Curro Westbrook High School

Academics

Curro Westbrook is an independent Curro School in Westbrook Estate, Gqeberha (Port Elizabeth), that provides high-quality education for learners from Grade 8 to Grade 10, with higher grades phasing in annually. Our small class sizes and enhanced curriculum (which includes the use of tablets in class) empower learners with 21st-century skills and knowledge to grow into self-confident individuals and to reach their personal, educational and eventual workplace goals. Our dedicated teachers and well-rounded approach prepare learners for the IEB examinations at the end of Grade 12

 

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 small class sizes, our enhanced curriculum approach places great emphasis on problem-solving and individual thinking. Teaching takes place in English, and 21st-century skills are implemented in subjects such as Technology and Natural Sciences. As a Curro School, our learners also receive guidance when choosing their elective subjects at the end of Grade 9.

 

FET phase: Grade 10 (higher grades phasing in)

At Curro Westbrook, this phase prepares learners for the IEB examinations written at the end of Grade 12. However, through our enhanced curriculum, we emphasise a greater world-readiness rather than a purely examinations-driven approach. Learners in our small class sizes are taught to think innovatively, express their ideas and take charge of their own lives, to be valued members of the community. Some of our specialised subjects to promote the development of 21st-century skills include Engineering Graphics and Design (EGD), and Computer Applications Technology (CAT).

 

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.

 

We use tablets in class

As a Curro School, learners use tablets in class (with Windows 10) rather than textbooks, which further prepares them for the workplace of the future.
