Academics

Curro practises a system of invitational education in which learners are regarded as able, valuable and responsible. Curro’s Christian ethos is supported by values that encourage learners to explore and express their individuality within acceptable limits and to accept responsibility for their actions.
Curro encourages learners to follow their hearts and to develop into the best people they can be. The curriculum covers problem-solving, creative thinking and the development of skills and values. Learners now start preparing for the Independent Examinations Board (IEB) matric examination.

The CAPS curriculum is implemented here, with the Mathematics curriculum allowing for a more focused and problem-solving approach. The same literacy principles as in previous phases are included in the home language teaching, with a bigger emphasis on Language Arts. In the Science and Technology curriculum we focus not only on 21st century skills, but also in the most current content. This will include content on satellites, plastics technology, nanotechnology as well as a study of the Da Vinci interventions. This is all done with CAPS and the IEB in mind.
