Christina Bek was appointed Headteacher for Dania School in July. “Christina is the longest-serving member of our teaching staff and a passionate advocate and practitioner of child-centric Scandinavian education”, says Chair of Governors, Peter Melbye. “Her appointment is significant for us in a number of ways. Christina is our first Headteacher who qualified as a teacher in Denmark, and we are pleased to have been able to promote from within to fill the Headteacher position.”

“I feel privileged to be given the opportunity to lead Dania through the next phase of its development”, says Christina Bek. “Dania has ambitious plans to broaden the school to include children from all Scandinavian backgrounds starting this year with the enrolment of its first Swedish pupils. We are also adding Swedish teachers to our teaching staff and we will be working hard to expand further with new offerings for Norwegian families.”


Dania School was founded in 2013 and will celebrate its 5th anniversary in September 2018. The school offers Scandinavian primary school education to families of all backgrounds along with Scandinavian language lessons for children aged 3-11. Our goal is to inspire our children to be active, confident, responsible, and successful individuals. We utilise the best practices from Scandinavian teaching to ensure our pupils achieve learning goals in both Scandinavian and English curriculums so they go into further education fully prepared for the challenges that lie ahead.

Dania School is located in Islington, London. For more information visit Dania’s website ( or it’s Facebook page (
