Meridian Schools

Meridian schools provide learners across the country with high quality education that prepares them for the NSC examinations at the end of Grade 12. These schools accommodate learners from Grade R to Grade 12, with many also having a nursery-school phase for children from 3 months to 5 years. With an enhanced curriculum, focused subjects and targeted sports and cultural activities, these schools aim to maintain affordable school fees without compromising academic standards. 

Meridian schools are managed by Curro as part of a joint venture with Old Mutual and the Public Investment Corporation. 


Learners gain quality education 

As part of Curro, Meridian schools understand the importance of a good education. However, there is an emphasis placed on the well-rounded development of the learner, rather than taking a purely academic approach. By engaging in our approach and activities, learners gain the 21st-century skills and knowledge needed to give them a head start in life and become the leaders of the future. At some of our schools, learners even use tablets in class rather than textbooks, or have the option to use both.


We use tablets in class 

At Meridian 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. This provides learners at Curro with 21st-century skills as these tools are likely to be used in the workplaces they will enter after their studies.  


We maintain affordable school fees 

These schools aim to provide a high quality education while maintaining affordable school fees. By focusing the subjects we offer, Meridian schools can ensure that their classrooms and facilities are well kept and fully equipped. Classrooms for subjects such as Computer Practice or natural Sciences allow learners to interact with the learning material in a manner that helps them develop 21st-century skills.
