We are continually developing enrichment opportunities and initiatives for students at Eggar’s to excel beyond the national curriculum.
See the tab below for information on the NCS!
National Citizen Service (NCS)
National Citizen Service (NCS) is a youth programme designed specially for 16 and 17-year-olds. Every year, they run summer and autumn experiences in the school holidays, all over England and Northern Ireland. Students mix with people from different backgrounds, pick up skills to set them up for life and have the opportunity to speak up and make a difference in their community. It provides them with an amazing springboard for the future by developing new skills, confidence and a broader set of horizons.

WORLD RESTART A HEART DAY
World Restart a Heart Day is a day aimed at teaching secondary school children CPR and delivered by South Central Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust. They have teamed up with the Resuscitation Council UK and The British Heart Foundation to provided hands-on CPR training to our students, and will commence again here at Eggar's post Covid-19. During the last Restart a Heart Day, more than 5,000 youngsters were taught cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) across the South Central Ambulance Service operating area.
Currently, in the UK, less than one (8.6%) in ten people survive a cardiac arrest. If we achieved the same survival rates of countries like Norway (25%), where CPR is taught in schools, an additional 100 lives could be saved each week - the equivalent of approximately 5,000 every year.
Do the Maths! Year 10 students Libby, Evie, Jess and Cali took up the Alton School Maths Challenge this week. Working with four future Eggar's students from Bentley School, they tackled three rounds of very difficult problem-solving maths. They were fantastic ambassadors https://t.co/onVvrb3qcJ 10:18 PM - 25 Jun 2022
