Year 11 Students Summer Holiday NCS Experience

National Citizen Service (NCS) is an exclusive experience for 15–17-year-olds, giving them the opportunity to build skills for work and life on a 5 day away from home residential. 

This is your teen’s chance to get out into the world with their friends, take part in new challenges and meet new people while gaining confidence and independence.

NCS away from home experiences are available across the country. Each experience is 5 days and 4 nights, and includes a variety of activities centred around one of three themes: LIVE IT, BOSS IT, or CHANGE IT. The experiences will boost your young person’s CV or their college or university applications, highlighting to employers and higher education providers the broader range of skills they’ve gained and their willingness to go beyond.

This year places are limited more than ever! 

To find out more or how to sign your teen up, check out the parent pack attached below or visit the NCS website to secure a place today!

The NCS team will be coming into Benjamin Britten Academy of Music and Mathematics to present the away from home opportunities to our students on Friday 9th February. We strongly encourage you to discuss this opportunity with your teen, so they are ready to express their interest and secure a place!
