Curro Select Schools provide learners from Grade R to Grade 12 across southern Africa with an enhanced curriculum, with many also having a preschool phase for children from 3 months to 5 years (depending on the campus). Most Curro Select Schools prepare learners for the IEB examinations at the end of Grade 12, with two preparing them for the Cambridge AS and A level examinations. With small class sizes, highly modern classrooms, superior facilities and a wide variety of sports and cultural activities, these schools have a rich heritage and sound academic results, made possible by their competitive school fees.
These schools have been acquired by Curro Holdings and are managed in collaboration between the school management team and the Curro group. Though they benefit from the support and guidance offered by Curro Holdings, they retain their original well-established identities and ethos.
Learners develop 21st-century skills
These schools’ small class sizes and competitive school fees make it possible to implement international-standard facilities and teaching methods. Subjects such as Information Technology and Physical Sciences are often enhanced by incorporating the use of virtual reality (VR), Robotics, and nanotechnology. Along with their approach to project-based learning and independent thinking, this helps learners develop 21st-century skills that will help them excel in life. At many of these schools, learners even use tablets in class rather than textbooks, or as a tool to enhance learning.
Many schools use tablets in class
Learners at Curro Select Schools benefit from future-focused learning by using tablets in class rather than textbooks – or as an additional tool to support research and collaboration among learners. These tablets generally do not form part of our school fees, although that may depend on the school, and some schools allow learners to choose whether they want to use tablets or physical textbooks.
What is the IEB?
Contrary to popular belief, the IEB is not a separate curriculum, but rather a set of external examinations of international standard to be written at the end of Grade 12. These examination papers are set by the Independent Examinations Board (IEB) and the resulting qualification is accepted at major universities around the world. The enhanced curriculum and small class sizes prepare learners for the unique questioning method in these examinations. This method requires great skill in applying learned material in a creative manner – another example of the way in which we provide learners with 21st-century skills. The IEB examinations are accredited by Umalusi, the QCTO, the Foundational Learning Competence and the ETDP SETA.
