Curro Heritage House
Curro Heritage House is a leading independent school in Morningside, Durban that provides high-quality education to learners from Grade R to Grade 12. Our small class sizes and enhanced curriculum provide learners with the skills and knowledge to grow into self-confident individuals. With specialised subjects, such as Robotics, and dedicated teachers, our well-rounded, caring approach prepares learners for the IEB examination at the end of Grade 12.
Our nursery school, Curro Castle Heritage House, offers an integrated play-based programme to learners from 3 months to 5 years. View their webpage to see how we apply our internally-developed programme to support your child’s early learning and development goals.
What do we offer?
At Curro Heritage House, we balance academic excellence with sports and cultural activities within a supportive, positive environment to ensure that learners develop into well-rounded individuals. We provide a strong educational foundation starting with carefully designed programmes in Grade R (such as the Bazoo integrated literacy programme) and building to a variety of specialised subjects in primary school and high school.
Our dedicated teachers and recreational activities aim to make learning a fun experience. We also incorporate 21st-century learning by using e-learning devices in the classroom for certain subjects, rather than textbooks from Grade 8 onwards. Our learners are prepared for the IEB examination at the end of Grade 12, and we focus on a greater world-readiness rather than merely an exam-driven approach.
Our learners further benefit by having Afrikaans and isiZulu as additional language options.
Which activities do we offer?
We believe that participation in sports and cultural activities plays an important role in promoting friendship, team-awareness and self-confidence in addition to physical and social well-being. Therefore, we offer a variety of sports and cultural activities, including Curro Create programmes, aimed at helping learners develop interests and talents that might otherwise have been undiscovered.
These activities also introduce learners to valuable experiences and real-life skills that few other platforms could.
How do we use technology in the classroom?
Our school’s modern classrooms are fitted with the latest learning tools aimed at providing our learners with an enhanced learning experience. In Grade R, the Duplo Lego programme introduces thinking patterns such as creative thinking and problem solving through fun, innovative play. These thinking patterns form the basis for an understanding of later Robotics studies.
We are Robotics inclusive
Our learners further benefit from 21st-century learning by gaining skills relevant to the workplace of the future in subjects such as Robotics and Computer Science, and by using e-learning devices rather than textbooks for certain subjects. Using innovative technology allows teachers to provide a wealth of information at the touch of a button and better prepares learners for the workplace of the future.
