Our Campus: A modern learning environment
The attractive redbrick building at our campus in central Berlin dates from the late 19th century and houses the oldest and largest of the Phorms Schools. Our bilingual private school offers a bilingual community in German and English for children and young people from nursery and primary school to secondary school.

Our nursery is open for children from two years on. Our pedagogues are German and English native speakers. Language plays a key role within our educational concept. Our bilingual German-English nursery school attaches great importance to providing a high degree of support in both German and English.
The children learn the two languages according to the so-called immersion method. Each pedagogue speaks exclusively in his or her native language of either English or German. This enables the children to learn both languages within a natural context via the morning circle, at meals and through songs, stories and games. Our daily routine reinforces language acquisition.
Excellent equipment and a pedagogically well thought-out interior design support and promote joint learning in one place: We have three excellently equipped sports halls, which are also used by our cooperation partner ALBA Berlin. State-of-the-art school laboratories are available for our science lessons. Experienced music educators teach in specially equipped rooms, so that making music together at school is the focus of the subject music. Smartboards in all individually equipped classrooms support the learning opportunities for our students. Our theatre hall with a fully equipped stage including a light and sound system enables the school community to meet regularly.
Our private school places a particular emphasis on individual support. We are proud to be able to offer our students a wide range of interesting activities to reveal and develop their talents at an early stage. From Year 3 in our primary school children can opt to study different elective subjects. Our afternoon programme also offers students an extensive and varied agenda. From Year 7 in our secondary school we provide a diverse choice of elective subjects in the areas of language and science. Our school also supports children with special educational needs, who study in one class with the other children.
This range of activities has an additional benefit. All courses take place within the safe environment of the school, meaning that both students and parents do not need to undertake extended journeys at the end of the school day. This is invaluable in a city such as Berlin.
