Herzlich Willkommen

Welcome to the Berlin Bilingual School, a unique and vibrant school in one of the most exciting cities in the world. I am delighted to be leading a school with dedicated, committed and hard-working teachers and Erzieher.

We provide a challenging bilingual curriculum for children whose families have settled in Berlin. As a school we seek to take our pupils and students on a journey of educational and personal development, a journey which harnesses the merits of bilingual German and English education, celebrates cultural diversity and instills a love for learning. We encourage our pupils to be curious about and open to the world around them, become independent thinkers and be ready and prepared to be challenged and challenge themselves in preparation for what the future may hold for them.

We prepare our students for German as well as international qualifications. Our students work hard to achieve their academic goals but as important as academic progress is the personal development of our students and the pastoral care we provide for every child. We encourage every child to follow their own interests, develop and share their talents and pursue other interests in order to allow them to become well-rounded people. Teachers and Erzieher at Berlin Bilingual School work together to support every child in the school during their time here to ensure they reach their full potential.

Visitors often comment on how special Berlin Bilingual School feels when they visit and the school’s happy, welcoming, warm yet purposeful atmosphere. This is exactly the aim of the school, to provide an environment in which children learn, are allowed to develop and explore and where all members of the community treat each other with courtesy, kindness and respect.
