On Thursday 30th November, we welcome you to Maesteg School’s Options & Careers Convention. Maesteg School is a highly inclusive school where we pride ourselves on knowing each and every child as an individual. Our House structure and superb pastoral system, ensure that every pupil is valued and that Wellbeing is at the heart of everything we do. Our school is a warm, caring community with excellent relationships between students and staff.  We aim to develop ambitious, optimistic young people who leave our establishment proud of their achievements, proud of their community and proud of themselves. Our 6th form is highly successful with students pursuing Higher education courses, apprenticeships and careers which include medicine, law, journalism, computing and engineering. Those students who aspire to Oxbridge are supported through the rigorous selection process via a bespoke support programme to ensure that they are thoroughly prepared for the challenges ahead. We expect our students to work hard at school and at home. We want them to acquire a love of learning, deep knowledge and skills that will equip them to survive and succeed in ‘life after school.’

Our Options & Careers Convention gives you the opportunity to attend presentations offering guidance on the KS4 and KS5 options.  You can also visit subject area stands and speak to Careers Advisors about how your choices may lead to specific jobs in the future. You will also receive information on the various courses that are on offer. On top of this, there will also be a range of external providers from employers and universities. Maesteg School is a vibrant learning community, but the best way for you to gain a feel for our school is to come along and find out for yourself. We look forward to meeting you!
