Senior phase: Grade 8 and Grade 9
At Meridian Pinehurst, learners in the senior phase are guided to adjust to a greater workload of higher intensity. Our learners are encouraged to develop innovative and critical thinking, while a problem-solving approach is taken to subjects such as Mathematics. Our affordable, enhanced curriculum places a great emphasis on individual thinking and understanding, while 21st-century learning is implemented in subjects such as Technology.
The language of teaching and learning is English with Afrikaans and isiXhosa offered as first additional language options. Learners use tablets in the classrooms rather than textbooks for specific subjects. This further helps to prepare learners for the university and workplace of the future.
Our learners receive guidance when choosing their elective subjects towards the end of Grade 9.
FET phase: Grade 10 to Grade 12
The FET phase prepares learners for the NSC examinations written at the end of Grade 12. 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 Geography and Physical Sciences.
