    Camps and Exchange Programs

    Throughout their education at Prins Henrik School, students have the possibility of participating in field trips or longer journeys arranged by the school, for the purpose of showing them other places and cultures, while also enabling them to improve their language skills and make them more independent as individuals. They benefit greatly from the shared experiences in new places and in different contexts. At the same time, they broaden their cultural awareness and move one step closer to becoming “citizens of the world.”

    For Primaire

    Starting in the first grade, students head off to camp or on a trip for a couple of days to learn about different subjects (for example: nature hikes or beach walks), either in Denmark or other places in Scandinavia:

    • Camp Samsø for students in fourth grade, 2024 and Hillerød 2024

    The trips are meant to strengthen camaraderie among the students and the general well-being of the class.

    The 4 graders (A) went on a 5-day field trip to Samsø. The students discovered this Danish island by bike, covering around a hundred kilometers during the days. In addition to learning about Denmark’s geography and history, and its preserved nature, they also discovered a concrete example of the production and use of renewable energies on an island scale.

    Our combined 2nd – 3rd grade class spent four days at camp in Hillerød close to the forest. We explored the local flora and fauna in the surrounding forest.

    For Secondaire

    About a month after school starts, the entire sixth grade takes a four-day trip to a recreation center in Tisvildeleje in the north of Zealand. The trip, which is organized by the sixth-grade class teachers, is meant to ease the transition between fifth and sixth grade, helping the students create new bonds and friends in their collège classes. Alongside team building, with sports and social activities, the students also have assignments that prepare them for the expectations of six grade, and teach them to manage their academic work load.  




    • Every year at the start of January, a group of our 1ère students travel to Geneva to be part of the FerMUN challenge, organized by the international gymnasium in Ferney-Voltaire. Students can also take part in a simulated debate at a mock U.N. conference or visit CERN with their physics and chemistry teacher.

    “Mapping Controversies”

    Europe opens up for debate!

    Mapping controversies – is founded on many years of experimenting with the AEFE project FORCCAST (Formation à la Cartographie des Controverses et à l’Analyse des Sciences et Techniques), which is a joint research initiative started by Sciences Po in Paris.

    The project is a continuation of the work, bringing together three “pilot” schools that tested the method in 2018:


    • Le Lycée Franco Hellénique Eugène Delacroix d’Athènes – Greece
    • Le Lycée Chateaubriand de Rome – Italy
    • Prins Henrik School – Denmark 

    The goal is to find a joint process in which to “map out controversies” of new issues.

    All students in 1ère took part in the “Mapping Controversies – COS 2024” project. For the second year in a row, this project brought together high school students from French schools in Copenhagen, Oslo and Stockholm.


    This year’s controversy concerned the participation of hyperandrogenic athletes in high-level sporting competitions, particularly at the Olympic Games. Issues of fairness in women’s sporting competitions and the consequences of regulations put in place by international federations were at the heart of the debates.

    It was necessary to focus on different aspects of the controversy, such as :

    – Legislative and sports regulation issues
    – Biological issues
    – Political and ideological issues


    The students carried out simulated debates, taking on the role of a major player in the controversy, such as scientists, sports doctors and heads of sports organizations like the IOC (International Olympic Committee).

    The Copenhagen students were able to exchange views with their Scandinavian counterparts on several occasions to prepare for their roles, and they also developed their ability to argue and express themselves in public, while dealing with a subject at the heart of current affairs.


    Comments from social media: 


    “The second day was super exciting and interesting, smiling and happy faces, sharing and exchanging ideas. Top of the line learning and exposure, it was amazing!” 

    “Congratulations and a big thank you to the students in 1ère for their hard work at the ARC controversies project!”

    Students in the MATh.en.JEANS club regularly attend conferences abroad, giving them the chance to meet other math-interested students their age, along with other students from the universities or researchers from mathematics faculties.

    All students of German leave for a school trip to a German speaking country at least once during their time at Prince Henrik School.

    The German students in Seconde went on a trip to Hamburg in May 2024. They followed a rich program on the theme of the city, water, art and adventure. A trip with a great atmosphere and resulting in stronger friendships. Eine sehr gute Reise!

    Prins Henrik School is part of the ADN-AEFE exchange program.


    The program enables individual students from seconde to do a school exchange for a couple of weeks at one of the 165 schools within the AEFE network, which are part of the program.   

    The purpose is for students to host a student from another French school in the world and for our own students to then be hosted by them in their home land. 

    This unique experience is a fantastic opportunity for our students to enrich their education and explore new horizons, while still being guaranteed quality instruction and a familiar curriculum, because the schools are all part of the same network: AEFE – Agence pour l’enseignement français à l’étranger.
