German Primary Programme

Our German Primary Programme offers the opportunity for our German-speaking Primary School students from Klasse 1 to Klasse 4 to study core subjects in German, following the German Curriculum, while integrating into the English Curriculum with non-core subjects and a variety of whole school activities. In Klasse 5 (year 6) subjects such as Mathematics and German are still taught in German, while the remaining subjects are taught in English within the International Stream.


Core subjects in the German Primary Programme are taught in German according to the Thuringia Curriculum and the Kernlehrplan der Region 20/21 for grade 1 - 4. The Thuringia Curriculum is the curriculum used by all German schools in the Northern hemisphere. The core subjects, German, Maths, Topic (Humanities and Science), Art and PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education) are taught in German. Typical German text books support the lessons.

Native German Students

All of our German Primary teachers are qualified and certified teachers with a degree certificate to match German standards. Each classroom has the additional support of a Teaching Assistant.

A Bilingual Education

Music and Physical Education are taught in English as part of the English National Curriculum. Students also attend the weekly assemblies, participate in school productions and go on field trips - all conducted in English. English as an Additional Language (EAL) support and Chinese lessons are offered.

Integration of the programme into the whole primary school is very important.

The German Primary School Programme is completely integrated into The British School of Beijing. This means that students will have access to all school facilities, the classrooms are placed in the main body of the school campus and students will have their lunch and break times in the same place as all other students.

Full Circle Learning Experience

Our German Primary students also benefit from the school’s pastoral care, school counselling and Special Educational Needs programme. They can also choose from a variety of both German and English After School Activities.

Our German Primary Programme is fully supported by the German Embassy and the major German companies Volkswagen/Audi, BMW, Daimler and Siemens. 

We welcome you to visit our school to see how the German Primary Programme works within our school.
