You are obliged to attend all lessons punctually, hand in all written assignments on the designated date and take part in all written and oral mock exams.

If you are absent from lessons or do not hand in assignments you might be sceduled for an interview. The purpose of the interview will be to establish the reasons for your absenteeism so that it can be reduced.

Hereafter the procedure is as follows:

  • If your absenteeism continues you will be sceduled for another interview.
  • If your absenteeism continues still, you will receive a written caution. If you are less than 18 years old one of your parents or your guardian will have to sign it. If you are more than 18 years old you must sign it yourself.
  • If your absenteeism continues further still, the school can decide one or several sanctions (see Rule violation)

If you don’t observe the Study and School Rules, the school can decide on sanctions against you. The sanctions will always depend on a specific assessment.

The sanctions can take the following forms:

Study trips and ekskursions are learning activities outside the school’s premises. This means that you and your class mates represent Grenaa Gymnasium at the places you visit.

From this follows that

  • The School Regulations and Code of Conduct apply also on study trips and excursions
  • You can not drink any alcohol on a study trip or excursion, unless permission has been given by the teachers
  • You can not consume or be intoxicated by any kind of euphoriant


And therefore

  • If your behavior is inappropriate, the teachers can send you home without any warning and at your own expenses.
