Storhamar upper secondary school offers programmes in both general studies and vocational education. Our vocational courses are in the programmes for Healthcare, childhood and youth development and Restaurant and food processing.

Since 2008, we also offer a three-year programme in Sports and physical education, as well as a one-year course in Supplementary studies qualifying for higher education (Vg3 påbygg).

The duration of each school year is 38 weeks. A typical school day starts at 8:15 a.m. and ends at 3:40 p.m. On completion,students are awarded certificates or diplomas. 

The Sports and physical education programme combines academic subjects such as Norwegian, English, Maths, Science, Geography, Social studies, History and Foreign languages, with theory of training, leadership and training management, sports in society, and a variety of physical activities. In addition, our students have a choice of specializing in recreational sports or top-level sports such as soccer, ice hockey, handball, or individually tailored strength and conditioning. The three-year programme leads to university admission certification and an opportunity to study further at a college or university. It also serves as a basis for a job as trainer in the fields of sports and physical education and outdoor life, especially in children’s sports.
