Senior phase: Grade 8 and Grade 9
At Curro Academy Sandown, our Grade 8 and Grade 9 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 to subjects such as Mathematics. Our affordable, enhanced curriculum places a greater emphasis on language development, and 21st-century learning tools are implemented in specialised subjects such as Information Technology and Robotics.
Our learners receive guidance when choosing their elective subjects at the end of Grade 9.
FET phase: Grade 10 to Grade 12
This phase prepares learners for the NSC examinations written at the end of Grade 12 when phased in. However, emphasis is placed on a greater world-readiness rather than a purely examination-driven approach. Our learners are taught to think innovatively, express their ideas and take charge of their own lives to be valued members of the community. We also provide them with an inherent dedication to hard work and achievement. Some of our focused subjects include Information Technology and Physical Sciences.
We use tablets in class
High school learners may choose to use tablets in class rather than textbooks, which further prepares them for the workplace of the future. By using tablets in class, our teachers can provide learners with additional information or exercises at the touch of a button.

Optional eighth subject through Curro Choice
Curro Choice allows high-school learners at all Curro schools to take an additional eighth subject not offered at their school. Lessons take place in the afternoons through live lessons with teachers, and learners remain enrolled at their schools. Applications remain open throughout the year, and as the final exam is written at the school, their subject results will appear on their regular progress report.
