National Citizen Service

National Citizen service (NCS) is a part-residential youth programme that is available to all young people aged 16-17. The Government invests at least £1300 for each young person to take part and NSC asks for a £50 contribution from Parents/Carers to secure a place. To date over 300.000 teenagers have participated with another 100.000 due to take part this year. 
NCS is a three to four week programme that runs outside term time. Young people work in teams, take part in outdoor adventure activities and contribute the their community. The  programme offers participants the opportunity to boost their CV and increase their confidence. Participants develop a social action project to deal with a local issue that they are passionate about and spend 30 hours putting the project into action in their community.  

We had 15 students and a leader come into School and work in our garden areas for 2 days, weeding, digging and clearing up the area they did a fabulous job and were all very polite, helpful and hardworking individuals. 

There are some before and after pictures below i'm sure you will agree the area now looks wonderful.
