The Phorms school Munich is an ideal place for students of all age groups to explore the world of education together. The campus is situated next to the Englischer Garten (a public park) in the Munich district of Bogenhausen, providing a comfortable, varied educational setting for nearly 650 children and adolescents.
Built in 1851, the campus’s beautiful brick building is home to both the primary school and the grammar school. It contains a number of eye-catching details, including the porter’s office at the entrance (where the students are greeted every morning), a period-representative entrance hall with winding staircase and various embellishments in the interior brickwork. Immediately next to the school is a former artist’s villa – built in 1897 – which has been home to the Phorms Munich daycare centre, nursery and preschool since 2013.
A central component of the Munich campus is its bilingual approach: English and German are treated with equal regard and are spoken both inside and outside the classroom (in an age-appropriate way for students). This international disposition is reflected in the origins and backgrounds of our teaching staff and the families of our students. Interest in and understanding of others, openness and tolerance are part of daily campus life.
The music program also plays an important role in the school day, and many students are enthusiastic members of the primary school choir. Every six weeks, a public concert is held in which all students are invited to play their respective instruments. Additionally, the music department organises regular concerts – both on and off campus – in conjunction with the school orchestra and the primary and grammar school choirs. Apart from the Bavarian matriculation exam, students can earn an International Baccalaureate Diploma.
