Post 16 caters for student’s increasing independence and transition from school to higher education.
Welcome to Post 16!
In Post 16 at Rigby Hall we aim to get our students ready for life beyond school. Our curriculum covers a wide range of skills from becoming part of a community to employment skills and from developing our health and well-being to learning valuable everyday life skills. Along every step of the way, we encourage our students to become as independent as possible, and considerate young people.
Already this year the students have set up and run their own business enterprises. These have been planned, resourced and run by the students and they have benefitted both the school children and a local charity chosen by the students supporting the homeless community. The students show great pride in their work and as a group have decided to continue running one of the enterprises for the rest of the year as a result of their success.
Our current life skills work is linked to the Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award, the students have all been involved in planning the news skills they want to learn, these are all underpinned by core personal qualities such as resilience, being able to adapt and having good communication skills.
As a team, we feel our young people have a huge amount to offer. As staff, our aim is to support them to follow their aspirations and encourage them to believe in themselves!
