The National Citizen Service, the UK’s flagship youth programme for 16 and 17 year olds, has again named Liskeard School and Community College a ‘Champion School’ after being selected from thousands of schools participating across the country. The school has excelled at motivating students to take up extracurricular activities, specifically encouraging young people to attend the four week programme during their holidays, leading to an increased interest in volunteering.

On NCS programmes, teenagers meet other young people from different schools and stay in university style accommodation while they learn more about their community and how they can make a difference through social action projects. Following this, the young people spend 30 hours dedicated to creating and implementing their own social action campaign in the local community.

Alex Lingard, Head Teacher, said: “It’s an excellent achievement to be given Champion School status for the second time. Our commitment to the programme is upheld by the amazing feedback we receive from our students, and the noticeable difference we see in their attitudes when they return from the programme. On NCS our students meet people from different backgrounds, step out of their comfort zone, take on new challenges and learn about how they can make a difference in the community. This means our young people can return with a better understanding of the world around them, are more eager to volunteer and more importantly are more confident and resilient.”

The school was delighted to welcome The Mayoress of Liskeard, Councillor Jane Pascoe and the Rt Hon Sheryll Murray MP to celebrate the schools success.
