Founded in 1985, Tjele Efterskole’s main aim today is to enable students to ‘be outstanding’. It does so through a varied and action-packed programme and over the last few decades it has become known particularly for its wheel-based subjects. “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. Teachers include a previous world champion in freestyle BMX and a past national trainer in BMX race.
