Libraries

The school has two well stocked libraries, one catering for the Lower Primary School and another for the Upper Primary and Secondary Schools.

A teacher librarian is present in each library to manage the facilities and to lead focused library and research sessions. These timetabled sessions ensure students develop a love of books and the necessary skills for advancing their learning.

Students also have access to the online Encyclopedia Britannica, the online school newspaper, The Day and other educational online resources.

Both libraries were completely renovated six years ago and the book stock is regularly up-dated. An electronic retrieval system (Eclipse), is used for managing the book stock. The upper school library has an extensive stock of Norwegian language fiction and non-fiction books. The school also has books available in French, German, Italian and Russian.


The school is big enough to help broaden our child's horizons, but small enough to recognise our child as an individual.

Secondary school students are able to use the upper school library after school for study and homework.

In addition to the resources available in the Upper School library, Sixth Form students have a range of textbooks and journals available to them at the Sixth Form campus. Sixth Form students are also issued reader tickets for the University of Stavanger student library.

Stavanger and Sandnes both have excellent public library facilities, including an extensive range of English and other foreign language books. Films and music are also widely available for loan at both libraries. Children of all ages can enjoy these local facilities.
