Senior phase: Grade 8 and Grade 9
At Windhoek Gymnasium we follow the Namibian National Curriculum with plenty of enrichments built in where possible. In these grades 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.
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 Design and Technology and Computer Studies.
Learners are taught to maintain a sustainable work ethic so that they can find a healthy balance to reach their academic expectations. Furthermore, learners receive guidance when choosing their elective subjects.
FET phase: Grade 10 to Grade 12
At Windhoek Gymnasium the FET phase develops learner knowledge and understanding in the areas of subject content, intellectual enquiry and flexibility and responsiveness to change. 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.
Our school follows the Namibian National Curriculum up to Grade 10 and the Namibian Senior Secondary Certificate AS level in Grades 11 and 12, which is underscribed by Cambridge.
Some of our specialised subjects in this phase include Keyboard and Word Processing, Business Studies and Computer Studies. Learners may also choose to take English, Afrikaans or German as language options.
We have an online school option
High school learners may enrol for our online school option. Rather than attend physical classes, learners can learn from home through pre-recorded online lessons by teachers and online or physical learning materials. Learners can be in touch with their teachers regularly, and opportunities for socialising are weaved into the programme through team work. All examinations will still be written at school, although continuous assessment may occur online.
