We were delighted to welcome UKSA into the Academy today. They attended Year 11 assembly to present Sandown Bay Academy with the 'NCS School Champions Award.'

National Citizen Service is 2-4 week programme which takes place outside of term time in the spring, summer and autumn holidays. It involves adventure, discovery, social action and finally a graduation ceremony.

Sandown Bay Academy received the award because it was the highest achieving school for NCS on the Island in Summer 2016, both in terms of signing up to and completing the programme. The award is the first and only School Champion award that has been given on the Isle of Wight and one of only three across the Hampshire region.

Ex-Sandown student Nathan Moore who graduated from NCS last summer presented the award to Mrs Charlemagne.

Year 11 students were given forms to sign up for this summer’s NCS Programme. It is a fantastic, life changing programme and costs just £35.00 for 4 weeks. The Academy can support you with this fee if you are experiencing financial hardship.
