Birralee International School & Kindergarten Trondheim
Welcome to Birralee! Our school and kindergarten provide an English-speaking education for children aged 4-16 living in Trondheim, central Norway.
The Australian founder gave the school the name ‘Birralee’ meaning a ‘safe place for children’ – we do our best to provide a stimulating and secure learning environment in which we value each child as an individual. The school and kindergarten are owned by a non-profit making foundation.
Our curriculum is based on the British National Curriculum, an internationally recognised high quality curriculum used in many international and English speaking schools throughout the world. The curriculum has been modified to suit the needs of international students and also to meet the requirements of the Norwegian National Curriculum.
The curriculum is approved by the Norwegian Department of Education and Research. Our students participate in the Norway’s National tests and have the possibility to take IGCSE (International General Certificate of Secondary Education) exams.
The school is approved as a University of Cambridge exam centre and is a member of the European Council of International Schools.
If you are thinking of coming to Trondheim and have children within our age range, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We would be pleased to hear from you and to welcome you to our ‘safe place for children’.

If you have recently arrived in Norway, you may find it difficult to track down important information about Norwegian society. “New in Norway” has gathered information from public agencies that you may find useful in your new life.
