NCS for Years 11 & 12

The NCS programme offers young people, aged 15-17, a once in a lifetime opportunity to do something meaningful with their summer break, as well as a chance to develop skills and take on new challenges that will set them up for adult life. They'll also do something good for their local community, carrying out a project to support a cause they care about. We've seen first hand what an amazing feeling of accomplishment and increased confidence this brings.

Last August, teenagers on NCS donated 200,000 hours of their time to help rebuild their communities after the first lockdown, showing what a difference young people can make when they work together towards a goal.

More information on the NCS summer programme can be found below or on their website;

Over a period of 2 or 3 weeks, they will;

  • Meet new people
  • Try new things
  • Give back to their local community through voluntary action
  • Take on new challenges
  • Develop the skills and confidence to take on their next steps
  • Generate experience for their university application, job/apprenticeship interview or CV and more!

NCS is all about helping teenagers realise their potential by giving them a taste of independence and loading them up with new skills that set them up to achieve their future goals, whatever they may be. And this year, it’s your teen’s turn!

If you want to register your interest in taking part in NCS this summer, then look our for the NCS assembly taking place in school week commencing 24th January 2022 where you can find out all out the programme.

A place on NCS is worth around £1500. However, thanks to government funding for the programme, we only ask for a contribution to cover some basic costs. We want to ensure that everyone can do NCS so there are bursaries available if you need some help to cover the cost.
