The Norwegian School in London is an independent Norwegian international school situated in a quiet residential area in Wimbledon, South West London. Housed in a Victorian villa which has been extended and adapted many times to suit our needs, The Norwegian School in London has now been running successfully since 1982 and has a dedicated, committed and experienced staff.  We offer a Norwegian education for students aged 6-16.At The Norwegian School in London our motto is, ‘Optimum Duo Mundi – The best of both worlds’. We are proud of our safe, caring and stimulating environment where students learn well from the Norwegian curriculum ‘Kunnskapsløftet’, as well as benefiting from using London as our classroom as much as possible. We have an excellent academic record and encourage each and every student to achieve their personal best whilst working cooperatively with consideration for others and developing their own skills and interests.

We are extremely proud of our students, staff and governors who work together to achieve a positive and happy learning environment. We have the highest expectations of our students and focus on each child’s individual development.

Why choose us?

Some feedback from our parents:

“Where do I start…? We love our school. Amazing environment that truly brings the best out of our children, specially from a social skill standpoint. It provides a firm but supportive learning environment and my 6-year old son looks forward to going to school every day, THIS IS UNHEARD OF specially at his age! His teacher is an absolute gem, so kind and supportive yet firm and disciplined, she goes the extra mile to support me as I learnt to guide my son through his first year in school. Our head teacher is very caring and supportive and very switched on with everything that is going on in and out of school. The whole school is amazing. We feel like we are a big family and parents are very supportive of each other. I couldn’t recommend this school highly enough!” Gisele Partaker, April 2020

“I have so much positive to say about The Norwegian School in London. Our four girls have had very good years here, small classes with close and professional follow-up and not to mention lots of fun. They are so good at going on trips, school camps , great city tour abroad for the secondary school,  lots of theatrical and musical performances each school year to name a few. And not least, I must say that it is really fun for the whole family, both big and small, to be a part of this thriving “little Norway” in London. Siri Helene Vist, 2013-2017

“Attending The Norwegian School in London gave our children a safe transition from Norway to the UK. The school combines both Norwegian and British culture beautifully and the high teacher/pupil ratio gives the opportunity for a close academic follow up of each pupil. The school creates great experiences through regular visits to museums, landmarks and cultural events meaning the pupils are highly motivated for learning. The school is also a social gathering place after school hours with activities for both children and parents.”  Marius Rehn, 2014-2016

“Our family had two children at the primary level in the Norwegian School in London for two years, from 2013 to 2015. The children as well as the parents were very happy with the school. The school is a natural meeting point for Norwegian families in London, both academically and socially. Because the school receives many new students each year, they are very good at integrating new students quickly. The school’s size with relatively small classes gives students a high degree of proximity to the teachers. The teaching staff and administration are highly competent and motivated. They are good at adopting creative and inspiring learning methods. By expanding the number of hours in English, use of English in other subjects and many excursions in London, the students get a good basis in English in a short time. Using London as a classroom is something the school really follows up in practice. We would recommend the Norwegian school for any wholly or partly Norwegian family residing in London.”  Tore Bjørnsen Gilje, 2013-2015
