All the forms that you need to fill out for a successful registration for the European school (bilingual German/English) (SESB) OR/AND for the regular school (monolingual/German only) can be found here.
You can register your child for both areas (European school SESB and regular school) – fill out an application for each area.
It is important to emphasize that – as already described above – there is NO bilingual teaching in the regular school, as is the case in the European school classes!

Please use our checklist, which summarises everything that is important for a successful registration!

Children starting in first grade...

…have a different registration process. Here you have to note that the registration process is a bit more complex. There is a bit more information to consider. These are explained in ‘Your child is going to school’ . Please take the time to read all the information carefully (especially the leaflets from the Steglitz-Zehlendorf school authority)!

Important: The registration of children who will start school for the new school year must be handed in personally by you during the registration period (usually two weeks before the fall break of the school year before school starts).


PLEASE NOTE that we also require the form about the need for support, even if your child does NOT need it!

If your child is already a pupil, you are welcome to send us your application via email ( – all necessary copies and forms must be filled out legibly and attached in the email (preferably as a PDF).

If your child becomes a pupil next school year, registration by email is not possible. Here, it is necessary that you visit the catchment area primary school in person and then also the first choice school. This has to happen during the registration period and the registration documents are handed in in paper form.

We look forward to your registration(s)!
