Select a category

Curro Rivonia has a high school in Sandton 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 and activities. Teaching takes place in English, we are an IEB school, and we also have a school transport service.

We share our campus with a private college that offers NCV programmes from Level 2 to Level 4. When learners choose to progress to the NCV after Grade 9, they can immediately start specialising in their chosen career while remaining in a school-like environment among their peers. Visit this page on our website to discover more about NCV.

You get the excellent Curro education

We are committed to providing learners with a quality 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 for the IEB exams in Grade 12. Teaching takes place in English and Afrikaans, and our specialised elective subjects even include Dramatic Arts and Agricultural Sciences.

Curro’s dedication to a quality education extends to the private college on our campus. NCV programmes provide students with workplace-ready skills and knowledge, which means that your child can immediately employable if they choose not to study further. Furthermore, class sizes are limited so that lecturers can pay personal attention to each student.

As part of the Curro school group, learners enjoy preference when applying to us from any school in the group. Nearby primary schools in the group whose learners can easily progress to us include HeronBridge College, Curro Midrand Sagewood, Curro Midrand Halfway Gardens, Northriding College, Curro DouglasdaleThe King’s School Linbro Park, Curro Waterfall and Curro Aurora – all within a 20-minute drive.

 

A wider subject choice

Our high school 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. This option is not available to students enrolled for NCV courses at the private college on our campus, because their subjects and programme offering is completely different.

How big are our 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.
