Senior phase: Grade 8 and Grade 9
At Curro Kathu, 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 Studies and Technology.
Learners benefit from choosing English or Afrikaans as a language of instruction and 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.
Some of our specialised subjects include Engineering Graphics and Design (EGD) and Computer Applications Technology (CAT).
