Curro Academy The Blyde has a primary school in Pretoria. We provide the excellent Curro education to learners from Grade R to Grade 7. We limit our class sizes to make sure learners get personal attention, and they benefit from having Robotics as a subject. Our goal is to give our learners a head start in reaching their dreams, whatever these might be.


What happens in Grade R to Grade 7

Our foundation phase starts by helping Grade R learners get ready for the formal learning that starts in Grade 1. In this phase, they learn the basic foundations on which all further learning is based:

  • Language (read, spell, understand, speak, listen)
  • Mathematics (count, understand numbers, addition, subtraction and multiplication)
  • Life skills (physical education, real-life experiences, problem-solving, creativity)

In the intermediate phase, the work becomes less tangible or real, and more abstract. To do this, learners start with project-based learning, which means they do research, assignments, and experiments to explore the material outside just the textbook.


Our activities

We believe that participation in activities plays an important role in promoting health, discipline, self-confidence and community. Therefore, as a Curro Academy school our sports and cultural activities are designed to help learners discover their inherent talents, or to broaden their exposure beyond their current reference framework, which is important for the development of 21st-century skills. Some of our activities are aimed at boosting learners’ cognitive abilities, while others provide pure enjoyment.
