New building and expanded primary school offering for local learners at Curro Academy The Blyde

Curro Academy The Blyde, situated in The Blyde Lifestyle Estate in Pretoria East, has recently moved to a brand new building. The school, managed by the JSE-listed independent school operator Curro Holdings, opened its doors in January 2020 to provide high-quality early childhood development education for children from the age of 3 years to Grade 3, with higher grades phasing in annually. 


Since its inception, the school temporarily operated from the Curro Castle The Blyde nursery school building while the primary school building was being constructed. “Our school was bursting at its seams and our learners and staff are so excited about our brand new building,” says Dr Hennie Rheeders, Executive Head at Curro Academy The Blyde. 


The school is also set to extend its offering into a full primary school from January 2022. “There is a great need for intermediate phase education in our community and we are looking forward to welcoming our new learners in our fully-fledged primary school that will accommodate learners up to Grade 7,” concludes Dr Rheeders.


Activities including soccer, netball, athletics, hockey, tennis, cross country running, and cricket will be offered to the school’s intermediate phase learners. Other exciting extramural activities will include SoccerStarz, music, swimming, and cycling as well as cultural activities such as choir and Eisteddfod.
