The ChallengeIn two assemblies today Mark Higgins of The Challenge offered an amazing opportunity to MCMA’s Year 11s; a once in a lifetime action packed summer programme designed to bring out the best in young people and develop essential skills for success.

The programme consists of three challenges.  The first a residential outdoor challenge such as abseiling or hiking is followed by four days at university working on a project in Drama, Media, Photography, Enterprise  or Sport.

The final project is undertaken in the student’s local area, students design a project aimed to “make a difference” in the local community.

The Challenge is a considerable investment in the young people who take part; it costs on average £1500 per person.  However, all The Challenge asks of MCMA parents is £50 and if pupils sign up in three weeks they only have to pay £35.

The Challenge Network is the largest provider of the National Citizenship Service, the Government’s youth development policy.
