Senior phase: Grade 8 and Grade 9
At Curro Academy Pretoria, our learners are guided to adjust to a greater workload of higher intensity. Our teaching is aimed at developing innovative and critical thinking, while a problem-solving approach is taken to subjects such as Mathematics. Our affordable, enhanced curriculum places a great emphasis on problem-solving and individual thinking, while 21st-century learning is implemented in subjects such as Technology and Natural Sciences. Learners in this phase further benefit by having Sepedi as an optional first additional language.
Learners from this phase onwards use tablets in the classrooms. This further helps to prepare learners for the ever-changing realities of university and the workplace of the future.
Our learners receive guidance when choosing their elective subjects at the end of Grade 9.
FET phase: Grade 10 to Grade 12
The FET phase prepares learners for the NSC examinations written at the end of Grade 12. However, emphasis is placed on a greater world-readiness rather than a purely examination-driven approach. Our learners are taught to think innovatively, express their ideas and take charge of their own lives to be valued members of the community. We also provide them with an inherent dedication to hard work and achievement. Some of our focused subjects include Geography, Physical Sciences and Engineering Graphics and Design (EGD).
