Getting a lot done without overdoing things

Joyful learning is stress-free. That’s why we only give homework in subjects in which regular practice is important: mathematics, English, Latin and German. We practice these subjects in class during our study time. The class teacher accompanies students and helps them to concentrate in the 80 minute study time. The teacher keeps an eye on the progress of the students. And provides support when they get stuck. Young actors or musicians can develop their talents in our elective course program.

The afternoon sessions can be chosen from Monday through Thursday. Two afternoons are part of the core offering and therefore mandatory. Which afternoons these are is up to the student to choose. One or two afternoons can be added as an option. They are booked for half a year at a time.

The core program includes a recess hour and study time in the afternoons. On the other afternoons, elective courses can be taken as an alternative to study time.

The afternoon ends at 4:05 p.m. On Fridays and on days when no afternoon is booked, the school day ends at 2:05 p.m.

Playing and learning go together. You should not miss out on hockey, dodgeball or speedminton. The class’s auxiliary teacher leads joint games at recess hour, which lasts 40 minutes.

Then study time begins: we do exercises in mathematics, English and German (Latin from grade 6 onward) for 20 minutes each. The tasks are set out in our weekly training plan. This enables students to learn to assess their own abilities. And also to check results. The class teacher supports the students. There is no homework to do at home after the study time.

Whether it’s a game of soccer or a round in the park, students decide for themselves what is relaxing during their recess hour. After that, during study time, students study silently in class. A teacher ensures a learner-friendly atmosphere.

And if Latin or math is a bit tricky at times, you can book a special subject study time: Up to 5 students discuss homework with a subject teacher and check results.

In Q 11 and Q 12, students are responsible for organizing their learning. For this purpose, the timetable includes study periods during the school day. Accompanied by a subject teacher, students study in class and prepare for exams.

Depending on their choice of subjects, the students of the upper classes attend their chosen profile subjects in the afternoon. There are no classes in the afternoon on Fridays.

Learn acting from a professional theater director, play the saxophone in a big band, or publish an exciting story as a journalist: You can discover talents and deepen your passions in our elective courses. They can be booked on the third or fourth afternoons as an alternative to study time and they last 80 minutes. The offers include:

  • Rhetoric
  • Youth Choir
  • Big Band
  • Theater
  • Students create an online newspaper
