Team one arrived at Kinabatagan yesterday for their KOPEL project and have spent today collecting and planting seeds to help grow more trees in areas of the jungle affected by deforestation. It's been a hot but productive day! 🌲🌿 https://t.co/8gRz1aci3N

CCF

Students have the opportunity to join the Combined Cadet Force at the start of the summer term towards the end of Year 9 and may continue until the end of their school career (subject to Contingent staff agreement). A school assembly will be run in the spring term in order to explain the range of activities available and to launch the application process – necessary as spaces are limited.

We are fortunate to partner with Reed’s Independent School in Cobham and meet there on Monday afternoons after school offering training and activities in both the RAF and Army sections.

The aim of the CCF is to engender a sense of public service and to develop qualities of teamwork, resilience, self-reliance, responsibility, resourcefulness and leadership in young people. It is run along military lines but is not intended to be a recruitment vehicle for the Armed Services.

The CCF is run by Officers and staff from both schools as well as by sixth form Non-Commissioned Officers. Cadets take part in overnight exercises and camps across the year and have the opportunity to take part in flying, station visits, shooting days, various competitions, military skills, adventure training and other activities. Overseas trips are arranged each year to places such as Cyprus for scuba diving. Cadets in Year 10 may, potentially, complete their Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award if there is sufficient interest from both schools.

A subscription is payable for each year and covers costs for most activities within the UK.
