In September 2007, the Phorms Campus München began operating with six primary school classes. Just one year later, it had already expanded to include a nursery and a secondary school. Since the daycare centre opened in 2013, children aged between 18 months and 18 years have been cared for and taught in two languages on the campus. A positive campus atmosphere facilitates the completely bilingual German and English learning and teaching concept. That’s because school isn’t just a place to learn, but a place to live your life. The all-day concept means that teachers and children spend a lot of time together. This allows teachers to work intensively with students and focus on their specific needs. As it developed further, the location expanded through extensive construction works over the years. More space for the growing school was created in 2013 when the nursery moved into a neighbouring building with a large outdoor area next to the school. Now, around 650 children and young people are cared for and taught in two languages on the school campus. The secondary school, which has offered the International Baccalaureate (IB) diploma alongside the German Abitur since 2014/2015, expanded in 2016 with the addition of three specialist rooms in the Johann von Lamont building. In the same year, the first Abitur class grad­u­ated from the Phorms Campus München – a significant milestone, and not just for the school leavers themselves. The campus is now marking its tenth anniversary which it celebrated at the summer party. The ten-year anniversary of the site also coincided with the good news that the primary school and secondary school had been state-accredited. ‘This is confirmation to all of the teaching staff of their wonderful work in the last few years,’ says Peter Kemmer, Head of School at the Phorms Campus München.
