Admissions Process

Our admissions procedure in detail

1. Online Registration

As a first step, we kindly ask you to register your child by filling in the online application form. You will then receive a confirmation email. In spring before the desired admission, we will contact you in regards to the admissions process.

2. Trial Days

Each child needs to go through our admissions process which differs depending on the grade applied for. Thus, we get to know the children and are able to determine whether the concept of the Josef-Schwarz-Schule suits them.

For the trial days for new reception classes we choose children based on the following criteria:

  1. Siblings or a switch from another Phorms school
  2. Social and cultural diversity as well as a balanced proportion of girls and boys
  3. Time of registration at Phorms

During the testing for reception, the children solve age-appropriate tasks and play with other children of the same age. If applying for admission during the school year, the child will visit the respective class for one day and participate in the regular school day.

Parallel to the trial days parents will receive more information about reception and primary school and will be invited to a personal conversation regarding their child and their questions.

Our 2023 get-to-know-you days for Reception and Year 1 will take place for the first time during the carnival holidays - please take this into account when planning your holidays.

3. Place Offer

Based on the pedagogical feedback after the trial days,  we offer selected children a place at our school. The place offers are sent out via email.

4. School Contract

Once the parents accept the place we will send out the contract by post.
