In 1944 a pro-gymnasium was founded, which was reorganised into a 7 forms school 5 years later. In the autumn of 1951, when 8th and 9th forms were opened, it became secondary school. A new school building was built in 1967. Since 1992 the school exchanges students’ delegations with the German Gymnasium Hankensbüttel .
