Excelling with the Prince’s Trust

E-mail Print

Princes TrustJulie Skipp (Head of the National XL Programme for the Prince’s Trust) visited Bangor Academy to present Year 12 Prince’s Trust participants with their Bronze XL Scheme certificates.

The scheme allows students to engage in personal development and teamwork activities as they volunteer to take on extra responsibilities in school and in the wider community.

Ultimately students can achieve a GCSE equivalent qualification on completion of all three bronze, silver and gold components.

Mr Hyndman said; “We introduced the programme in September 2009 for a selected group of students and have had great advice and guidance from the trust. Our students have enjoyed the programme immensely and have shown great determination and enthusiasm to complete it successfully. I look forward to the continuing liaison with the Prince’s Trust and to even greater success in the future."
