Former prime minister David Cameron visited a school to give an assembly about the National Citizens Service (NCS) last week.

Students and staff at Woodford County High School, High Road, Woodford Green, listened to a speech by Mr Cameron about what the programme does and why he thinks more students should get involved in it.

Mr Cameron is a patron of the government-backed programme that brings together young people from different backgrounds for a shared experience.

The programme is open to 16 and 17 year-olds and the two to four week programme includes outdoor team-building exercises, a residential for participants to learn life skills, a community-based social action project and an end of programme celebration event.
