Frequently asked questions

If my child is only going to start at the school in a couple of years' time, do I need to apply now?

Yes, it would be wise to complete application forms and hand them in soon. The forms will go on a waiting list and they will be processed the year before your child is due to start at the school. The acceptance fee only needs to be paid once the forms have been processed.

Do you offer scholarships for the younger grades?

No, scholarships are only offered to Grade 8 learners at Curro high schools.

What is the class size?

Curro schools have a maximum of 25 learners per class. 

Is there a plan for a high school?

Not at the moment. The campus is only large enough for a primary school. BUT Curro Brackenfell learners will be given preferential selection at Meridian Pinehurst or Curro Durbanville for high-school enrolment. (A bus service will also be made available.)

How do we go about buying school uniforms?

There will be a Clothing Concept Lounge at the school with one of every item in every size. You can try on the clothes and then order them online, using your family code to access the My Hub online store. The clothes will be delivered to your home.

Is there a discount for more than one child?

The Curro company policy for 2nd, 3rd and 4th child enrolment for a Curro school is:

-          Second child – no discount

-          3rd and 4th child – 10%

Annual upfront payment of school fees gets a 5% discount.

At what age should my child start school?

The recommended ages are as follows:

Grade R - the year the child turns 6

Grade 1 - the year the child turns 7

Do I still pay an enrolment fee if I am transferring from another CURRO school?

  • From a Curro to a Curro school: no enrolment fee to be paid, not even a top up if the fee differs from school to school.
  • CASTLE or MERIDIAN orACADEMY to CURRO: will have to pay the top-up difference from the Castle,  Meridian school or Academy to a Curro school.
  • CURRO TO MERIDIAN OR ACADEMY: no enrolment fee, no top-up fee.
