Curro Academy Sandown Primary School

Academics

Curro Academy Sandown has a primary school phase on the edge of Parklands, Cape Town, that provides high-quality education for learners from Grade R to Grade 7. Our well-rounded approach, small class sizes and enhanced curriculum empower learners with 21st-century skills and knowledge to grow into high-performing, self-confident individuals and to reach their personal, educational and eventual-workplace goals. As a Curro Academy school, we aim to provide the most affordable school fees possible without compromising our academic standards.

 

Foundation phase: Grade R to Grade 3

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 provided in small class sizes, 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 where they enjoy coming to school. At our Curro Academy school, our learners even benefit from being introduced to Robotics through Duplo Lego as part of our affordable school fees.

 

Intermediate phase: Grade 4 to Grade 7

In these grades, learners 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 subjects such as Technology and Robotics. In addition, learners in this phase may choose to use tablets in class rather than textbooks, or as an additional learning tool.

Curro Academy Sandown activities

As a Curro Academy school, we believe that participation in activities plays an important role in promoting health, discipline, self-confidence and community. Therefore, our focused activities are designed to help learners discover their inherent talents, or to broaden their exposure beyond their current reference framework. These activities are generally included in our affordable school fees. Some of our activities are aimed at boosting learners’ cognitive abilities, while others provide pure enjoyment.

 

We offer Curro Create programmes

We offer Curro Arts Superhero (CAS) as part of the Curro Create initiative. CAS is an internal creative mentorship platform with a grading element, where learners are encouraged to discover, develop and display their inherent creative talents.
