Curro Academy Mbombela High School


Curro Academy Mbombela has a high school in Mbombela that provides high-quality education for learners from Grade 8 to Grade 9, with higher grades phasing in annually. Our dedicated teachers and well-rounded approach prepare learners for the National Senior Certificate (NSC) examinations at the end of Grade 12. Our small class sizes and enhanced curriculum empower learners with 21st-century skills and knowledge to give them a head start in life. We aim to provide the most affordable school fees possible without compromising our academic standards.


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 affordable school fees, our enhanced curriculum approach places great emphasis on problem solving and individual thinking. Teaching in our small class sizes takes place in English, and we implement 21st-century skills in subjects such as such as Computer Literacy and Technology.

As a Curro Academy school, our learners also receive guidance when choosing their elective subjects at the end of Grade 9 – and they may choose to use tablets in class from this phase onwards.


What about Grade 10 to Grade 12?

Once phased in, this phase will prepare learners for the NSC examinations at the end of Grade 12. However, we emphasise 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. Keep an eye on our website for information on the subjects we plan to offer in this phase.


We use tablets in class

As a Curro Academy school, our high school learners may choose to use tablets in class rather than textbooks, or as a tool to enhance the learning experience. By using technology on a daily basis, learners are further prepared for the workplace of the future.

A wider subject choice

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.


Curro Academy Mbombela activities

In addition to our enhanced curriculum, we believe that participation in activities plays an important role in promoting health, discipline, self-confidence and community. Therefore, as a Curro Academy school, our sports and cultural activities are designed to help learners discover their inherent talents, or to broaden their exposure beyond their current reference framework, which is important for the development of 21st-century skills.

Therefore, we offer a variety of sports and cultural activities – which are included in our affordable school fees – as well as extramural activities such as ballet, which is offered at an additional cost. Some of our activities are aimed at boosting learners’ cognitive abilities, while others provide pure enjoyment.
