The Challenge

This Summer Year 11 and Year 12 students will be given the opportunity to sign up to NCS with The Challenge, a once-in-a-lifetime experience for 15 – 17 year olds that builds skills and confidence and helps them get ahead in work and life.  This is a part-residential programme which begins with three parts that take place over 18 days, with breaks in between, after exams in the summer.

Last summer several Gordon’s students took part in the National Citizen Service Programme and came back with great stories to tell.  Should you wish to ask for more information regarding their experience, please speak to Mrs Radford (

Students in Year 11 and Year 12 have the opportunity to explore the NCS Autumn and Summer programmes through a series of workshops and assemblies, delivered by NCS staff during PSHE / Open Study lessons. The NCS also exhibit their programmes and provide information to parents
