UCAS & Careers

Here at The Maynard, we firmly believe that it is our duty to provide an effective careers education to prepare our students for working life and a future beyond the school gates.

Through the provision of a planned and progressive programme of careers from the Upper 3 (Year 7) right through to the Upper Sixth (Year 13), we aim to give our students the best chance of making aspirational decisions for their future.

The careers programme includes opportunities to listen to visiting Careers speakers, apprentices, work experience and advice on decision making. By the Sixth Form, when identifying potential subjects to study at university becomes a priority, a dedicated Tutor Team is there to support the process by arranging visiting speakers, conducting mock interviews and helping with the whole application process. We understand that planning a life beyond school can be a daunting process and we will guide each student through every step of the way!

BizWhizz –
The Ultimate Careers Club!


Given the restrictions we are all currently experiencing, we are unable to welcome visiting speakers to this super inspiring lunchtime club where pupils have been able to meet an array of wonderfully entertaining, successful members of the business community, talking about their job and why it makes them tick.

Pupils are encouraged to come along to the talks that interest them most and prepare to be inspired with an honest and frank insight into each career. Open to all Lower 5 to Upper 6 in the Rosemary Langley Room, S2 & S3, on the last Friday of the month, from 13:15 until 13:55.
