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.

We want them to be able to make informed decisions about their future and from an early onset we set about helping our students to achieve the school’s aims of allowing imagination, aspirations and achievement to be realised.

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 the correct decisions for their future.

There are endless opportunities to discuss career options with visiting businessmen and women, by visiting various workplaces and through work experience itself. By the Sixth Form, when identifying potential subjects to study at university becomes a priority, a dedicated Sixth Form 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!
