Pupils go through a two-tier school system in Bremen during their school career. All children start school life when they enter primary school. After four years it is then a matter of deciding which secondary school your child should attend. The options are the Oberschule (upper secondary school) and the Gymnasium (grammar school). Since 2009 there has also been the option in Bremen of continuing the school career after primary school at a Werkschule (factory school). Bremen's broad educational spectrum is rounded off by numerous independent schools.

Find out about the different types of schools in Bremen and get an overview of the general education school system.
