Leading Independent School Network Curro Opens Its New High School Campus In Cape Town

Leading Independent School Network Curro Opens Its New High School Campus In Cape Town. Curro is the leading independent school network that provides learners across the country with high quality education that prepares them for the NSC examinations at the end of Grade 12. The school has announced that it has opened it new high school campus situated in Durbanville, Cape Town.

The new campus has implemented a lot of different building styles as the buildings are mostly integrated and can have different uses. “For example, an art classroom opens into an atrium that can be turned into a gallery or exhibitions area, which also shares space with a cafeteria. The cafeteria’s practical and workable kitchen will be used by the hospitality learners, who will be taught in the consumer studies classroom – which also links to the cafeteria,” Curro told Business Tech.

According to Business Tech, the new campus is 9,800 square metre and has a capacity to hold 1000 learners and can be expanded even further. The campus boasts a 360 degree auditorium, dance studio, drama studio and six music rooms. With its reputation of being one of the top private schools in South Africa, Curro has also maintained its investment into other activities besides academics. This shows that the school is determined to develop kids with a mind-set that is well rounded with information and activities. It has invested in sports facilities such as a 400 metre athletics track, six tennis courts, four netball courts and a rugby field.

Curro was founded by Dr Chris van der Merwe in 1998 and in 2011, under his leadership, the company was listed on the JSE. Chris served as CEO until June 2017 when he stepped down, unbundled the Embury Institute for Higher Education, a teachers’ college, from Curro and then listed STADIO, an independent provider of tertiary education on the JSE in October 2017.
