Throughout its history, Birralee has gained a special place in Trondheim as a stable, good quality school and kindergarten, offering excellent education in English. Our journey started back in 1973 when Margot Tønseth recognised the need for an English speaking school and kindergarten in Trondheim.


1973 – School and Kindergarten start with 13 students at Lilleby.

1975 – School and Kindergarten move to Kalvskinnet (current location).

2004 – A change in legislation makes it possible to reduce the school fees drastically. Making the school more accessible for everyone.

2006 - Birralee Middle School opens its doors at Falkenborg Gård.

2008 – The Middle School is approved as a University of Cambridge Exam Centre.  

2008 – Best school in Norway’s National Tests!

2010 – Students and staff move to a temporary location at Brøseth due to a planned renovation of the School Building.

2011 – Kindergarten, Primary and Middle School move back to a completely renovated School Building at Kalvskinnet.
