Parents Advisory Board


Umay Aktan – Head of Parent Council

I was born and raised up in Darmstadt. After finishing primary school I continued my education at TED Ankara College in Ankara. I studied English Language and Literature at Hacettepe University. For my MA, I moved to London, where I lived for 5 years. I have been in the education sector for a long time. Currently, I am working at the British Embassy School.

Since 2016, we have been a member of the Ernst-Reuter-Schule; my son started at the Kindergarten at age 3 and is now in Year 3. I have been a Parent Representative since 2016 and acted as the Deputy of the Parent Council from 2018 to 2020. With the 2nd term of this year I have been elected the Head. I would like to thank you all for your continued support.
