The admission for students (Seiteneinsteigerinnen or Seiteneinsteiger / new entrants to the school) is reliant on the students coming from a highly mobile family. “Seiteneinsteigerinnen or Seiteneinsteiger” are all those students who want to join the school following the decision concerning the students whose application has been accepted to join the school in year 1.
Are we a "highly mobile family"?
A highly mobile family is one that repeatedly (not just temporarily) relocates its main residence for professional reasons to a foreign country at intervals of four years or less. One-off stays abroad and intentions to immigrate or emigrate do not justify a highly mobile classification. Assignment to the group of highly mobile families also presupposes that the parents or legal guardians can substantiate the existence of the requirements of sentence 1 within the scope of the registration and declare in writing that they will have to leave Berlin after a maximum of four years for professional reasons and relocate their main residence abroad.
(§ 5 a Ab s. 6 of the Ordinance on Admission to Schools of Special Educational Character)
Families are regarded as being highly mobile if the whole family is regularly required to move abroad in regular intervals of not more than four years due to a parent`s professional work; singular and short term visits, as well as an intent to immigrate (out of or to Berlin) are not regarded as being highly mobile.
We cannot return any documents to you once they have been submitted to the school.
