School Education

The school education of the Thomaner from grades 5 to 12 is the responsibility of the St. Thomas School Leipzig, a secondary school of the City of Leipzig, located across the street. The choir members learn with other students in mixed classes and graduate with an emphasis on music and performance. The youngest boys enter the choir at the beginning of the 4th class. They are taught in special classes at the Anna-Magdalena-Bach-Schule, a primary school of the City of Leipzig, or at the forum thomanum primary school (private school) directly on the campus.
