Primary School | Phorms München

    In our state-recognised Primary School our children study in German and English, using the immersion method. A teaching team consisting of a teacher and a teaching assistant look after a class, one being a German and the other an English native speaker.

    The use of the two languages is well balanced throughout the school day. The primary school follows the Bavarian curriculum and, in addition, elements of the Cambridge Primary programme are used, especially in respect to the English programme.

    Our classrooms are decorated jointly by the teachers and students in a welcoming and appealing way in order to create a positive learning environment. Every classroom is equipped with an interactive whiteboard which supports a wide range of teaching methods. Differentiation is a key aspect of our school. Every child should be challenged and, at the same time, receive individual support in order to be able to work up to their full potential. This applies to children who need more support and also those children who are gifted. In addition to differentiation in the classroom, we offer in-depth teaching of mathematics to students whose skills are above the current curriculum, for example. We also offer German as a foreign language for children whose native language is not German.

    We also place particular emphasis on the musical education of our children. A considerable number of students enjoy singing in our primary choir. Every six weeks, an internal school concert takes place in which all students of the campus who play an instrument may participate and show their talent in front of an audience. Additionally, our music teachers organise concerts with our primary and secondary choirs and our orchestra inside and outside of the school.
