Curro Aurora High School

Academics

Curro Aurora is an independent school in Sundowner, Randburg, that provides high-quality education for learners from Grade 8 to Grade 12. Our dedicated teachers and well-rounded approach prepare learners for the IEB examinations at the end of Grade 12. With small class sizes, dedicated teachers, and an enhanced curriculum, we empower learners with 21st-century skills and knowledge to grow into high-performing, self-confident individuals who are ready to become the leaders of the future.

 

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 Information Technology. As a Curro School, our learners also receive guidance when choosing their elective subjects at the end of Grade 9. Our high school learners can also apply for Curro school scholarships as a reward for excellence.

 

FET phase: Grade 10 to Grade 12

This phase prepares learners for the IEB 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 to think innovatively, express their ideas and take charge of their own lives – all highly-valued 21st-century skills. Furthermore, as a Curro School, 21st-century learning is implemented in subjects such as Information Technology and Advanced Programme Mathematics. Our learners also use tablets in class rather than textbooks for certain subjects.


We use tablets in class
As a Curro 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. Find out which subjects are available, and gain more information about this personalised learning experience.

 

Curro Aurora scholarships

Curro school scholarships

At Curro Aurora, we understand the value of achieving in areas beyond academics, as our approach to education is to ensure that learners are developed as well-rounded individuals. Therefore, we offer four Curro school scholarships in high school as a reward for excellence in academics, sport, culture, and leadership.

Learners currently in Grade 7 may apply for a scholarship for the next academic year, while learners currently in Grades 9 to 11 should apply before the end of the first term of the current academic year. The process, dates, and full criteria are explained in the scholarship information letter. Applicants who are not yet enrolled at our school should submit a school enrolment application as well as the scholarship application form. Current learners at our school need to complete only the scholarship application form.
