Brine Leas and Malbank in Nantwich are among five schools in South Cheshire to be awarded champion school status for their involvement in National Citizen Service.

The NCS is a government-backed youth programme for teenagers, helping them develop broader skills and values.

Sandbach School, Alsager School, and Sandbach High School are also among the Youth Federation schools that have received the status.

NCS is delivered in Cheshire West and Cheshire East by Youth Federation – a charity based in Ellesmere Port dedicated to improving lives of young people and enabling them to thrive, regardless of their background or circumstance.

“We’re delighted to offer ongoing support for NCS as we believe it plays a vital role in the development of our students as they transform into adulthood,” said Ann-Marie Morgan, NCS Area Manager at Youth Federation.

Each of the schools have been awarded the certificate, signed by the Prime Minister, from former NCS graduates at a special ceremony to mark the achievements of each champion school in the region.

The graduate presenters who hosted the event enthusiastically outlined the positive impact that NCS had on them and what they had gained by taking part.

NCS is an opportunity open to all 16 and 17 year olds across England.

Over the course of four weeks, participants spend time away from home experiencing outdoor life to its full, working with local businesses and charities to build new skills.

Young people then put their new skills to good use to create a project that will help others better enjoy the local community.

To date, more than 500,000 young people have taken part in NCS, which is delivered regionally by Ingeus, in partnership with local youth organisations such as Youth Federation.

“All of our champion schools can be really proud of what they have achieved,” said Ingeus NCS National Marketing Manager, Sarah Hartley.

“They have fully supported their young people and encouraged them to aim high.

“All of our graduates and their schools have achieved some amazing results, of which they can all be really proud.”

Other South Cheshire schools involved in NCS include Shavington High School, Middlewich High School, St Thomas Moore Catholic High School, Ruskin Sport College, and Sir William Stainer Community School.
