German International School Cape Town undergoes impressive R18 million upgrade

The German International School Cape Town is proud to announce an R18 million upgrade to its facilities. The expansion will allow the school to open its doors to more non-German-speaking learners who could benefit from the school’s world-class academic offerings.

The upgrade, partly funded by the German government, encompasses a striking four-storey building consisting of a state-of-the-art two-level library, eight new classrooms and a multifunction room.

The multimedia library includes ample computers and iPads, all with internet connectivity, while all classrooms are equipped with interactive whiteboards and computers with internet access.

“We consistently strive to offer the best international education, and with our new building we can accommodate more learners in the non- German-speaking stream. We welcome all interested learners from the broader Cape Town community,” says Hermann Battenberg, principal of the German International School Cape Town.

The school offers a unique opportunity to matriculate with both the South African Secondary Certificate and German Abitur examination qualification, which allows entry into any South African, German or other European university.

Each year, the German International School Cape Town invites non- German-speaking learners from Grade 5 to apply for a place at the school and to take the entrance examination. These learners do not need any German background!
