In Sweden, all children and teenagers who have graduated lower secondary school have a right to an upper secondary school education that should provide a stable basis for work, higher education and active participation in public life.
Upper secondary school (gymnasieskolan) offers different types of programmes:
Sollefteå municipality’s upper secondary school is named Gudlav Bilder School, after Gudlav Bilder, a rich man who lived in the 14th century and donated the land on which the school stands. Gudlav Bilder School is a modern school with active links to its history and a location in the midst of the beautiful Ådalen area.
The school strives to the fullest extent to adapt itself to the interests of young people, as well as to satisfy the long-term needs of our society and its labour market.
The 750 students who attend Gudlav Bilder School can choose from a broad range of educational programmes.
In addition, Gudlav Bilder School includes special upper secondary schools for skiing and natural resource management.
