Located in Central Jutland, Tjele Efterskole’s main aim is to enable students to “be outstanding”. It does so through a varied and action-packed programme including everything from performance to table tennis, but over the last few decades it has become best known for its wheel-based subjects such as BMX and scooter. “The growing popularity of these subjects has meant that we have gradually expanded our expertise and facilities since we first established our BMX race programme 14 years ago,” says principal Kim Hansen. Last year, the school extended its skate park to include a foam pit ramp allowing students to safely practise bold moves such as backflips.
