Curro Bloemfontein is an independent school with a primary school phase in Groenvlei, Bloemfontein. We provide a holistic, well-rounded education to learners from 4 years to Grade 7. With small class sizes, dedicated teachers, an enhanced curriculum and a strong focus on STEAMD and Robotics, we empower learners with 21st-century skills and knowledge to grow into high-performing, self-confident individuals, ready to become the leaders of the future.
Foundation phase: From 4 years 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. Our younger children are cared for as uniquely required by their age to ensure that they are ready to join their older counterparts, when progressing to Grade R.
We then gradually develop learners’ 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 in which they enjoy being. Through our enhanced curriculum, learners are introduced to project-based learning and gain 21st-century skills through subjects such as Robotics (from Grade R), and with Sesotho and Afrikaans as additional language options.
Intermediate phase: Grade 4 to Grade 7
In these grades, learners are led into more abstract thought and independent work. Our small class sizes and dedicated teachers prepare them for high school by teaching them how to apply the 21st-century skills and concepts they have learned. As a Curro School, we also promote creativity and critical thinking by encouraging learners to make their own choices within well-established boundaries. Our enhanced curriculum includes specialised subjects such as Information Technology and Robotics. Learners in this phase may use tablets in class to enhance their learning experience, and they have the choice between Afrikaans or Sesotho as an additional language.
We use tablets in class
As a Curro School, learners in the intermediate phase may use tablets in class rather than textbooks or as a tool to enhance learning. By exposing learners to the daily use of technology, they are better prepared for the challenges of tertiary studies, as well as the ever-changing workplace of the future.

Curro Bloemfontein activities
We believe that participation in sports and cultural activities plays an important role in developing a well-rounded learner and promoting friendship, team-awareness and self-confidence. Therefore, our range of activities is designed to help learners discover their inherent talents, or broaden their exposure beyond their current reference framework. While participation in sports and cultural activities is generally included in our school fees, extramural activities are offered by private tutors or coaches, at an additional cost. Some of these activities are aimed at boosting learners’ cognitive abilities while others provide pure enjoyment.
