Bilingual Primary School

A modern pedagogical concept for tomorrow’s world – because lifelong learning needs a good start. Our primary students learn world languages, they experience cultural diversity and they develop their personal strengths. Through hands-on, inquiry-based learning and individual support, students are optimally prepared for the next phase of their school career.

Our language concept
Truly Bilingual – two teachers, two languages
  • Two-way immersion in German and English
  • Natural language acquisition supported in all academic subjects
  • Oral and written bilingualism from the start
  • Additional support from EAL and GAL experts, when needed
  • Spanish lessons from grade 1 (optional)
  • Mother-tongue lessons in a range of additional languages
Learning is fun
Rounded education in a child-friendly environment
  • The NRW curriculum integrated into the IB PYP – the best of both worlds
  • Inquiry-based, interdisciplinary learning focussed on fostering the natural curiosity of children
  • Hands-on projects and regular field trips bring learning to life
  • Art, music and sport integrated into daily school life
  • A comprehensive interreligious programme, teaching students about our truly diverse international community
Discover your potential
Individualised learning
  • Small learning groups with max. 24 students and 2 homeroom teachers
  • Individualised and differentiated learning paths, so no child feels overwhelmed or underchallenged
  • Comprehensive, school-based support team in all areas of school life (languages, maths, social-emotional development)
  • An extensive extracurricular programme, to discover and develop interests and talents
  • Optimal support and care throughout the day, allowing each and every child to reach their full potential
Learning takes time
Well looked after, all day long
  • A full-length school day, with sufficient time for learning, growing and reflecting
  • Meal and recess breaks scheduled at regular intervals, allowing for better concentration during subject lessons
  • Homeroom teachers look after the well-being of their class all day, including meal-times
  • Early morning and late afternoon supervision from 7:00am-6:00pm
  •  Stimulating holiday clubs in the spring, summer and winter breaks
