Celebrating 86 years of academic excellence at St George's Preparatory24 February 2022
St George's Preparatory School is now part of Curro Holdings as a Curro Select school.
St George’s Preparatory recently joined Curro Holdings as a Curro Select school. Through this partnership it can access a network of academic support while maintaining its heritage, ethos, traditions and uniform.
Its rich history and dedication to academic excellence has brought the school to its proud celebration of 86 years of existence in 2022.
A journey from three years to Grade 7
In the pre-preparatory phase, children are divided into classes by age group, thus sharing a safe space with their peers. These small class sizes allow the dedicated teachers get to know each child personally, and deliver individual attention in a way that each child needs.
Preparatory learners then gradually develop skills and knowledge in basic areas such as language, mathematics and creative problem-solving, in an enjoyable environment. Learners are also introduced to project-based learning and gain skills through subjects such as robotics, computer skills, music, art, drama and isiXhosa as a conversational language.
The journey at St George's Preparatory starts from the age of three in the pre-preparatory phase and goes up to Grade 7.
School activities and excellent facilities
Children in the pre-preparatory phase learn by discovering the world around them. Therefore the school has lots of room for them to run, play, climb and engage their curiosity as they wish. Both phases accommodate working parents by having supervised aftercare facilities.
Specialised facilities, depending on the phase, include fully equipped laboratories, an indoor heated pool, a learning-support department, a multimedia library, the Carol Arts and Media Centre, and more.
A technology-rich space
Learners from Grade 4 onwards work on laptops or 2-in-1 devices to phase out heavy textbooks, which allows teachers to share information or send informal assessments to learners at the press of a button. Through this approach, learners become equipped with 21st-century skills.
Diverse subjects such as music, robotics, computer skills, art and drama are available at St George's Preparatory.
