Curro Serengeti High School

Academics

Curro Serengeti is an independent Curro School with a high school phase adjacent to the Serengeti Golf and Wildlife Estate in Kempton Park, Ekurhuleni. We provide high-quality education for learners from Grade 8 to Grade 12. Our small class sizes and enhanced curriculum (which includes the use of tablets in class) empower learners with 21st-century skills and knowledge to grow into self-confident individuals and to reach their personal, educational and eventual workplace goals. Our dedicated teachers and well-rounded approach prepare learners for the IEB examinations at the end of Grade 12.

 

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 small class sizes, our enhanced curriculum approach places great emphasis on problem-solving and individual thinking. At our school 21st-century skills are implemented in subjects such as Technology and Robotics. As a Curro School, learners also receive guidance when choosing their elective subjects at the end of Grade 9. Teaching at Curro Serengeti takes place in English, but isiZulu and Afrikaans are offered as additional language options.

 

FET phase: Grade 10 and Grade 12

This phase prepares learners for the IEB examinations written at the end of Grade 12. However, through our enhanced curriculum we emphasise a greater world-readiness rather than a purely examination-driven approach. Learners in our small class sizes are taught to think innovatively, express their ideas and take charge of their own lives to be valued members of the community. Some of our specialised subjects to promote the development of 21st-century skills include Engineering Graphics and Design (EGD), Visual Arts and Computer Applications Technology.

See the full list of subjects we offer on our fact sheet (see Downloads).

 

We use tablets in class

As a Curro School, our high school learners use tablets in class (with Windows 10) rather than textbooks, which further prepares them for the workplace of the future. Through these devices, MS Teams is used as a platform for research and teaching, as well as hybrid teaching and livestreaming when necessary.

 

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 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. Learners remain enrolled at our school and are still prepared for the IEB exam written at the end of Grade 12.
