Bilingual Secondary School Phorms Campus Hamburg

Welcome to the private, state-approved secondary school at the English-German Phorms Campus Hamburg! Learning together and growing together in a small community which is characterised by its internationality - this is exactly what characterises the Phorms secondary school.

Bilingual Education with native speakers

We work in the British-American "cabinet system", i.e. students change rooms for each subject and enter a subject-related world where they adapt to the language of instruction given by the teacher. This is characteristic of our immersive approach: English and German as quasi native languages. Spanish and/or French are added later. In addition, many of our children and young adults bring at least one other language with them from home.

State-recognised Qualifications

As a state-recognised secondary school, we carry out the central written examination in grade 10 like all other schools in Hamburg. This is the first building block for transfer to the senior secondary school. In the summer of 2020, we will celebrate a milestone in our school history: Our oldest students will be the first at the Hamburg campus to take the Hamburg school leaving examination (the Abitur) and will acquire the fully-recognised "Certificate of General Aptitude for University Studies".

Special Offers

In addition to the Hamburg curriculum, modified contents of the Cambridge curriculum are also taught. We offer preparatory courses for Cambridge language exams (C1 Advanced, C2 Proficiency) to our senior high school students (from grade 10). "Homework" is given in careful doses and can be done either at home or at school under teacher supervision. Alternatively, our students can also participate in project groups (AGs) of their own choice during homework time. These workshops are offered by the school's teachers and can be chosen every six months. There is something for every taste: We are happy when school is fun!
