Humboldt-Gymnasium

Our school is situated near the Cologne city centre in a very lively, colourful and diverse neighbourhood and was founded in 1956. At the moment about 1200 pupils attend our school and about 100 teachers work with them every day which makes it one of the biggest schools in the city. At the end of their school career the pupils take their A-levels (university entrance diploma).

Musically gifted pupils have the opportunity to attend special classes in the afternoon in order to develop their talent. There are also various exchange possibilities to cities in Britain, Spain, France, and South America for linguistically interested pupils. Pupils who are interested in science have the opportunity to take part in several challenges in Maths or Chemistry.

After the lessons (which usually end at 13:15) the pupils can take part in various free time activities offered by social education workers. Also special tuition lessons are held by senior students and teachers in the afternoon.

School life also takes place in our school garden, on our large sports ground, in our indoor swimming pool, in the refectory and in the assembly hall where concerts, theatre performances or exhibitions regularly take place.
