The IEB is an assessment body that is accredited by Umalusi, the South African statutory body responsible for quality assurance for school and adult assessments. The IEB offers external assessment in accordance with legislation and Umalusi directives for schools registered with it at Grade 9 and Grade 12, at which point successful learners are awarded the National Senior Certificate. 

The IEB produces consistent, reliable results in the Grade 12 National Senior Certificate:

  • Average pass rate is between 97% and 98%
  • Pass with entry to degree study, between 78% and 80% 

The IEB is a recognised player in the South African education landscape, committed to building a robust system for all learners in our country. The significance of its independence now is to provide an alternative voice on curriculum and assessment matters, to contribute positively to debates on educational issues and to provide an approach that ensures that independent schools are accommodated in respect of their needs and desires within the South African education framework, for the greater good of our country. The IEB sees itself as a partner in our country’s education system, supporting that which needs to be supported with whatever we have to contribute.

Curro Hermanus has complied with all the requirements and is now registered with the IEB. This will ensure that our students are educated at the highest possible standard when they matriculate.
