The National Citizen Service (NCS) has presented North Shore Academy with the Champion School 2016-2017 award. 

The Award was presented in recognition of the amount of Year 11 students who signed up to the scheme and made a difference in their community.

Katie McCluskey, NCS recruitment coordinator said: “The staff and students at North Shore Academy are always especially welcoming. The NCS team and I always look forward to visiting. 

Teachers at the Academy see the value in NCS and the benefits that the programme gives to year 11 leavers, such as improvements in confidence, employability skills, and how students take on new volunteering opportunities. After we deliver an assembly, the NCS message is shared widely through support from Ms Sangster and the careers team, who go above and beyond to promote the programme to students and parents. 

I’m so pleased that North Shore Academy have been awarded NCS Champion School status for their work during the 2016/17 academic year. I’m looking forward to working closely with the Academy this year, too, ensuring that this year’s cohort benefit from the same NCS experience.” 

Mr Robson, Executive Principal, said: “I am thrilled to accept this award on behalf of last year’s Year 11 students, who are now working hard on the next step of their educational journey. The time and energy these young people committed to NCS is a massive credit to themselves and our academy. We hope that this year’s Year 11 cohort will be just as dedicated and pledge themselves to pick up the gauntlet and match this success.”
