Senior phase: Grade 8 and Grade 9
At Curro Nelspruit, our Grade 8 and Grade 9 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 enhanced curriculum places a greater emphasis on language development, and 21st-century technology is implemented in subjects such as Computer Applications Technology and Engineering Graphics and Design.
Learners benefit from choosing English or Afrikaans as a language of instruction and have the option to take Siswati as additional language.
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 IEB 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.
Learners benefit by choosing English or Afrikaans as a language of instruction as Siswati is offered as additional language. Some of our specialised subjects include Engineering Graphics and Design (EGD) and Computer Applications Technology.
All our high school learners benefit from various subject-specific excursions as well as advanced programmes in Mathematics and English. Learners also have the opportunity to write international benchmark and core skills tests and we have a full academic support programme.
