Curro Academy Sandown
Curro Academy Sandown is an independent school on the edge of Parklands, Cape Town that provides high-quality education for learners from Grade R to Grade 9 with higher grades phasing in annually. Our small class sizes and enhanced curriculum empower learners with 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 National Senior Certificate (NSC) examinations by the time they reach Grade 12.
Our nursery school, Curro Castle Sandown, offers an integrated play-based curriculum to learners from 3 months to 5 years. View their webpage to see how they apply our internally-developed programme to support your child’s early learning and development goals.
What do we offer?
At Curro Academy Sandown, we balance excellent academics with sports- and cultural well-being to ensure that learners develop into well-rounded individuals. We provide a strong educational foundation starting with specialised programmes in Grade R (such as the Bazoo integrated literacy programme) and building to a variety of specialised subjects (such as Robotics) in primary and high school.
Our enhanced curriculum incorporates a project-based learning approach, while our dedicated teachers and recreational activities aim to make learning a fun experience. We also incorporate 21st-century learning by using tablets in the classroom rather than textbooks.
Which activities do we offer?
We believe that participation in sports and cultural activities plays an important role in promoting friendship and self-confidence in addition to physical and social well-being. Many of our activities are designed to help learners learn valuable skills that require more time for development than can be provided during the daily programme.
How do we use technology in the classroom?
Our learners benefit from the best 21st-century learning tools by having access to specialised subjects such as Robotics in all grades. In Grade R, the Duplo Lego programme introduces thinking patterns such as creative thinking and problem solving through fun, innovative play. These thinking patterns form the basis for an understanding of later Robotics studies in primary school and high school.
Learners from intermediate phase onwards benefit from 21st-century learning by using tablets (e-books) rather than textbooks. Using innovative technology allows teachers to provide a wealth of information at the touch of a button and better prepares learners for the workplace of the future. Our modern classrooms for subjects such as Computer Literacy and Technology are fitted with state-of-the-art tools and equipment to ensure that learners learn skills that are current in the workplace.
