At Eagle House, we follow the Revised National Curriculum.

In Grade 7 and 8 and 9, there will be nine learning areas. The subjects include English First Language, Afrikaans second Language, Mathematics, Life Orientation, Natural Science, History and Social Science, Technology, Economic Management Science and Arts and Culture. ICT is taught throughout the school and is integrated into all subjects. All students are encouraged to become computer literate.

We use a variety of internal procedures including standardised tests to monitor progress during the year.  Formal assessments are also used at the end of every term. Results are communicated to parents through reports and at Parents’ Evenings.

The National Senior Certificate (NSC) examinations commonly referred to as “matric” has become an annual event of major public significance. It not only signifies the culmination of twelve years of formal schooling but the NSC examinations is a barometer of the health of the education system.

The first national examination, under the newly elected democratic government was administered in November 1996, following a highly decentralized approach.

21st Century Learning

We have developed a framework to ensure that 21st-century learning is happening in both the context and content of learning. Our students are given a strong foundation in the core subject areas of English, math, science, social studies, history, world languages and the arts. 

We understand that children learn best when they are engaged with the subject matter and can make real-world connections. Starting in the lower school the Eagle House curriculum takes an interdisciplinary approach with a focus on experiential learning. Students connect with subjects through concrete experiences like role-playing, simulations, lab work, or exploration outside the classroom. 

They are encouraged to approach issues analytically, think globally and understand subject matter from different points of view.
