The boarding school Herlufsholm has been in turmoil recently after TV 2’s revealing documentary.

Now the school publishes one itself overview over the number of violations in the period from 2016-2022, which is based on inquiries via, among other things, the whistleblower scheme that the school has established.

Here it appears that in the eight years there have been 13 cases which have led to sanctions.

The violations that have been investigated relate to bullying, violence or sexual abuse.

The sanctions that have been imposed cover aggravated written warning, repatriation, discharge and possible notification to authorities.

Through the whistleblower scheme, which covers the period from 1987 to 2022, five inquiries have been received.

Of these, four of the inquiries have been processed, the school announces.

The crisis over Herlufsholm has also left its mark all the way into the Royal House, as the Crown Prince Couple’s eldest son, Prince Christian, goes to school, and their eldest daughter, Princess Isabella, is expected to start soon.

After much criticism and many questions, the Royal House announced on Instagram last week.

‘We want to look at the school’s upcoming initiatives, but also at what we as parents can demand and contribute. The goal must be a future Herlufsholm, where all students – no matter who they are – thrive and can feel safe based on healthy values, ‘said Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary.
