Private Bilingual Secondary School Phorms Berlin Mitte | Phorms Berlin Mitte

    Welcome to the private German-English Phorms secondary school in Berlin-Mitte.

    Our Campus: Everyone Under One Roof

    The secondary school is part of the Phorms Campus Berlin Mitte. The premises are shared with the Phorms nursery and primary school. Here we offer a community in German and English for 715 children and young people from age 2 to 18. This allows all students to benefit from learning together with younger and older students.

    At present, 20 pedagogues teach a total of 175 girls and boys in our secondary school.

    Founded in 2006

    Phorms Berlin was founded in 2006 and is located in an attractive redbrick building in central Berlin. This is where we celebrated our 10th birthday in summer 2016. We are the oldest and largest of all Phorms Education schools.

    Bilingual Education

    Bilingualism is key to the Phorms concept. Our secondary school continues the bilingual concept introduced at nursery school and primary school. Teaching takes place at native speaker level in German and English. Yet, our curriculum is based on the outline curriculum of the federal state of Berlin.


    All our students sit their Intermediate Secondary School Certificate (MSA) at the end of Year 10. The Upper Secondary School Certificate (Abitur) is taken after Year 12.

    As well as receiving those German certificates, students in the top year groups may also collect internationally recognized certificates of the “Advanced Placement Program”.

    Income-Dependent Tuition Fees

    We would like to enable children from families in different income brackets to have access to our educational resources. For this reason, we decided to introduce income-dependent tuition fees.

    Our students' parents keep telling us what they appreciate most about Phorms, namely that, every day, the children like going to school.

    I hope you enjoy our website.
