In Norway children start in 1st grade the year they turn 6. To be given a place, your child must be registered with the National population register (Folkeregisteret). 

The Norwegian school system is divided into three levels:

  • Primary school (1st to 7th grade)
  • Secondary school (8th to 10th grade)
  • Upper secondary school (1st to 3rd year)

Children start in 1st grade the year they turn 6. Your child will automatically be given a place at the school in your school district as long as you are registered with Folkeregisteret. As a newcomer, it is important to check that you are registered with Folkeregisteret.
