Curro Academy Clayville High School
Curro Academy Clayville is an independent school in Clayville, Olifantsfontein, that provides high-quality education for learners from Grade 8 to Grade 12. Our dedicated teachers and well-rounded approach prepare learners for the National Senior Certificate (NSC) examinations at the end of Grade 12. Our small class sizes and enhanced curriculum empower learners with 21st-century skills and knowledge – our learners may even use tablets in class rather than textbooks. We aim to provide the most affordable school fees possible without compromising our academic standards.
Senior phase: Grade 8 and Grade 9
In these grades, we guide learners to adjust to a greater workload of higher intensity. With dedicated teachers and affordable school fees, our enhanced curriculum approach places great emphasis on problem-solving and individual thinking. Teaching takes place in English, and learners develop 21st-century skills through our approach to subjects such as Natural Sciences and Technology. As part of our commitment to affordable school fees, our learners also receive guidance when choosing their elective subjects at the end of Grade 9.
FET phase: Grade 10 to Grade 12
This phase prepares learners in our small class sizes for the NSC examinations written at the end of Grade 12. However, we emphasise a greater world-readiness rather than a purely examination-driven approach. Our learners are taught 21st-century skills by learning to think innovatively, express their ideas and take charge of their own lives to be valued members of the community. Learners further benefit from our enhanced curriculum by having Afrikaans as an additional language, and 21st-century learning is implemented in subjects such as Physical Sciences and Business Studies.
We use tablets in class
High school learners may choose to use tablets in class rather than textbooks, which further prepares them for the workplace of the future. This allows teachers in our small class sizes to provide learners with additional information or exercises at the touch of a button.

Additional subjects online
High-school learners can now extend their subject choices beyond what is offered at our school. Learners can choose from a wide range of subjects, and classes will take place during the school day in the form of live lessons with teachers. These subjects can be seen as an extension of our enhanced curriculum from which our learners already benefit.

Curro Academy Clayville activities
We believe that participation in sports activities plays an important role in promoting health, discipline, self-confidence and community. Therefore, our focused activities are designed to help learners discover their inherent talents, or to broaden their exposure beyond their current reference framework. Some of our activities are aimed at boosting learners’ cognitive abilities, while others provide pure enjoyment. We also offer value-added programmes as part of our affordable school fees, that include character-building programmes, career guidance and entrepreneurship skills.
