NCS (National Citizen Service)

We are one of the leading providers of the residential phase of the NCS programme. Each year we welcome around 15,000 young people from all over the UK to our centres to complete the residential element of the programme. We love that NCS share our ethos by encouraging young people to defy their limits and challenge themselves on a residential programme, which provides a great opportunity to make new friends, achieve personal goals and learn the skills that employers want. From high adrenaline activities such as the leap of faith or giant zipwire, to practical learning modules such as bushcraft or focused team building initiatives, our programmes are designed to push young people to be the best that they can be.


NCS is a 2-4 week programme for 15-17 year olds to embark on exhilarating challenges, make their mark and build skills for work and life.

The programme takes place in four stages during the school holidays. At Kingswood, we deliver the first ‘Adventure’ phase where participants bond as a group and take on our challenging activities which help to build the skills required for the further stages of the programme and their future lives.
