Welcome to our Secondary School

Our private school in Berlin-Zehlendorf is housed in a listed building in the nice and green south-western area of Berlin. Our bilingual campus houses a nursery, primary and secondary school all under one roof. Here we offer a German-English community for about 500 children and young people aged 1 to 18 years.

We seek to maintain a cosmopolitan, warm and welcoming environment. We very much enjoy and promote the familiar atmosphere we have created right from the start in 2008.

Bilingual Education

Bilingualism promotes cognitive development in such areas as awareness of language, creativity and flexible thinking. Students who have been learning in a bilingual environment for many years perform above average in foreign languages, in their own mother tongue and in other subjects.

Our Secondary School continues the bilingual concept introduced in our nursery and Primary School. Teaching takes place in accordance with the immersion method, meaning that all content is delivered exclusively in either German or English.

All our students sit exams for the Intermediate Secondary School Certificate (MSA) at the end of Year 10 and the Upper Secondary School Certificate (Abitur) in Year 12. Students in their last two years at Phorms may enroll for the C1 level of English proficiency exam, the Cambridge Advanced English Certificate (CAE), to confirm professional level English for tertiary institutions or future employment.

Income-Dependent Tuition Fees

We would like to make our educational resources available to all children; no matter their parental financial backgrounds. For this reason, the tuition fee is scaled and based on the families’ income.
