Phorms Education in Hamburg, Northern Germany is an international school offering whole-day bilingual education in German and English. We currently offer nursery school and primary school programs for children from pre-school age up to Year 4. Our school was founded in 2008, making it the most recent Phorms School to be established. It offers a family atmosphere characterised by the high degree of mutual respect which exists between our staff, students and parents.
The private school is located in the heart of the Eimsbüttel district of Hamburg, a lively and cosmopolitan area featuring buildings from the late nineteenth century. We use our location in one of Germany’s most interesting metropolises to organise a wide range of excursions and project-related teaching. Generously proportioned rooms provide good conditions for concentrated and detailed learning.
We believe that it is important to support and motivate every single student in line with his or her own abilities. The aim of our whole-day bilingual teaching is to achieve the very best intellectual development for the children.
