High school

High school phase: Grade 8 and Grade 9 
Our ethos is governed by Christian values, where learners are encouraged to explore and express their individuality within acceptable boundaries, and ultimately take responsibility for their actions. 

We guide them to follow their hearts and minds to develop into the best people they can be. 

Our dynamic curriculum covers problem-solving, critical thinking and the development of skills and values. Both individual and group work are evaluated. 

Curro Westbrook produces a community of teenagers who know how to think innovatively, express their ideas and take charge of their own lives.We give your child the advantage of 21st Century learning, balanced academics, sport and experienced teachers! 

Learners are prepared for the matriculation examinations set by the Independent Examinations Board (IEB). 

Curriculum 
In this phase the CAPS curriculum is implemented, with Mathematics 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. In the Science and Technology curriculum we focus not only on 21st century technology, but also on nanotechnology and a study of the Da Vinci inventions. This is all done with CAPS and the IEB in mind.
