The British International School of Stavanger was founded in 1977 and  has facilities for 550 pupils.  The school is situated at Gausel 8 km south of the city of Stavanger.  We cater for pupils aged from 2 years to 16 years and currently have children from over forty different nationalities attending our school. The school takes full advantage of its environs being close to Gausel Forest, Jåttå Children's Farm and the Gandsfjord.

We regard all children as being unique and take pride in working closely with every child, nurturing individual strengths and talents. As an organisation we are committed to personalising our curriculum so that individual learning styles are acknowledged. Assisting every child to achieve their maximum potential is our goal.
