Curro Century City enrolment soars
Enrolment at the Century City campus of listed private school company, Curro Holdings, has soared to 723.
Student numbers are 26% higher than last year and more than three times the maiden enrolment of the school which started in January 2013 with 234 learners.
Executive head Sean Friedenthal says they are happy with the enrolment numbers and they expected their current capacity of 790 to be reached shortly.
The school, which originally catered for grade RR through to Grade 5, extended to SPS’s (age 3-4) and Grade 6 in 2014 and this year added Grade 7 – the first year of the Senior Phase in education - to the equation.
“Our base is full and the higher grades are filling up quickly,” he says.
He said the school now employs 43 teachers and has a total staff complement of 73.
“And demand for our aftercare which runs until 6pm weekdays is still strong and currently serving 385 children a day!”
Looking forward, Friedenthal says discussions with the developer, Rabie Property Group, to acquire additional land to enable them to increase enrolment to 1350, including a high school component, in the short term were well advanced.
