Middle school phase: Grade 8 and Grade 9
At Grantleigh, our learners are guided to adjust to a greater workload of higher intensity in this phase. Our teaching is aimed at developing innovative and critical thinking, while a problem-solving approach is taken to subjects such as Mathematics.
As a Curro Select School, our 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 are taught to maintain a sustainable work ethic so that they can find a healthy balance to reach their academic expectations. Furthermore, learners may choose isiZulu as an optional first additional language, and they 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 IEB 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 one day reach their goals and become self-confident, achieving adults. This approach has proven to be successful, as evident by our excellent matric results.
Some of our specialised subjects include Visual Arts and Engineering Graphics and Design. Learners may also choose Advanced Programme Mathematics as an eighth subject.
