National Citizen Service
National Citizen Service (NCS) is a youth programme that runs across England and Northern Ireland. It exists to engage, unite and empower young people, building confidence, no matter where you’re from or what your background is. The programme is managed and supported by NCS Trust.
St Peter’s School are partners with the National Citizen Service (NCS) and encourage our Year 11 students to take up this incredible opportunity! The NCS programme is a heavily Government subsidised programme for young people – the cost to parents/carers is a maximum of £50 (bursary scheme applications available via NCS to reduce this cost further) and the programme offers a range of activities in three phases and can be a three or four week programme that run from Mondays to Fridays – never over a weekend:
- Phase 1 – Be Epic – Residential - Activities that include zip wires, high ropes, archery, fencing, meet new people and personal challenge.
- Phase 2 – Live Life – Residential - Working on independence and life skills, cooking, meeting charities and organisations and completing community challenges.
- Phase 3 – Do Good - Manage a community project – plan, manage and deliver a project of your choice! This a true leadership opportunity – no matter your ability or previous achievements!
The programme is open to Year 11 students during the summer at the end of their Year 11 school year. The programme can be completed up the age of 18 years – or up to age of 25 for students with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).
St Peter’s School strongly encourage our students to take up this opportunity, as it helps to develop confidence, social skills, communication, leadership and inspire young people for the future! It can also count towards some areas of Gold Duke of Edinburgh.
