Dear students, parents, and colleagues,
A very special school year is coming to an end.
10 years after its foundation and its early days in container classrooms in 2008, Phorms has been located on Wendenstraße since 2012.
Starting with only 30 students, we will exceed 500 children in the 2018/19 school year following 10 years’ successful development.
This jump in figures alone is impressive proof of what we have accomplished over the past decade. Our 10 year anniversary gives reason to celebrate. We will mark this anniversary in a special event with parents, colleagues and special guests. It is an occasion to thank everyone who contributed to the school’s development. We would like to thank all parents who believed in our concept and who have shown their trust and support of our work by enrolling their children. We also thank our colleagues who have taken care of your children, pedagogically and administratively, in the Kita as well as the primary and secondary schools over the past decade. Our Friends’ Association, under the chairmanship of Dr. K. A. Nagel, deserves a special mention. Without the Association’s economic engagement the development of the Phorms Campus Hamburg would not have been possible in the same successful way.
Dr. Karl-Heinz Korsten & Sylvia Lehnhof
Former Head of School & Administrative Director
After 5 1/2 years as Head of School of Phorms Campus Hamburg and 46 years’ experience in schools, I will now, in my 70th year, return to Baden with my wife where our three daughters and six grandchildren are waiting.
As my successor, Phorms Education has been able to recruit Mr Peter Kubasch, who is a secondary teacher of German/English and who has been Head of School at a private secondary school in Lower Saxony for the past 15 years.
Mr Kubasch is a very experienced Head of School who will take over my position from 1 August 2018.
I am very glad that we have been able to educate our own management trainees with Ms Lehnhof, Ms Dützmann (Head of Primary), Ms Häusler (Head of Kindergarten) and Ms Röhner (Secondary Coordinator) and pass on responsibility to them. The positive development and the newly-constituted management team also give me confidence that the school will continue its success in the future.
Dr. Karl-Heinz Korsten
