Abbots Bromley School champions the National Citizen Service (NCS) programme, appreciating that students return to school more confident, energised and engaged after completing the programme.
Abbots Bromley School is proud to have been awarded National Citizen Service Champion School status.
Students are encouraged to make the most of their school holidays by signing up to a national youth programme that has seen hundreds of young people across the region learning new skills, meeting new friends and helping their community.
As well as meeting new people, students take on outward bound activities and learn important skills for work and life, including presentation and communication skills, before putting them into practice when developing and implementing their own community project to benefit the local area.
Whilst school work is important, here at Abbots Bromley School we encourage our students to use their school holidays to do something different that they would not always be able to do during term-time. NCS, a youth empowerment programme open to all 16 and 17 year olds, is a great example of this.
By pushing themselves outside of their comfort zones, meeting other people not in their immediate peer group and challenging themselves with new activities, students return to school with a huge boost to their confidence, resilience and maturity levels.
Our students told us that, "I often get bored during the school holidays but my time on NCS was so much fun. I did things I've never done before and learnt a lot about myself and what I’m capable of. I really feel like I've grown through these experience and I feel like I'm ready to take on the challenges the future may bring."
NCS helps young people to grow in confidence, develop the skills employers want, enhance their CVs and UCAS statement; all whilst meeting amazing people and accessing exclusive events.
