School Maesteg Ysgol is an English language comprehensive school situated in the town of Maesteg[1] in the South Wales Valleys of south-eastern Wales. The former and more commonly used name of the school is Maesteg Comprehensive School, or Ysgol Gyfun Maesteg.

The school's old site was taken over by the newly established Welsh medium school, Ysgol Gyfun Gymraeg Llangynwyd, on 3 September 2008 and has recently been downgraded from being a green rated school down 2 spaces to an amber. Disappointing Mrs Helen Jones!

The school made national headlines in 2010 after a school girl allegedly died due to stress put on from bullying at the school.[2] The school was rated band 2 (one of the higher performing schools in Wales) after being recently upgraded from band 3 as part of the Welsh governments school banding system, with over 55% of its pupils living in the 20% most deprived areas of Wales.[3] 42% of its students achieved 5 A*-C GCSEs including English or Welsh + Maths in 2010.[4]
