Most pupils who enter Year 7 of the SESB at Schiller-Gymnasium come from the two SESB-Primary Schools, the Charles-Dickens-School in Charlottenburg and the Quentin-Blake-School in Zehlendorf. All graduates of these schools have the right to continue their education at Schiller-Gymnasium if they have a grammar school recommendation (gymnasiale Empfehlung).
Year 7 is a trial period during which students must meet certain standards, particularly in English, to remain in the SESB.
Pupils from non-SESB primary and secondary schools who have good or very good marks in both English and German are accepted to the SESB programme in Years 7 to 12 on a space-available basis. These pupils must take an English and/or German test to evaluate their suitability for our bilingual programme. This test consists of tasks in reading, listening, writing and communicating and lasts about 45 minutes.
