National Citizen Service
On Monday 16 December, we held a special assembly for all Year 11 students about the government-funded, National Citizen Service, which runs across England and Northern Ireland.
The NCS project is a great opportunity which brides the gap between leaving high school and post 16 education or apprenticeship during the summer of 2020. Students will get a four-week experience at an incredibly discounted rate of £50. This provides for:
- an all inclusive week away at an adventure camp somewhere in the UK
- a second all inclusive festival week glamping at the Suffolk Show Ground
- a third week at university working in groups planning a community action project
- a forth week actually carrying it out in the local area
In previous years, participation by our Year 11 students has increased year on year and they have not only won awards for their amazing achievements but they have made lots of new friends along the way. After the presentation this year, a fantastic number of our Year 11 students registered their interest for next summer which is pleasing to see.
