Curro Bloemfontein High School

Academics

Curro Bloemfontein is an independent high school in Groenvlei, Bloemfontein, 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 focusing on STEAMD, we empower learners with 21st-century skills and knowledge to grow into high-performing, self-confident individuals, 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 all subjects, including Engineering Graphics and Design (EGD).

 

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 examinations-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 all subjects, including specialised subjects such as Information Technology and Engineering Graphics and Design (EGD). Our learners also use e-books in class rather than textbooks for certain subjects.

 

We use e-books in class

As a Curro School, our high-school learners use personal computers or e-books in class rather than textbooks. Printed textbooks may be purchased at an additional cost. 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.

 

Our matric learners write the IEB examinations

The Independent Examinations Board (IEB) is an independent assessment board. Accredited by Umalusi, the board provides assessments in which the question style is deemed more challenging and comprehensive than it is in the National Senior Certificate final assessments. The final examinations set by the IEB are esteemed both locally and abroad, and prepare learners for the intense increase in workload during tertiary studies.

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 Bloemfontein activities

School activities

As a Curro School, we believe that participation in sports and cultural activities plays an important role in developing a well-rounded learner and promoting friendship, team-awareness and self-confidence. Therefore, our range of activities is designed to help learners discover their inherent talents, and broaden their exposure beyond their current reference framework.

 

Extramural activities

External extramural activities are offered by tutors or coaches, and generally take place on the school premises at an additional cost. As a Curro School, some extramural activities are aimed at improving or supporting academic learning or mental and physical development, while others are purely recreational.
