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.

We look forward to sharing all that we have to offer with you and your children. As new 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. As existing parents, thank you for your continued support.

It is a great privilege to be the new Principal of the British International School Stavanger. Having been a Headteacher in the UK and in China I hope that my experience can help BISS continue on its journey to excellence.

Since arriving I have been struck by the friendly family atmosphere and the strong sense of community. As a school, we value the rich cultural diversity the students bring – they are a delight to be around. Our staff are passionate, highly qualified and dedicated, driven by our vision to create and promote role models for the future. Families play a crucial role in our home/school partnership and 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 is a wonderful addition to our well-resourced buildings and links us to three forested hilltops and the beautiful Gandsfjord seashore close by. Younger students engage in forest school activities adjacent to their classrooms and outdoor learning opportunities for all abound in the nearby mountains and lakes. The school prides itself on providing the highest quality of international academic education. We nurture and support our students to fulfil their potential as responsible global citizens.

The world is rapidly changing and is becoming increasingly complex. We want every student to leave us more confident, more self-assured and better equipped to meet the challenges of the 21st century and beyond.

We look forward to sharing all that we have to offer with you and your children. As new 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. As existing parents, thank you for your continued support.
