Curro Academy Mamelodi High School
Curro Academy Mamelodi is an independent school in Mamelodi, Pretoria, 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 to grow into high-performing, self-confident individuals and to reach their personal, educational and eventual-workplace goals. 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 approach places great emphasis on problem-solving and individual thinking. Teaching in our small class sizes takes place in English, and learners gain 21st-century skills in subjects such as Technology and Computer Literacy. As a Curro Academy school, 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 for the NSC examinations written at the end of Grade 12. However, as part of our commitment to affordable school fees, we emphasise 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 – all highly-valued 21st-century skills. Learners at our Curro Academy school further benefit from having Afrikaans as an additional language option, and 21st-century learning is implemented in subjects such as Geography and Physical sciences. Our learners also use tablets in class rather than textbooks for certain subjects.
We use tablets in class
As a Curro Academy school, our high school learners may use tablets in class rather than textbooks. By exposing learners in our small class sizes to the daily use of technology, they are better prepared for the challenges of tertiary studies as well as the ever-changing workplace of the future.

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 Mamelodi activities
We believe that participation in activities plays an important role in promoting health, discipline, self-confidence and community. Therefore, our focused activities, including Curro Tennis and Cycle2Ride MTB programmes, 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 the school fees, that include character-building programmes, career guidance and entrepreneurship skills.
We are one of the schools that offer Curro Tennis, which is a specialised tennis offering aimed at providing superior training to athletes. Learners benefit from well-experienced coaches, regular training and workshops, and even tournaments against international teams.

Curro Alumni activities
Curro Alumni aims to reconnect former matriculants with each other and keep them updated on developments within the Curro family. By treasuring our past, we can build our future together. We hope to build a meaningful and personal connection with our members by sharing their success stories and staying updated on their lives through social media.
Alumni members enjoy several benefits, including exclusive offers for their children at selected schools. View Curro Alumni’s website for more information.
Curro Academy Mamelodi community outreach
We believe that outreach programmes are important not only to benefit the community, but also to develop appreciation and empathy in our learners. Therefore, we host various outreach programmes during the year and learners are actively involved in all areas of the project.
