School Description

The Norwegian School is an independent school registered for 130 boys and girls aged 6–16 years. The school was established in 1981 for Norwegian expatriate pupils who are temporarily residing in London. Originally, the school was registered for pupils aged from 3–16. However, in August 2014, the Norwegian Kindergarten in London registered itself separately from the main school to educate children between the ages of 3 and 5 years, and did not form part of this inspection. There are 103 pupils on roll with seven pupils who have a statement of special educational needs or an education, health and care plan. The school is non-denominational and follows the Norwegian National Curriculum. Almost all pupils speak English as an additional language, but some have fluency as they have one parent who is an English speaker, or they have lived in other English-speaking countries, such as the USA. Many pupils enter and leave the school at different times during the year and very few stay for more than two years. Sometimes, two to three pupils will join and leave the school in the space of a month. The school aims to ensure that ‘pupils enjoy school, are partners in cooperation, should feel responsible for their own learning, obtain knowledge about England and gain competence in information and communication technology’. The school is a registered charity with a board of six directors. The headteacher joined the school in August 2015.
