NPA – National Citizenship Service

· From Kevin Hartley

Dear Parent/Guardian,

 Final few places available on the fantastic NCS Summer Programme!

We’d like to tell you about a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity which your son or daughter can take part in this summer. National Citizen Service (NCS) is a government-backed programme which is supported by Nene Park Academy.  NCS helps young people build their confidence and gain new skills while having fun and giving back to their community – the best possible springboard for their future. Whether they’re about to start sixth form or college, or preparing to enter the working world, signing up to NCS is one of the best decisions a teenager can make.

But don’t just take our word for it; we carried out a study of 200 teachers, who agreed that young people who try something new during the school holidays have a more positive attitude, and are more focused than their peers when they return to school or start college.

So, what is NCS? NCS is a unique full-time part-residential programme focused around fun and discovery, plus 30 hours committed to a community project that benefits both young people and society. Young people build skills for work and life, while taking on new challenges and adventures, making new friends, and contributing to the local community. Government backing means that it costs just £50 or less to take part in our 4-week summer programme which covers all activities and residential costs. Bursaries are available on a case by case basis and support is provided for young people with additional needs.

Limited places are available on NCS Programmes in Peterborough starting early July and finish dates around end of August.

We will be in school on Friday 4th May at lunch time if students are keen to sign up for the programme if they haven’t already. They will have an opportunity to take away a sign-up pack at the lunch time event which includes all our programme dates and a sign-up form.  We only have limited places this summer and would advise to reserve a place by a sign-up form and sending back asap. Alternatively, you can secure your place online at

For more information, please don’t hesitate to call us on 07535 303400.

Best wishes
