Why GNS?

Each child holds our attention at Glenlyon Norfolk School, a Junior Kindergarten to Grade 12 coed independent day-school that is firmly rooted in the values of the International Baccalaureate (IB) and the Round Square. As one of only 5% of IB schools in Canada authorized to offer the full continuum of IB programmes, GNS is proud of its unique 'IB Advantage': a 21st-Century approach which educates the whole child and creates global thinkers. GNS offers 5- and 7-day Family 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
