The Phorms campus Hamburg was founded in 2008. Trust and respect among the school staff, students and parents are the number one priority at the school. This is aided by its intimate atmosphere. The bilingual (German-English) private school is located in central Hamburg, not far from the Hafencity district and Außenalster lake. The campus embraces the international character and cultural openness of the city of Hamburg. The many vibrant facets of the metropolitan region are reflected in the campus’s daycare centre, preschool, primary school and grammar school.
The all-day, bilingual teaching programme provided at the school is designed to optimise the intellectual development of the roughly 430 children and adolescents in attendance. Accordingly, the teachers give the students plenty of room to satisfy their creativity, pursue independent learning objectives and seize a spirit of discovery. The teachers also support the students’ innate curiosity and joy of learning via project-oriented lessons and regular musical and singing sessions.
Other key components in the Phorms Hamburg curriculum include team and project work, the principles of logical thinking, media literacy, creativity and artistic subjects. Here, the school focuses on aspects that complement the course content and facilitate learning, such as school trips, experiencing natural phenomena in everyday life, the school library, confident use of smart boards, laptops and tablets, and a wide range of extracurricular activities. The teaching is rounded off by one-to-one study support and tailored language tuition in German or English for students that require it.
