Why GNS?

Each child holds our attention at Glenlyon Norfolk School, a Junior Kindergarten to Grade 12 co-ed independent day and boarding school that is firmly rooted in the values of the International Baccalaureate (IB) and the Round Square. As one of only 5% of the 377 IB schools in Canada that are authorized to offer the full continuum of IB programmes, GNS is proud of its unique 'IB Advantage': a 21st-Century approach that educates the whole child and creates global thinkers. GNS offers boarding options for students who are not residents of Victoria and provides an extensive age-appropriate co-curricular program.

Financial support is available. Call 250.370.6801 to speak with someone in our Admissions Office or write to us at

We wish to acknowledge and respect the Straits Salish Peoples on whose traditional territory we gather. Specifically, we recognize the Lekwungen Peoples known today as the Songhees Nation and the Esquimalt Nation, whose historical relationships with the land where we live, work, play and learn continue to this day.
