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.
Our Photography students have played a major part in Bridgend’s White Ribbon Campaign this week, creating a variety of images to highlight domestic abuse. Students were invited to the opening of this exhibition
at Bridgend Council Offices which will now go on a tour of the County. The Artwork will be on display at
Hartshorn House, Maesteg from Monday 2nd December to Friday 6th December, I would strongly recommend visiting this exhibition to view the work of our very talented Photography students!
“Staff and Sixth form students have been very busy during the month of ‘M’ ovember, as you can see from the photograph attached!
We have already raised over £1000 for male forms of cancer.
Today we have held a quiz – guess the teacher’s moustache! And held raffles to raise as much money as possible towards this very important cause.”
Year 7 students in Maesteg have been busy preparing shoeboxes packed with gifts for children from around the world who may go without this Christmas.
They have brought in small toys, toiletries, stocking fillers and festive treats, packed beautifully in wrapping paper - a perfect gesture for those less fortunate.
Head of Year, Mrs Hopkins-Sparkes is incredibly proud of them, "This reflects the ethos here at Maesteg School; generous, thoughtful and considerate. I am exceptionally proud
of their wonderful acts of kindness"
Governing Body of Maesteg School - Annual Report to Parents
I attach for your information, a copy of the Summary Governors Annual Report to Parents for the 2012-2013 academic year, together with a Full Governors Annual Report to Parents.
Under the School Standards and Organisation (Wales) Act 2013 (the Act), the governing body is no longer required to hold a meeting for the purpose of discussing the attached report. However, under this legislation, if a governing body receives a petition from parents of registered pupils at the school requesting that a meeting takes place this request must be acceded to if the following conditions are met:
- The petition contains the signatures of (either) ten percent of the parents of registered pupils or thirty of the parents of registered pupils at the school (whichever is the lower number).
- The meeting must be for the purpose of discussing a matter relating to the school.
- Should meetings be requested/held there will be no more than three meetings held during the school year in which the (initial) petition is received.
- There are enough school days remaining in the school year for the meeting to be held in line with the requirements of the Act.
Should a meeting be held it will be open to all parents of registered pupils at the school, the Headteacher and other persons invited by the Governing Body.
