OUR CLASSES

Our teaching is based on the premise that happy children learn better! Our teachers strive to create a classroom atmosphere that is creative, lively and fun. Learning to read and write in German is introduced gradually; our experience shows that children progress more effectively once they are more established in the English language.

AGE GROUP 4-6 YEARS OLD

Our youngest children are engaged in making the transition from pre-school to regular school; we therefore are careful not to overload them, and keep it playful with lots of games, songs, and arts+crafts.

AGE GROUP 7-9 YEARS OLD

We are introducing more academic activities in this age group such as focused reading activities, starting creative writing, and working with the LÜK system. 

Alongside this we continue to offer a child-centred curriculum which reflects our children's interests.

AGE GROUP 10-13 YEARS OLD 

We are slowly preparing the children for their German GCSE exam (should they wish to strive for this, not every child wants to). We are planning to offer A-level exams in the future.
