Thor-Heyerdahl-Gymnasium offers the 8-year as well as the 9-year educational programme. The Mittelstufe consists of grades 6 to 9 (8 year plan) or grades 7 to 10 (9 year plan). If the G8 plan is chosen, students have already had classes in their second foreign language. In G9, teaching of the second foreign language (French or Latin) begins in the 7th grade. Class trips within Germany are carried out in the 7th or 8th grades. It is compulsory for students to decide between French, Latin or ANT (practical sciences) in the 8th grade (8 year plan) or the 9th grade (9 year plan). In the 9th grade, students complete a work placement. Our motivated school social education worker Mr Nahnsen informs our students about addiction prevention, sensible use of media, and advice. The Peer Mediation AG, led by Mrs Fretwurst, supplements these measures.

UK - German Connection Project
The project will involve students thinking about their favourite books when they were younger and thinking about which books interest them now, then sharing this information with students in the other country.
