THE NATIONAL CITIZENS SERVICE

A YOUTH PROGRAMME LIKE NO OTHER

Designed especially for 16 and 17 year olds, the NCS experience will give you a clearer idea of what you want from your future. As you transition from year 11 into year 12 we’ll help you realise that big, exciting things can come from feeling a little bit overwhelmed…. No, seriously, it’s all good. Remember, No. We. Can.

Show yourself exactly what you’re made of!

On NCS, you’ll mix with a new crowd, and take on fresh challenges together. Before you know it, you’ll be rooting for each other, as you all tackle your own little hurdles.

Along the way, you’ll also get a taste for independence and pick up skills that’ll help you smash your future goals.

And if that’s not enough for you, you’ll also be given a platform to have your voice heard and pursue a passion project.

The NCS experience might last just a few weeks, but the impact? That lasts a LOT longer.

WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE?

HOW MUCH IS IT?

Any programme you choose will cost no more than £50 to take part – we have bursaries available too so this contribution amount can be reduced.

This contribution covers all the accommodation, activities and food!

HOW DO YOU FIND OUT MORE?

Speak to your head of year Mrs Lauren Miller or Mrs Leanne Sherwood. You can also check out the website wearencs.com

NCS will be in school during your year 11 to tell you about YOUR opportunity to NCS in the summer of 2022.

Assembly Date: To be confirmed – watch this space!
