On Wednesday 16th May 20 of our year 11 and Year 12 students who have been accepted onto the NCS programme met up with the team organizing the project they were given their NCS T-shirts and found out a little bit more of what will be on offer to them when the programme begins in just 34 days’ time. The NCS programme which is running during the summer holidays in the West Midlands is open to all young people regardless of ability, income, ethnicity, faith or background and offers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for many of these 15-17 year olds. Students will spend a short time living away from home, and have the opportunity to meet lots of new people and to gain new skills by trying out unfamiliar activities. They will also be taking part in a team project within the local community. It is a really exciting time for our students to be able to get out there and learn new things in a really fun and challenging environment.
So for now we will just have to wait along with our students, but look out for their experiences on the website in September.Back to News
