The Wolbeck high school is a municipal high school in the city of Münster . As part of the school center in the Wolbeck district , it is currently attended by a little under 1000 students. Measured by the number of students, the Wolbeck grammar school is the most visited grammar school in Münster after the Annette-von-Droste-Hülshoff grammar school.


On August 8, 1968, the school was opened under the name "Amts-Gymnasium Wolbeck". At that time the number of students was only 77, the number of teachers only five. However, the school was the only local school to experience a very large demand for school places. This development can be explained by the increasing structural use of the surrounding area at the time. Because of this great demand, the Wolbeck high school was forced to set up emergency accommodation, such as in nearby restaurants. Students at the time reported the prevailing "typical smell of cigarette smoke and stale beer". The building's exterior cladding, which corroded quickly after completion, earned the school the nickname “rust bower”. In 1973 the Hauptschule, Realschule and Gymnasium merged to form the Wolbeck School Center. This still exists today.

Due to the expansion of the transport connections, not only children and young people from Münster, but also from Sendenhorst , Albersloh , Everswinkel and Alverskirchen attend the school. Since then, the Wolbeck high school has recorded one of the largest numbers of school applications from Münster. In 2008 the school celebrated its 40th anniversary with a school festival.

Focus of the lesson

The school teaches the foreign languages English , Latin , French , Russian and Spanish as part of its language profile . The Wolbeck high school has a distinctive natural science and mathematical area and has been a member of the Association of Mathematical and Natural Science Excellence Centers at Schools e. V. ( MINT-EC ). In the " Jugend Forscht " student competition, the school is one of the most successful in Germany thanks to numerous victories.

Another focus is the concept of music classes. Students in grades 5 and 6 can learn to play a musical instrument in these . The music classes are conducted in cooperation with the Wolbeck Music School. If a student decides to take lessons in a music class, he will receive three hours of music lessons per week in the fifth and sixth grades .

Schoolchildren have the opportunity to get involved in working groups outside of the classroom. These cover a large part of subject areas such as sport, religion or language. For some time now, it has also been possible for elementary school students in the so-called Grundschulforscher-AG to take a simplified look at chemistry lessons at high school.

The Wolbeck high school has been a European school in North Rhine-Westphalia since 2018 . The school owes this title primarily to student exchanges with other European countries, the large number of foreign languages ​​on offer and the bilingual teaching from the 5th to the 9th grade. Since the 2017/18 school year, pupils have also been able to acquire the CertiLingua label of excellence , which is intended to demonstrate their linguistic, European and intercultural skills.

The logo of the Wolbeck high school represents the roofs of the school and the sun in a stylized way.
