Schneekloths Skole

Schneekloths Skole was a school which under changing names existed between 1854 and 1992 in Copenhagen, Denmark. Its former premises on Værnedamsvej in Frederiksberg now houses the French-language school Lycée Français Prins Henrik.


The school was founded by Hans Schneekloth on 2 May 1854 as "Realskolen for Frederiksberg og Vesterbro". It was initially based on Vesterbrogade but a new, purpose-built school building on Værnedamsvej (No. 13B) was inaugurated in 1856. It was soon expanded with a grammar school whose first students graduated in 1863. The name of the school was changed to "Schneekloths Latin- og Realskole" in 1882. It moved to a new building away from the street on the same lot (Mo. 13A) in 1885.[1] Its old building (No. 13B) was purchased by Aksel Mikkelsen and turned into a teacher training college under the name Dansk Sløjdlærerskole in 1886.[2]

In 1904 Schneekloths Skole was merged with Hertz' Forberedelsesskole (formerly Phillippavej Skole) under the name "Schneekloths Latin- og Realskole og Hertz forberedelsesskole".

On 1 August 1919 the grammar school (latin- og realskolen) was taken over by the state under the name Svanholm Gymnasium-Schneekloths Skole while the primary school remained a private school. In 1930 the name of the secondary school was changed to Statsgymnasiet Schneekloths Skole. The school was a boys' school until 1969 when it moved to Brøndbyerne. Im 1986, it was taken over by Copenhagen County under the name Schneekloths Gymnasium. It closed in 1992.
