In order to enable as many children as possible to access our educational programmes, Phorms tuition fees are income-based.
The monthly tuition fee in the school year 2023/24 will be calculated based on the annual gross income of 2021. The tuition fee will be adapted for each school year, i.e. for the school year 2024/25 the annual gross income of 2022 will be used to calculate the tuition fee, for 2025/26 the income of 2023 and so on.
Please consult our admissions team for the exact calculation of the tuition fees for kindergarten, primary school and secondary school.

For students who participate in the IB Certificates, there is an additional monthly fee of 50 euro for each certificate. In the school year 2023/24, we offer the IB English Certificate and the IB Business Management Certificate amongst others. There are additional fees for the registration for the IB Diploma or the certificates as well as the examination fees per subject.
We offer a sibling discount of 15 percent on the monthly tuition fee for all siblings (including the first child) in kindergarten and school. The sibling discount for Secondary School is applied after the deduction of the school based funding. We do not offer a sibling discount in crèche.
School based funding
Phorms Munich Secondary School receives school based funding (Schulgeldersatz) for each student according to Article 47 BaySCHFG in connection with paragraph 22 AVBaySCHFG. The school based funding amounts to €110.00 in the school year 2023/24. The amount is offset with the tuition fee and is already included in the payable tuition fee shown above. For the month of August, payment of the school based funding is not effected, the tuition fee, however, will not be increased by the amount of the school based funding not received for that month.
The tuition fees for crèche and kindergarten are tax deductible as extraordinary expenses, but only if the child lives in the same household as the parent. In a single-parent family, if the parent is working, or if both parents are working in a two-parent family, two thirds of the child care expenses can be stated as work-related child care costs up to a maximum amount of 4.000 Euros per child and can be deducted as operating costs when determining the gross family income. This does not apply to expenses which are related to extracurricular activities or tuition for special talents, or expenses for sporting and leisure activities.
30% of the school fees for primary and secondary school are tax deductible as extraordinary expenses. This does not include accommodation, day care or food costs for the child. Since 2008, the tax authorities have stipulated that 5,000 Euros is the maximum amount possible for tax reduction for extraordinary expenses. This means that parents cannot deduct more than 5,000 Euros per child (30% of 16,667 Euros) for school fees from their tax liability (§ 10 Paragraph 1 Clause 9 of German Income Tax Act, Special Expenses).
Day care costs (e.g. Phorms morning care and Phorms afternoon programme, but not external clubs) are also tax deductible as work-related child care costs. The child must live in the same household as the parent and must be under 14 years of age. In a single-parent family, if the parent is working, or if both parents are working in a two-parent family, two thirds of the child care expenses can be stated as work-related child care costs up to a maximum amount of 4.000 Euros per child and can be deducted as operating costs when determining the gross family income. This does not apply to expenses which are related to extracurricular activities or tuition for special talents, or expenses for sporting and leisure activities.
