The school was originally founded in 1893 in Notodden by Asbjørn Knutsen, but later moved to its current location in Gvarv.

In addition to these subjects, students can also choose from around 100 different modules, which are subjects the students can choose from outside what would be their typical class-related subjects.


The school has boarding for 130 students. They live in the various boarding houses on campus where they have either one-person or two-person rooms. The houses are two-story buildings (with the exception of Tunheim having only one, and Sagaheim having tree), each floor housing either only males or only females. Occupants of a floor share a livingroom, showers and lavatory facilities.
