The school opened in 1850 as Den Tankske Skole, funded by an endowement established by merchant Hans Tank and his wife around fifty years earlier.[1][2]

The school building is 150 years old and in bad shape[according to whom?]. Due to this the school will move to new buildings in 4 years time[when?].
