You get the excellent Curro education

We are committed to providing learners with an excellent education. That is why our approach to teaching the national CAPS curriculum is based on project-based learning and self-discovery. This approach allows our learners to explore the learning material beyond just the textbook through research, experiments and assignments. Regular assessments and tests still take place, but it’s important to us that learners can use their intellectual abilities to make the material real to them in some way.

Our learners also use tablets or laptops in class to view e-books and for communication via MS Teams. This, in addition to project-based learning, better prepares them with knowledge and skills that will stretch beyond the classroom.



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.

Teaching takes place in English, and learners can choose between Afrikaans and isiXhosa as additional language options. They also have Robotics as a subject up to Grade 7.



How big are the classes

We control the number of learners per class to be no more than 25, so that our teachers have the time and space to give personal attention to each learner, in exactly the places that they need. This is just one of the ways that we create an environment where your child will enjoy what they learn and love coming to school.



More than academics

We believe that a quality education stretches beyond just academics. That is why we have several programmes that expose our learners to new experiences and teach them skills that will benefit them throughout their lives.

These programmes include the following:

  • Educational tours and excursions
  • Character-building and antibullying
  • Real Life 4 Kids
  • STEAMD programme

As part of the Curro school group, learners enjoy preference when applying to us from any school in the group. Such schools with preschool phases relatively nearby include Curro Burgundy, Curro Academy Sandown, Curro Brackenfell, Curro Durbanville, Curro Rosen Castle and Meridian Pinehurst.


Activities your child can enjoy

One part of the excellent Curro education, is that academics are balanced with sports and cultural activities. Participation in activities promote team-awareness, collaboration, and self-confidence. Our focused variety of activities, such as swimming and drama, are tailored to the interests of learners in our area. Your child is sure to find something that will pique their interest.
