proper tone amongst students and staff. Our students participate in the decision making and they are co-responsible for their own teaching. Accordingly, we expect students to take responsibility for their own education, work actively and show respect for each other.


Being a student at Stenhus Gymnasium & HF is more than just attending classes. The two or three years at school also include after school activities in a creative and innovative setting where new initiatives blossom.

As a student you can meet in a community of interests with other students – it is, for example, possible to stage a musical, play in a band, arrange music cafés, spend time in art workshops, participate in theatrical productions, play soccer, badminton, basketball, volleyball, and participate in various tournaments.

To conclude, Stenhus Gymnasium & HF contributes in meeting society’s needs for young people to develop from students into becoming undergraduates and becoming competent, democratic citizens in the Danish society and in a globalized world.
