Established in 1957 as a registered non-profit organisation, the International School of Hamburg is the oldest international school in Germany. Our long history of success is underpinned by decades of continuity of governance and leadership. 

Our organisation's governance structure, our tradition of a strong relationship between the Board of Trustees and the Head of School, as well as regularly gathering feedback from all our stakeholders have ensured unity and resilience in the face of challenges.
