Ecclesfield Receives NCS Champion School Award

by Ecclesfield School, December 6, 2019

Ecclesfield School has been awarded the NCS Silver Champion school award, for the second year running! The Champion School Award is only given to those schools who exceeded expectations in promoting the programme as well as recruiting a high number of Y11 students to take part. There have been a number of initiatives over the year to encourage Y11’s to take part in the national programme including assemblies, mentor group sessions, lunchtime information stands and PE lesson take over days.

The NCS programme is a fantastic way for Y11’s to kick start their post school future with a 4 week summer adventure they’ll never forget! They will enjoy week taking part in activities such as kayaking, climbing, caving; a week living on their own learning new skills employers value such as teamwork, leadership and communication. Finally, over the last 2 weeks they will create and deliver a social action project – giving them the power to help change their community. All this for only £30 if signed up before 31st of December 2019.

If you are a Y11 student or a parent carer and would like more information about next years programme, please visit – or speak to the SWFC Community Programme NCS team direct on 0114 3240737.
