We want to offer many children the opportunity to access our educational services and have decided to use the model of income-based tuition fees.
Those fees are based on the gross annual income as well as any wage replacement benefits of the legal guardians from two years before start of school (e.g. for the school year 21/22 we look at the income tax statement of 2019). It is not possible to set off income against “negative income” (such as loss on rental income or leases).
Therefore, we kindly ask to submit your income statement from the calendar year before last each year - unless you wish to voluntarily pay the highest tuition fee of 1.100 €. The Phorms tuition fee is an annual contribution divided into twelve monthly payments. The first payment is due at the beginning of the school year on August 1th.
Note for new contracts from school year 2022/23: Because of expected cost increases for the school year 2022/23, we must assume a moderate adjustment of the tuition fees. We would like to inform you that you will receive the final monthly tuition fee with an offer of a school contract.
The income-based tuition fees do not include extra charges for food, school materials and field trips as well as early morning or afterschool care, school bus or holiday camps which need to be booked separately.

As soon as two siblings visit our school, we grant a 20% discount for the second child. The third child will receive a 40% discount, the fourth child and any further siblings receive 60% discount. The minimum tuition fee after siblings discount is €250/month.
Tuition fees, lunch money, school bus and early or afternoon childcare are payable in 12 monthly payments.
All fees due will be debited directly from a bank account. Payments are due in advance and will be debited on the first workday of the month.
The bill will be sent out by e-mail.
30% of school fees for Primary Schools and Secondary Schools are tax deductible as extraordinary expenses. This does not include accommodation, day care or food charges for the child. Since 2008, a maximum amount of 5,000 Euros has been stipulated. This means that parents may not deduct more than 5,000 Euros per child (30% of 16,667 Euros) from their tax liability for school fees paid (§ 10 Paragraph 1 Clause 9 of German Income Tax Act, Special Expenses). Day Care costs (and parent contributions to Nursery and Pre-School) may also be deductible. The child must live in the household and be under 14 years of age. Two thirds of the child care expenses up to a maximum amount of 4.000 Euros per child may be deducted as operating costs when determining the gross family income.
Phorms Education cannot accept any liability for the accuracy of the above information. Parents should discuss all matters directly with their tax consultant.
