WELCOME TO SKOLEN ST. OLAVS HOSPITAL (Norway)
The School at St. Olavs Hospital offers education at primary and secondary level to pupils/students who are patients at the hospital. We are located at the Unit for Children and Youths and at the Unit for Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. In addition we provide curriculum education for students at college/high school level at other units at the hospital. We maintain a close relationship with the various units.
The school activities are located within the hospital area in Trondheim. Situated in the central part of Norway, Trondheim is the third largest city in the country. Our school has a headmaster and seven teachers. Most of our pupils/students come from the three counties “Møre og Romsdal”, “Sør-Trøndelag” and “Nord Trøndelag”. The State owns the hospital. However, it is Sør-Trøndelag county which is responsible for the School and the teaching of the youngsters (age 6 – 18) at St. Olavs Hospital. The county cooperates with the municipality of Trondheim in the running of the school.We give individual tuition/education to children, youths and adults hospitalized at St. Olavs Hospital who have rights according to the national law of education (“Opplæringslova”).
