Discovering Life in all its Fullness

Sixth Form

Students at The King’s engage are actively encouraged and supported to engage with NCS as a means to enhance their personal development.


As a four-phase programme, NCE plays a fundamental role in developing our students’ awareness of financial literacy by providing endless opportunities to engage in a whole host of new experiences. These principles along with the prospects they afford, are detailed below:


  • Adventure: Five days away from home, taking on adrenaline-fuelled activities like rock-climbing, canoeing and archery;

  • Discovery: A week living independently, learning essential life skills from local business leaders and charities; gaining confidence in public speaking, communication skills and budgeting;

  • Social Action: Making their mark.  Year 12s devise a community project based on a local issue they feel passionate about and 

  • Celebration: Taking stock of achievements. Young people celebrate triumphs with fellow NCSers at one great event.  This is just the beginning!

For more information about how our sixth formers have been engaging in financial literacy, please see our portfolio of events below.
