Haeschengruppe: Year 1. Similar to the Kueken but we introduce German letters and start reading and writing.

Kindergruppe : Year 2-Year 7. In this group we undertake projects, read a little, write a little and aim to build on the kids German, increase their confidence in speaking, reading and writing whilst having fun.

Jugendgruppe: From Y7. This group is for young people who are studying towards their GCSE's. We will not teach the GCSE Curriculum but students will have lots of opportunity to speak and engage within the German Community..

DSS Derby was founded by Katja,

a mother of 4, who would like to build a Community of German speaking families, tutors and helpers for our children to enjoy being part of.

We are not a school. I see us more as a Verein and Community with the purpose of enriching our childrens lifes and building on their existing German knowledge and heritage.


We strive to create a fun and stimulating environment where children learn and improve their German by using it actively and purposefully in listening, speaking, reading and writing. We try our best to accomodate everyone but we are not a school and haven't got the same resources available to us. 

If we have spaces available i will suggest for you to come for  a taster so you can see what we have to offer as a Community.


 Each group is run by a tutor (and a helper if there are more than 5 students).

All tutors/helpers are native speakers buyt not necessarily fullly trained teachers. Fees are payable for each term at the beginning of term and work out as £15 per per child per session.


We want to create a German Community for the Derby/Nottingham area where we meet, undertake projects, play games, learn and celebrate German traditions together.
