These results reflect the tremendous hard work, commitment and dedication of our remarkable students. We are also hugely indebted to the talented, highly supportive and caring NCS teachers without whom these results would not have been possible, as well as colleagues from our Partner Schools, our strategic partner UCL and the Local Authority for their continued commitment and support.

The NCS has a clear and determined vision, to ‘inspire students to do what inspires them; empowering all to make a positive and lasting contribution to society’. The NCS’ role is to unlock the great potential of our students by raising their level of expectation and giving them the confidence and habits of mind to perform with distinction. We instil in our students a belief that anything is possible if they have the right work ethic and strive on a daily basis to improve both academically and personally, so that they not only gain the highest academic success but have the skills and confidence to become leaders of their professions and in society.
Our greatest asset are our highly skilled, caring and supportive teachers who believe strongly in The NCS vision and are dedicated to ensuring our students are prepared for the challenges of the 21st century. Our outstanding results could not be achieved without the high quality, personalised learning and teaching that takes place on a daily basis, not to mention the regular and scheduled intervention classes ensuring that no NCS student is left behind. To find out more about them please click here.
With our strong links to high profile multinational companies and industry experts, the Emerging Talent Programme has been created to give NCS students an insight into the career they have decided to pursue. It has been designed in conjunction with industry/academic experts ensuring it is relevant, cutting edge and challenging.
The programme has been designed to expose NCS students to the skills and knowledge required so that they are in a better position to compete for a place at a competitive university or high profile internship. It provides students with career insight days, relevant industry placements, mentoring from industry experts and assistance from our very own NCS Ambassadors. The key areas it focuses on are Accountancy, Banking and Finance, Law, Engineering, Medicine and Dentistry. We are currently looking to add to our suite of practice areas given the success of the programme to date.
Over the summer months our students have been on some unique all expenses paid trips as part of our programme. You can read about some of these experiences below:
With this mindset instilled and the skills imbued, we open the doors directly to the industries and professions that our students wish to progress into. Workshops with multinational companies are a regular occurrence at The NCS. Students have visited the headquarters of KPMG, Barclays, CMS Cameron McKenna (Law), Accenture, White and Case LLP, to name a few. Those looking to progress into the medical and dentistry profession have had week long work placements at Barts and The London hospitals and within King’s College. These workshops not only give an insight into the world of work, but also build upon the vital presentation and soft skills that we as an institution feel are vital to prepare students to be successful citizens of the world.
The NCS is privileged to be able to welcome high profile guest speakers from the world of academia and industry to share their knowledge and experiences with NCS students as part of our promise to provide students with a holistic and well-rounded education. Our students are routinely exposed to the latest thinking and discourse from a range of different areas, ranging from political philosophy to science of the brain. Our lecture programme has been designed to enhance our super curriculum and provide our students with an alternative perspective to some of the material they have been exposed to during their lessons, giving them a depth and breadth of knowledge beyond A level studies.
To date we’ve welcomed high profile politicians such as Ed Miliband, Sir Vince Cable and Natalie Bennett who’ve given NCS students unique insights into recent events and engaged with them on areas of their own interests and studies. Science students were recently tested on the importance of science literacy by Lord Robert Winston and inspired to explore engineering and mathematics by Andy Green.
We also facilitate lectures by leading professors and those doing interesting work in industries from banking, to journalism. All of them giving an insight into top level academia and ideas to set the mind alight.
“An engaging, motivating and inspirational speech from a strong, independent leader.”
“It was a pleasure to meet a high profile politician who enabled me to widen my knowledge in this subject area.``
To have a strategic partnership with a leading Russel Group University such as UCL provides unparalleled opportunities for students and staff at the NCS. Students are privileged to be able to attend exclusive master classes on subject specific topics/areas that afford them a different perspective on their A level studies greatly enhancing their UCAS application. UCL work in close collaboration with NCS to ensure that A level students are well prepared for study at undergraduate level and these skills are embedded into our curriculum to ease transition from KS5 to undergraduate level. In tandem with UCL academics, NCS staff discuss and share good practice on matters relating to A level study and higher education provision and NCS staff benefit from the latest academic developments augmenting their classroom practice.
As The NCS’ reputation has grown, many students decided to join us from other institutions and take advantage of the high quality learning and teaching and the unrivalled enrichment opportunities on offer.
We’re even grabbing the attention of the very leaders whom our students strive to follow. Former Labour leader Ed Miliband had nothing but praise for our approach to A Level education when he visited. Mathematician, author and journalist Simon Singh opted to work with us on a long term project regarding the super setting of maths in secondary schools. Andy Green (Land speed world record holder, currently building a new 1000mph car) was full of praise for NCS students’ inquisitive nature, confidence and knowledge. Below we’ve a selection of testimonials both on our work and students.
Really enjoyed speaking and meeting your brilliant students. Thanks for having me!
Have enjoyed a wonderful visit - great questions, an engaged audience and I hope lots of pupils who will be doing politics!
“I’m hugely confident about future generations. The questions these students have asked are as good as any I’ve ever heard.”
The students all demonstrated enthusiasm, energy and passion on the subject of what defines leadership and sighted good examples of leaders in our society. They are all talented and bright and i am sure wil grow into strong leaders.
"If you are serious about maths & looking for a 6th form college in Newham, then this place is a bit special."
“One of the great things about this school from my experience of it is that it’s encouraging high ambition and for nobody to stand in your way and I think that’s really important.”
On behalf of KPMG, we would like to express our gratitude to the NCS for providing us access to such talented students. Their drive and determination is unrivalled and is a testament to the high quality teaching at the NCS.
Such an honour to be invited & incredibly sharp questions!
A real pleasure to address an outstanding group of students embarked on a great new initiative - I wish all of them and their teachers much success.
“The NCS is so good for maths is because if you’re interested in studying it at university, the sixth form years are when you need to be stretched. You will get that here and that’s really valuable.”
It has been a real privilege for everyone involved with The NCS to be able to attract some high profile and world renowned academics & personalities to The NCS from Lord Mervyn King (ex-Governor of the Bank of England) to Vince Cable (Former Business Secretary in the 2010-15 Coalition Government) and many others, exposing our students to contemporary thoughts, ideas and opinions from the world of politics/economics to the sciences.

The NCS provides work placements and experiences with some of the leading companies in the UK due to the extensive contact list we have. We guarantee our prospective medicine students (providing they have the grade profile) a work placement either shadowing consultants at leading London Hospitals or in GP surgeries. Our politics students have visited the European Parliament, viewed senate proceedings in Washington and seen the chambers of the United Nations in New York. Our science students have worked on a unique science project, spending two weeks collaborating in Japan. This summer we sent two students for our first overseas work placement – a week in Abu Dhabi working for White and Case LLP. However, our reach does not stop here, we have successfully arranged for many of our students to be given work related experiences in many fields fulfilling our commitment to them when they joined us.
Attaining outstanding A levels is no longer enough and it’s important that students develop and enhance their personal, ‘soft’ skills to give them a competitive advantage when it comes to interviews or public speaking. Our soft skills programme is designed in conjunction with, and delivered by high profile companies from a wide range of industry sectors.
We also believe that our students can be taught industry specific concepts and ideas well before they join their chosen profession. NCS students routinely have an opportunity to hear from experts in their field and grapple with some of the ‘big ideas’ well before it’s expected of them.
