Key Stage 4 News

NATIONAL CITIZEN SERVICE (NCS)

NCS came into school on Monday and delivered an energising presentation aimed at encouraging the Year 11 students to sign up for the popular 4 week experience which is intended to help build confidence and self belief. Completing NCS will help students to develop their employability skills and is especially useful when completing personal statements for University applications or for applying for an apprenticeship.
