Principal's Welcome

I hope that you will enjoy learning about the many opportunities on offer at the British International School as you explore our website.

Our school is proud of the reputation it enjoys. It is a wonderful place to learn and grow. With over 50 nations represented, the school fosters an international outlook in all students, challenging them both academically and physically to address current issues faced by the world.

Our school has a friendly family atmosphere and enjoys a strong sense of community. We value the rich cultural diversity the students bring to our daily lives. We employ passionate and dedicated teachers, driven by our vision to create and promote role models for the future. Families are encouraged to involve themselves in school life and to integrate and engage alongside the school with the local Norwegian community.

Our open plan landscaping links us to three forested hilltops and the picturesque Gandsfjord seashore is close by. Younger students can engage in forest school activities adjacent to their classrooms and outdoor learning opportunities for all abound in the nearby mountains and lakes. The school provides the highest quality of international academic education. We nurture and support our students to fulfil their potential as responsible global citizens.

We want every student to leave us more confident, more self-assured and well equipped to meet the challenges of the 21st century.

We look forward to sharing all that we have to offer with you and your children. As parents, you are guaranteed a warm welcome and our closest attention in assisting you to make the right decision for your child's education should you choose to join us at the British International School.

Mrs Anne Howells,
