In the year of 2019/2020 around 830 students at the age of 11-18 are taught at our grammar school. Our students learn English, French, Latin and Spanish. Additionally we offer students from year 7 and older to learn Swedish in an extracurricular activity and take part in an exchange to the Swedish speaking part of Finland. Apart from that we offer much more extracurricular activities in the fields of sports, music, science and languages. In our daily school life we focus on science, languages and social sciences. In addition particular emphasis in our school life is placed on core skills such as methodical and communicational competence, social skills like decision-making, responsibility for oneself and one’s health, for others and our planet and civil courage (especially against racism).Our school is located near the city centre of Bochum. The proximity to the city and the connection to public transport enable us to go on trips and explore nearby sights very well. We would really like to establish an exchange programme with an English, Spanish or French speaking school maybe starting with an email contact between students that hopefully develops into a real exchange. We are open to all kinds of proposals. As there is a lot to experience around Bochum and our students are keen on learning languages and getting to know other international students, we would really like to have you here as our guests.
