National Citizen Service Assembly

On Wednesday 30 January Danielle from the National Citizen Service came in to Braeside School to invite Year 11 pupils to their summer scheme.

The National Citizen Service is a voluntary personal and social development programme for 15–17 year olds in England and Northern Ireland, funded largely by money from the UK Government.

The summer scheme would be great opportunity for Year 11 to push themselves outside their comfort zones in the summer holiday after their GCSE examinations.

The programme involves a few days away from home, learning life skills and making a difference in the community. It would give plenty of beneficial experiences and qualifications to include when writing a  CV or personal statement. For further information please see
