Katedralskolan i Åbo, Turku
The school was presumably founded in 1276 for education of boys to become servants of the Church.
The current schoolhouse was built after the conflagration of Turku in 1827. In the 1970s Svenska klassiska lyceum and Åbo svenska flicklyceum, The Swedish Girls' Secondary School of Turku, were united and the old school name Katedralskolan i Åbo, the Cathedral School of Turku, was revived.
In 1977, the introduction of the comprehensive school system in Turku also caused the transferral of the Katedralskolan to the City of Turku.
