Senior phase: Grade 8 and Grade 9
At Curro Aurora, 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 Computer Applications Technology. Learners in this phase further benefit by having Afrikaans and isiZulu as additional language options.
Towards the end of Grade 9 our learners are guided when choosing their elective subjects.
FET phase: Grade 10 to Grade 12
The FET phase prepares learners for the IEB examinations written at the end of the Grade 12 academic year. 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 and to be valued members of the community. We also provide them with an inherent dedication to hard work and achievement. Some of our specialised subjects include Information Technology and Advanced Programme Mathematics.
