Service Description

Although the type of school type regional school is provided for in the new school law only in the transitional provisions; in the school year 2014/15, however, around 17,800 pupils will still be taught in the expiring regional school classes.

The regional school provides general and vocational education after primary school. It comprises the courses for the acquisition of the first general school leaving certificate and the intermediate school leaving certificate. The different performance possibilities of the pupils can be improved both by teaching in

  • internally differentiating form (joint teaching in a learning group),
  • in learning groups differentiated according to the performance and inclination of the pupils, and
  • in graduation-related class associations.

The regional school offers two graduation options:

  1. First general school leaving certificate at the end of grade 9 and
  2. Intermediate school leaving certificate at the end of grade 10.

With the First General School Leaving Certificate, the 10th year of the regional school can be attended if the achievements in the First General School Leaving Certificate in no more than one subject are worse than satisfactory and no subject or learning area of the compulsory elective area has been graded "poor" or "insufficient". If these conditions are not met, the class conference may decide on the transfer if it considers that the student can successfully participate in grade 10.
The Mittlere Schulabschuss entitles you to the transition to the upper school if the performance in no more than one subject is worse than satisfactory and no subject or learning area of the compulsory elective area has been graded "poor" or "insufficient".


Legal basis
  • Schleswig-Holstein School Act (School Act - SchulG),
  • Landesverordnung über Regionalschule (RegVO).
What else should I know?

Regional schools with more than 240 pupils were converted into community schools at the beginning of the 2014/15 school year.
Regional schools that are just below this level - i.e. with at least 230 pupils - will receive a transitional period extended by one year. They will be converted into community schools on 31 July 2015, provided that the number of pupils has increased to at least 240 by that date. Otherwise, school operations will cease at the latest at the end of the 2019/20 school year, when all students have passed through school.
