Students and staff are celebrating after achieving the NCS Trust Gold Award.
This is in recognition of 50% of the 2019 Year 11 cohort taking part in National Citizen Service.
NCS is a three or four week part-residential programme which takes place in the summer for young people finishing their GCSEs.
Designed to prepare young people for independent life, the programme consists of outdoor activities, living in university-style accommodation and developing and delivering a social action project.
St Benedict’s current Year 11 students will be taking part again this summer.
