Apply for admission to a general education school


All children and young people living in Saxony-Anhalt are required to attend school. For children who complete their 6th year of life by 30 June, it begins with the following school year and ends after 12 years. The statutory compulsory schooling of 12 years is fulfilled by attending a vocational school, unless a general school is still attended.

In Saxony-Anhalt, a distinction is made between general education schools and vocational schools. Vocational schools have their own regulations.

General education schools:

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

In Saxony-Anhalt, compulsory schooling is compulsory. Find out about the different types of schools and how to register.

The registration procedure is different.

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

Please contact the appropriate school.

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

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

In the event of a change of course, applications must normally be submitted during the 2nd half of the year, at the latest 6 weeks before the issue of the annual certificates.

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