Senior phase: Grade 8 and Grade 9
At Curro Academy Savanna City, 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 language development, and 21st-century learning is implemented in subjects such as Computer Literacy and Technology.
Our learners receive guidance when choosing their elective subjects at the end of Grade 9. We also have additional academic extension sessions in the afternoons to help learners who are struggling. The particular days and times at which sessions take place will be communicated as needed.
FET phase: Grade 10 (higher grades phasing in annually)
This phase prepares learners for the NSC examinations written at the end of Grade 12. However, we emphasise 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. Learners further benefit from having Afrikaans and isiZulu as an additional language options, and 21st-century learning is implemented in subjects such as Physical Sciences and Computer Applications Technology (CAT).
