The British International School - Stavanger
Established in 1977, The British International School of Stavanger
in South West Norway is an independent non-profit making foundation
administered by a board of Governors.
It is situated approximately eight kilometres south of Stavanger
The school is modern and complies strictly with the design and
safety requirements of the Norwegian authorities. In all, there
are twenty-four classrooms, smaller rooms for group work and special
rooms for special education, art, music, science, French and two
computer rooms. There is a fully equipped and spacious gymnasium
as well as a woodwork room, assembly hall and extensive libraries
with a computer indexing system.
The principal educational aim of the school is to meet the needs
and expectations of parents, wishing to have their children educated
in an English school, by providing them with the more traditional
aspects of a proven British education. This not only covers the
requirements of National Curriculum, but also those of Common Entrance
levels. This ensures that when the time comes they will be able
to transfer to British curriculum schools either in Independent
or State sectors, or to local Norwegian schools.
The Principal puts great emphasis on developing the individual
qualities and talents of the children at The British International
School of Stavanger following a policy of encouraging children to
have confidence in their own abilities and to develop a caring attitude
