Champion School Status for Falmouth!
Falmouth School is delighted to have been awarded Champion School status in recognition of the enthusiasm and dedication of our students who participated in the National Citizen Service (NCS) Summer Programme in 2016. The NCS programme has established itself over the last couple of years as being a very well respected way to both support the wider development of our Young People and in doing so support volunteer work within our communities.
More than 30 students from Year 11 participated in the scheme after their GCSE examinations in the summer of 2016 – a record for the school and the highest number from any school across Cornwall.
The Falmouth School students joined over thirty thousand NCS graduates across the UK who completed the part-residential programme run by BF Adventure in association with NCS.
We encourage our students to look beyond their GCSE and A Level studies and present themselves as confident and well-rounded individuals who are independent and creative, responsible and caring. NCS offers students the chance to develop themselves in these ways and to give back to their communities.
After spending their summer holidays giving back to the community, creating social action projects with a difference, our students’ impact has been far reaching. After working with local charities and partner organisations for local and national causes our NCS graduates are now equipped to continue their efforts independent of the programme.
Presenting the school with a plaque Clare Davidson, NCS manager for BF Adventure said: “We have been working with Falmouth School over the past couple of years and have been overwhelmed by the support and contribution from both the school and the students. This award is recognition of their positive contribution to Cornwall. As the student alumni continue to grow, they should feel proud of the positive legacy they leave among their younger school peers.”
