Applying for admission to a general education school

Description

School attendance is compulsory for all children and young people living in Saxony-Anhalt. For children who reach the age of 6 by 30 June, it begins with the following school year and ends after 12 years. The statutory compulsory education of 12 years is fulfilled by attending a vocational school, unless a general education school is still attended.

In Saxony-Anhalt, a distinction is made between general education schools and vocational schools. There are separate regulations for vocational schools.

Schools of general education:

  • Primary schools
  • Secondary schools
  • Comprehensive schools
  • Community schools
  • Grammar school
  • Special schools

Depending on the type of school, different documents are required.

Depending on the type of school, different deadlines must be observed.

In the case of a change of educational course, applications must usually be submitted during the 2nd semester, at the latest 6 weeks before the annual reports are issued.

Please contact the relevant school.

The registration procedure varies.

  • If a school in Saxony-Anhalt is currently attended, the school visited is the first point of contact.
  • As a rule, applications must be submitted to the school attended.
  • If the change takes place from another federal state, the State Education Office of Saxony-Anhalt provides information on school catchment areas. In this case, registration takes place directly at the school.
  • The further procedure then depends individually on the type of school.

Further information can be found in the state portal on the website of the Ministry of Education Saxony-Anhalt. In addition, the State Education Office of Saxony-Anhalt can provide you with information.
