Welcome To Maesteg School
Maesteg is an 11-19 co-educational school set in pleasant surroundings with specialist facilities for all subject areas. We have a skilled and dedicated staff enabling our pupils to be taught in a well disciplined and caring environment.
We have high expectations of our pupils and are here to help each child fully realise her/his potential and talents and to develop in each one self-worth, self-discipline, a sense of responsibility and respect for others.
Theatre Trip to the Millennium Centre
On Thursday June 18th 46 pupils travelled to Cardiff to experience a live musical performance. Pupils from every year group, chosen for their own performing arts abilities, watched the hit musical ‘The Bodyguard’ in the Millennium Centre. Each pupil was thrilled to be attending a live performance where they could pick up tips from the professionals to develop their own skills. We were all amazed by the clever staging, along with the lighting effects and even pyrotechnics! Zoe Birkett was the lead female and she was certainly deserving of the part, ensuring each big hit was belted out in true Whitney Houston fashion. It has inspired us to try and tackle some of her songs in choir in the future! All pupils thoroughly enjoyed the show with one pupil exclaiming ‘It was amazing! I will remember this day for the rest of my life!’ It truly was a superb, cultural experience for all involved and one we hope to repeat in the near future. A big thank you to all the pupils who behaved impeccably at all times.
Mrs Rees and Mrs Parry
This year’s annual event once again demonstrated the wide variety of talent and commitment to learning we have at Maesteg School. We were very fortunate to have a previous
pupil, Mrs Sally Brown as a guest speaker who gave a very motivational speech. This was a very special occasion being Ms Carhart’s final Presentation Evening and she was presented with a Coat of Arms from the Mayor of Maesteg, Mr Mike Harper.
Well done to all the pupils who received awards and a thank you to parents, guests and sponsors for their continued support.

Race for Life challenge
A massive thank you to all the pupils staff and parents who took part in the Race for Life challenge in Bridgend on 31st May. A fantastic 36 people competed in the Maesteg School team, everyone finished the 5km race and some in under 30minutes. As a team we raised over £1000 for the charity. The pupils were true role models on the day and did the school, the community and themselves proud.
Well Done Everyone!
