Over the summer a phenomenal number of our departing Year 11 students chose to take part in the National Citizen Service programme. This is a voluntary personal and social development programme for 15-17 year olds.
The initiative is funded by the government and is a two week opportunity to develop their independence and team working skills. There's a residential, they work in teams and they are challenged to develop a can do mindset. It was amazing to see them out and about over the summer taking part in social change activities to make an impact on the local community.
We're incredibly proud that they brought to life our motto: ASPIRE, ENJOY, ACHIEVE.
