Sixth Form Provision
A major consultation over the future of post-16 education in Bridgend County Borough is underway. Bridgend County Borough Council are reviewing whether the current provision should be altered to ensure that young learners have the best possible opportunities to excel, and is inviting the public to have their say.
Here at Maesteg School, we have a thriving and successful Sixth Form, which offers a variety of opportunities for pupils to excel and succeed at many levels. These proposals could potentially jeopardise the future of 6th form provision in Maesteg and will force our pupils to travel outside of Maesteg in order to access any post 16 provision. For information about the consultation, please read our latest letter here.
Families Around Maesteg School
Our next F.A.M.S. meeting is due to take place on Wednesday 22nd January at 6.00pm in the School Hall. One of our major pieces of work with parents over the next year or so will be to develop the school in line with the qualities of a ‘parent-friendly’ school. We have already worked with an organisation called Parentkind to develop this and you may wish to look at their website to see what this work involves: parentkind.org.uk
Mr Chris Brooks, who has a particular responsibility for supporting the ‘Aspirations’ of our young people, will also be giving a presentation on the school’s development of an Alumni, something for which we absolutely need your help. As always, the meeting will end with the opportunity for some open questions directed to the head and the development of an agenda for our next meeting.
