EDUCATION IN GERMANY

Whether you have already moved, or are looking for international schools in Germany before taking the leap, you’ll find many excellent state schools as well as a number of private and international schools across the country catering to the needs of expat children and international education for local families seeking bilingual or even trilingual schooling for their children. 

One of the biggest dilemmas facing international families when relocating to Germany is where to educate our children. Whether to follow the national curriculum, opt for a public, bilingual or European school or choose one of the numerous private international schools in Germany is a much debated topic amongst expat residents. 

Whatever your criteria and needs, the following sections aim to give an insight into the options available to parents, with the top international schools in Berlin, Frankfurt, Munich and Hamburg listed, as recommended by our community of expat families living throughout Germany. Below you will also find an overview of the state school system, with each stage explained in detail, including the myriad of different options available in secondary school that lead to the final exam stage.

We are delighted to be partnering with St George’s schools in Germany which offer international education in Munich, Dusseldorf Rhein-Ruhr and Cologne.

St. George’s believes that school is a fundamental chapter in a lifetime of learning, and it’s their aim to make it an extraordinary one.

St. George’s School Düsseldorf Rhein-Ruhr

When Marietta Horton founded St. George’s Schools in 1985, she had a unique vision: to offer pupils infinite opportunities to excel, and to lead a life that makes a difference. It is through this culture that St. George’s British International Schools have become a place where children love to go to school.

St. George’s School in Düsseldorf Rhein-Ruhr fosters this original vision and has grown into a distinctive, highly regarded institution that pairs ambitious academic education that pushes beyond the core curriculum, with a caring pastoral infrastructure which values each individual.

The day school for pupils aged 2 – 18 follows the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework and the National Curriculum of England from Pre-Nursery to Year 9. They provide the opportunity to choose IGCSE studies at Key Stage 4, followed by the International Baccalaureate (IB) in the final two years before graduation. The St. George’s British International Schools are IB World Schools offering the IB Diploma Programme (DP) and the IB Career-related Programme (CP).

The four-strand approach – education, innovation, culture and responsibility – is conveyed through relevant programmes and experiences that are collaborative, integrative and pioneering. Graduates join the global community as confident discerning thinkers who are resilient, socially conscious and prepared to make the most of their opportunities. Leading a life that makes a difference, embracing responsibility and seeking to influence others positively.

St. George’s school Düsseldorf Rhein-Ruhr offers excellent educational experiences to the families of the globally reputed Rhein-Ruhr area. The region is grounded by a substantial cultural heritage, and the highest density of further education institutions in Europe. This is a truly international school community which welcomes pupils and parents from surrounding cities and from over 45 countries.
