Maplewell Hall Post 16 is based at Thorpe Hill in Loughborough.
We have high expectations of all our students and value and celebrate all their academic achievements. We aim to widen our student’s employability skills and employment opportunities by teaching a full and comprehensive curriculum. This includes P4A skills, like “managing personal finance” and “staying safe”. The Employability lessons teach interview skills, alongside conduct at work, thus helping to secure a work placement or future employment.
At our most recent inspection, Ofsted recognised the high expectations teachers have of our students. We were praised for our broad and balanced curriculum, including a wider curriculum with the Duke of Edinburgh Bronze and Silver awards. The travel training programme offers the provision an engagement in extra-curricular activities and is a real strength of the school, giving students a wide range of opportunities to develop their skills and talents outside of the classroom.

Our programme is at the heart of employment and independence and students are encouraged to commit to engage in a variety of activities that challenge them to achieve their goals.
