Senior phase: Grade 8 and Grade 9 

At Windhoek Gymnasium we follow the Namibian national curriculum (underscribed by Cambridge) with plenty of enrichment opportunities built in where possible. In these grades, our learners are guided to adjust to a greater workload of higher intensity. Our teaching is aimed at developing innovative and critical thinking, while a problem-solving approach is taken in subjects such as Mathematics. 

We are a Curro Select school 

Our enhanced curriculum, focused on providing learners with 21st-century skillsplaces a great emphasis on problem solving and individual thinking, while advanced learning is implemented in subjects such as Design and Technology, and Computer Studies. 

We offer German as a subject 

As a Curro Select school, learners are taught to maintain a sustainable work ethic so that they can find a healthy balance to reach their academic expectations. Furthermore, learners receive guidance when choosing their elective subjects and benefit from having German as a subject option. 

 

FET phase: Grade 10 to Grade 12 

This phase prepares learners for the Namibian Senior Secondary Certificate AS level (underscribed by Cambridge), written at the end of Grade 12. However, we emphasise a greater world-readiness rather than a purely examinations-driven approach. Learners in our small class sizes are taught to think innovatively, to express their ideas and to take charge of their own lives to one day reach their goals and become self-confident, achieving adults. 

We have small class sizes 

Some of our specialised subjects in this phase include Keyboard and Word Processing, Business Studies and Computer Studies. Learners may also choose to take English, Afrikaans or German as additional language options and they benefit from gaining 21st-century skills.
