Curro Nelspruit has a high school in Sonheuwel (The Rest Nature Estate) that provides the excellent Curro education to learners from Grade 8 to Grade 12. Our class sizes are limited to no more than 25, so that your child can get personal attention, and we have a wide variety of specialised subjects, such as Robotics and Siswati. Teaching takes place in Afrikaans and English, we are an IEB school, and we also have a school transport option.

By providing learners with a high-quality education that involves academics, physical health and emotional well-being, we help them become the leaders of the future that can take charge of their own lives and make a difference in society.

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 high school learners to explore the learning material beyond just the textbook through research, experiments and assignments, while preparing them for the IEB exams in Grade 12. 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.

 

What happens in Grade 8 to Grade 12

Our senior phase starts by helping Grade 8 learners grow accustomed to the greater workload of higher intensity in high school. We limit the number of learners in each class to ensure that they get individual attention in exactly the places they need. Our learners also receive guidance when choosing their elective subjects at the end of Grade 9. From Grade 10, we prepare learners for the IEB exams in Grade 12. However, we focus on more than just assessments, by applying the work to real-life situations. This helps learners to understand the work much better, and further empowers them with knowledge and skills to become the leaders of the future.

Teaching takes place in English and Afrikaans, and learners will have either Afrikaans or English as additional language options.

 

As part of the Curro school group, learners enjoy preference when applying to us from any school in the group. Such a nearby school with a preschool phase is Curro Academy Mbombela, as well as Meridian Karino which has a primary school phase.

 

A wider subject choice

Our learners can choose elective subjects beyond what is offered at our school. These subjects take place digitally and are presented live by Curro teachers. Lessons are scheduled during the school day, with supervised self-directed sessions after hours. These subjects can be seen as an extension of the excellent Curro education your child gets with us, and they still write the IEB exam at the end of Grade 12.

More than just the classroom

We offer several supportive programmes at no additional cost. These are aimed at providing learners with real-life skills and confidence, as well as providing additional academic support. These programmes include:

  • Business and entrepreneurship programme
  • Full-time school counsellor who cares for the emotional wellbeing of our learners
  • Subject choice assessments
  • Various olympiads

 

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 cheerleading and soccer, are tailored to the interests of learners in our area. Your child is sure to find something that will pique their interest.
