NCS in your school

Make your learners unstoppable with NCS!

Places on NCS this summer are now almost full, with thousands of the region's teenagers having signed up to take part.

We believe NCS is something that every year 11 and year 12 student should have the chance to do - so we work with schools across the North East to ensure young people, parents and teachers have the information they need.

What is NCS?

  • 15-17 year olds experience time living away from home with outward bound and university-style residential stays.
  • They step out of their comfort zones, develop new skills for work and life -- and meet incredible new people.
  • Working with their NCS team, they deliver a community project that makes a real difference to the local area.
  • A staggering 99% of schools in the North East work with NCS.

    “National Citizen Service (NCS) enriches our curriculum, contributes to Ofsted judgements, and enhances the careers education available to our students. This is why we believe every student should have the chance to take part in the scheme and benefit from all of the advantages it provides.” - Alex Rayner, Assistant Principal, Lord Lawson of Beamish Academy.
