Curro Select Schools
Curro Select schools provide learners from Grade R to Grade 12 across southern Africa with an enhanced curriculum, with many also having a nursery-school phase for children from 3 months to 5 years. Most Curro Select schools accommodate prepare learners for the IEB examinations at the end of Grade 12, with two preparing them for the Cambridge assessments. With small class sizes, modern classrooms, superior facilities and a variety of sports and cultural activities, these schools have a rich heritage and sound academic results, made possible by our competitive school fees.
Curro Select schools have been acquired by Curro Holdings. Though they benefit from the support and guidance offered by Curro Holdings, they retain their original well-established identities and ethos.
Learners develop 21st-century skills
Our small class sizes and competitive school fees make it possible for us to implement international-standard facilities and teaching methods. Subjects such as Information Technology and Physical Sciences are often enhanced by incorporating the use of virtual reality (VR), robotics, and nanotechnology. Along with our approach to project-based learning and independent thinking, this helps our learners develop 21st-century skills that will help them excel in life. At many of our schools, learners even use tablets in class rather than textbooks, and can easily switch to remote learning when necessary.
We use tablets in class
At Curro Select schools, our learners benefit from future-focused learning by using tablets in class rather than textbooks – or as an additional tool to support research and collaboration among learners. These tablets generally do not form part of our school fees, although that may depend on the school, and some schools allow learners to choose whether they want to use tablets or physical textbooks.
What is IEB?
Contrary to popular belief, IEB is not a separate curriculum, but rather a set of external examinations of international standard to be written at the end of Grade 12. These examination papers are set by the Independent Examinations Board (IEB) and the resulting qualification is accepted at major universities around the world. Our enhanced curriculum and small class sizes prepare learners for the unique questioning method in these examinations. This method requires great skill in applying learned material in a creative manner – another example of the way in which we provide learners with 21st-century skills. The IEB examinations are accredited by Umalusi, the QCTO, the Foundational Learning Competence and the ETDP SETA.
