National Citizen Service (NCS) at St Thomas More Catholic School.

National Citizen Service (NCS) has teamed up with Heart North East to offer parents the chance to win a family break.

The National Citizenship Service team was in school during our Health Day to talk to the Year 11 students about the scheme and the encourage them to sign up.

We’d be very grateful if you could share information of this competition with parents/guardians of Year 11s via email or social media – and why not enter yourself for your chance to win!


NCS is a life-changing programme for 15-17 year olds to discover who they are and what they’re truly capable of.

They’ll support each other through outdoor challenges, learn skills for work and life and give back to their communities. In short, they’ll realise they’re unstoppable together.

And to complete an incredible summer, we’re giving you the chance to win a family adventure in the Lake District.


In short, NCS is 3 weeks that could change your teen’s life.

Whether they’re thinking about ways to boost their UCAS statement and CV or just need a break after a long year at school, then NCS is for them. Along the way, they’ll meet great new friends and make a real difference in their local community.

Over 500,000 young people have already become unstoppable together – will your teen be next?
