NCS is a government-funded programme for Year 11s outside of term-time in the Summer. Participants work through physical, personal and creative challenges to develop useful life skills whilst engaging with their local area. Delivering the programme costs hundreds of pounds per head but we only charge parents/guardians £50 . We also offer an early applicants’ discount of £35 as well as financial support when needed.

A representative from NCS will be at Year 11 Parent’s Evening and will be there for any queries on how to get involved and sign up. There will also be a Year 11 Assembly taking place on Monday 22nd January where all students can see the opportunities on offer and express their interest in taking part. Other members of staff from NCS will be popping into lessons on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday to discuss the programme further with our Year 11 students.

BUG The Question

BUG The Question

Exams Information

We don’t want to tick you off or get a bee sting from anyone with this post. However this technique really sticks in(sect) our heads!! Team Geography showed us how to BUG questions and it has really helped some of our students unlock what the question is actually asking and gain a few extra marks in exams. We think it works because it is very simple. So, try it for yourself!
