Our aim at the NCS is clear and specific;
To provide outstanding A Level education and examination results for able students in Newham and East London to enable them to progress to the most competitive universities, including Oxford and Cambridge as well as prestigious universities world wide.
We opened in September 2014 and are based in stunning Grade 2 listed buildings in East Ham with excellent resources and facilities to support outstanding A Level teaching and learning. Most importantly, expert teachers who have been educated at some of the most respected UK universities will help you get the best possible A Level results allowing you to access the world’s best Universities or high status School Leaver Programmes. Within four years we’ve established a reputation as being one of the best sixth forms in London and the UK, with many media outlets talking about our work in supporting our students to realise their true potential.
95% of our most recent cohort received offers from Russell Group universities, a year which also saw us send our first student to continue studies at MIT in America. According to our most recent ALPs Report, we are ranked in the top 1% of all UK schools for value added which validates the exceptional and outstanding quality of teaching at the NCS.
These outcomes demonstrate we are starting to have a profound effect on improving social mobility, improving the life chances of our young people and their families.Find out about The NCS Vision
