We are an IEB school

We are committed to providing learners with an excellent education. That is why our approach to teaching the national CAPS curriculum is based on project-based learning and self-discovery. As an IEB school, this approach allows our high school learners to explore the learning material beyond just the textbook through research, experiments and assignments, while still preparing them for their exams in Grade 12. Regular assessments and tests still take place, but it’s important to us that learners can use their intellectual abilities to make the material real to them in some way. This teaches them to take initiative and make connections between pieces of knowledge – which further develops critical-thinking and problem-solving skills.



What happens in Grade 8 to Grade 12

Our senior phase starts by helping Grade 8 learners grow accustomed to the greater workload of higher intensity in high school. We limit the number of learners in each class to ensure that they get individual attention in exactly the places they need. Our learners also receive guidance when choosing their elective subjects at the end of Grade 9. From Grade 10, we prepare learners for the IEB exams in Grade 12. However, we focus on more than just assessments, by applying the work to real-life situations. This helps learners to understand the work much better, and further empowers them with knowledge and skills to become the leaders of the future.

Teaching takes place in English, and learners have Afrikaans and isiZulu as additional language options.



As part of the Curro school group, our learners enjoy preference when applying to any school in the group. This includes Curro Online, a fully-online school where learners who don’t live near a school in the group can still get the excellent Curro education from home.


A wider subject choice

Our learners can choose elective subjects beyond what is offered at our school. These subjects take place digitally and are presented live by Curro teachers. Lessons are scheduled during the school day, with supervised self-directed sessions after hours. These subjects can be seen as an extension of the excellent Curro education your child gets with us, and they still write the IEB exam at the end of Grade 12.
