Yesterday Year 11 pupils received a presentation about the National Citizens Service (NCS) which is a scheme run for students in the summer after their GCSEs. For only £25 (free-school meals) to £50 (non-free school meals) pupils will attend a one week “Outward Bounds” style residential course, receive leadership training and then are supported in running a local charitable project. The whole course lasts three weeks. HDHS has been a “Champion School” for the high numbers of pupils who have attended in the past.
NCS will return to HDHS at break time on Friday 24th January in the Lighthouse canteen to answer further questions. At this stage students need only submit an Expression of Interest form to receive more details. Please see Mr Garnham with any questions.
