The NCS team delivers an informative assembly regarding the NCS scheme to our Year 11 pupils. The National Citizenship Service (NCS) is a government run scheme for 15 – 17 Year olds, designed to build skills and confidence and to improve their life chances. NCS with Inspira attended the school to offer pupils a chance to sign up with NCS to experience the summer of a lifetime!
National Citizen Service is a 4 Phase programme during the summer. On NCS, your daughter will develop the skills that employers increasingly value: confidence, leadership and independence. NCS is a great addition to your teenager’s CV. In fact, almost three quarters (72%) of NCS graduates feel more confident about getting a job after doing NCS. All NCS graduates receive an NCS certificate signed by the Prime Minister, new friends, experiences and memories that will last a lifetime.
BE EPIC – Your daughter will be taken to an outdoor activity centre for 5 days and 4 nights to take part in adrenaline fuelled activities. All food (all dietary requirements catered for including halal or vegetarian), transport, accommodation and activities are provided in this phase. This will be a great chance for your young person to relax and have fun after their exam period and bond with new teammates.
LIVE LIFE – Your daughter will get the chance to live independently in UCLAN University Halls of Residence for a further 5 days and 4 nights and get a taste of University life, taking part in various workshops to enhance their skills, getting ready for work and life. All food, transport, accommodation and activities are provided in this phase.
DO GOOD – Your daughter will get the chance to plan, design and deliver a social action project of their choice and work alongside a charity they care about to raise money or awareness, making a difference in their local community. Last year in Lancashire, our NCS teams raised over £19,000 for local charities and organisations.
NCS is amazing value for money – the whole experience will cost you just £50. Why? Because the programme is backed by the government, which invests more than £1,500 per place. We strongly believe that no one should ever be prevented from taking part in NCS for financial reasons, which is why financial assistance is available. HOWEVER, UNTIL THE 31st DECEMBER IT IS JUST £30!
Places on the 2020 Summer programme are now live. Booking early also means that you have a choice of six start dates to choose from, allowing you to work around any existing holidays, plans or commitments.
If your daughter wishes to be on a team with her friends, then early booking is also advised.
This year we will be running an ‘Female Only’ programme – please be aware this is always our most popular programme and sells out every year. Final details of this are currently be confirmed, but if this is something your daughter wishes to take part in further information will follow.

Finally, we have also invited NCS to come into school during the Year 11 Parents Evening in the spring term if you would like to discuss anything with them in person. Other Islamic girls’ schools have taken part in the programme in the past and we know that their needs were fully met. Last year the school was given a gold award by NCS to recognise the number of girls who signed up to and took part in the programme. NCS has much to offer our pupils and we ask you to strongly consider this unique and valuable opportunity.
