In a special assembly and two launch events Year 11 have been introduced to The National Citizen Service. The National Citizen Service gives participants the opportunity to get active, to get involved and make their mark in the community. It also prepares young people for life by challenging them to take on new experiences in socially mixed teams.

The programme offers 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. 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 summer concludes with a project in the student’s local area, were the students’ design a project aimed to “make a difference” in the local community.

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