Kassebølle Friskole is a 140-year-old “free school” with lots of traditions, which is located in the middle part of Langeland, fantastically placed in rural surroundings close to forest, beach, and the sea, and still only a few minutes’ drive from Rudkøbing on Langeland. Langeland is an island in the southern Funen archipelago of Denmark. It’s about 45 km long and has approximately 12,600 inhabitants.

Kassebølle Friskole has approximately 100 pupils from kindergarten class to 9th grade in the current school year and has its own afterschool program with approximately 1/3 of the schools’ primary level pupils attending (grades 0th – 5th). There are 8 teachers in the school and 2 adults in the afterschool program. The school has since 2003 had the lower secondary school (grades 7th – 9th) and through this the school is offering the “Primary and Lower-secondary School Leaving Certificate” (folkeskolens afgangsprøve), and furthermore electives are offered in the lower secondary school which has a more creative character and a good number of hours per week.

At the school there is ample opportunity for physical activities as it is situated on a large plot with soccer field, campfire site, nature playground, sandboxes, swings, climbing tower, shelter and much more. There is also plenty of forest, thicket and lovely old crooked trees, where the children climb and make hide-outs.

Kassebølle Friskole is a creative, academically well-founded and project-oriented “free school” based on the Grundtvig-Koldian perspective on school and life, and this means that the school does not profess to a certain ideology or a certain pedagogical principle.

The school attaches great importance to teaching in a homely, present, and safe environment, taking into account the individual’s personality and development stages, as well as what the child is susceptible to. Therefore, one of the principles is that there should be no more than 18 pupils in each class. There are also several classes that are taught together, e.g., grade 4 and grade 5 is taught together as one group.

At Kassebølle Friskole interdisciplinary and fluent transitions between subjects where this feels natural and encouraging for a holistic understanding of human life is very important. It means to cater for the pupil’s education and formation the best possible way.
