NSC results | 95% pass rate – read more


Johannesburg, 22 February 2021: Curro Holdings, the JSE-listed independent education provider, can today proudly congratulate each of its learners on their National Senior Certificate (NSC) results. Despite an immensely challenging 2020, Curro’s Academy, Meridian and Assisted Learning independent schools achieved a pass rate of 95%.

A total of 1 060 learners completed the exams and all qualified for a form of tertiary studies.  

“Not many people are able to state that they faced a global pandemic during their matric year. For this reason, the Class of 2020 can be enormously proud of what they were able to achieve,” says Andries Greyling, Curro Holdings CEO.

Curro Holdings was quick to react to the lockdown and implemented a remote learning strategy across the group. This paid off, with the results of Curro’s Academy and Meridian schools proving better than that of 2019.

“The 2020 results were achieved through a massive group effort. We congratulate not only our matrics for their exceptionally hard work through trying times, but also Curro’s team of dedicated teachers. Our teachers managed to keep the ship steady during stormy weather while sacrificing many hours to execute our remote strategy,” says André Pollard, Executive: Curriculum at Curro Holdings. “Finally, a word of thanks must certainly be extended to every parent for whom matric in 2020 was just as much a challenge,” he concludes.
