Curro Westbrook Primary School

Academics

Curro Westbrook is a leading independent Curro School situated in Westbrook Estate, Port Elizabeth that provides high-quality education to learners from Grade R to Grade 7 with a focus on developing 21st-century skills. Our small class sizes and enhanced curriculum (which includes the use of tablets in class) empower learners with skills and knowledge to grow into self-confident individuals.

 

Foundation phase: Grade R to Grade 3

With dedicated teachers and small class sizes, our foundation phase starts by providing the emotional and intellectual foundation required to handle the formal learning that starts in Grade 1. Through our enhanced curriculum we then gradually develop learners’ 21st-century skills and knowledge in basic areas such as language (comprehension, speaking, and listening), mathematics (counting and understanding numbers) and creative problem-solving, in an environment in which they enjoy being. As a Curro School, learners even benefit from being introduced to Robotics through Duplo Lego. Teaching takes place in English, but Afrikaans is offered as an additional language option and isiXhosa as conversational language (supported by the Abuti Syllabus).

 

Intermediate phase: Grade 4 to Grade 7

In these grades, learners at Curro Westbrook are taught to work with the learned material in an abstract manner. The nature of the content gradually builds from being tangible and real, to more intellectual and abstract. Our small class sizes and enhanced curriculum provide learners with an inherent dedication to hard work and excellence, as well as 21st-century skills through specialised subjects such as Robotics and Natural Sciences.

 

We use tablets in class

As a Curro School, learners from this phase onwards may use tablets in class (with Windows 10) rather than textbooks. By exposing learners 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.
