The 16 -19 programme builds on the work the pupils have undertaken in the lower school.
An extensive Life Skills programme underpins the Foundation Learning Curriculum and across the waking day facilitates a personalised progression pathway for all learners.
Literacy, Numeracy, ICT and PSD form the core curriculum where students are encouraged to develop more skills for independence.
Every class runs their own Enterprise Company involving the setting up of a business activity and trading every half term in a Market Day. The students learn the skills of working as a team and of economic wellbeing. St Elizabeth’s is part of Hertfordshire Enterprise Network.
Students practise their Personal Learning and Thinking Skills in the weekly café where they have budgeted and produced items for sale.
Our Work Related Learning programme provides opportunities for a variety of activities which the students find interesting, engaging and ensures they are well prepared for experiencing elements of the world of work.
Each year during their time in Post 16 all the students participate in a work experience placement or programme in the local community or within our centre. Some students have the opportunity to take part in a weekly Social Enterprise within our extensive campus.
We work closely with Connexions and Young Person‘s Development Team to provide individual careers, education and guidance. Local College links are set up when this is appropriate such as HRC and Ware.
Students enjoy our full Sport and Leisure programme where we offer opportunities to experience swimming, team games, sports skills, bowling, orienteering, trampolining, health and fitness, dance and table tennis.
