Why join the CCF?

Becoming a cadet within the Royal Marines Combined Cadet Force can be a life-changing experience. Being a cadet will give you the opportunity to take part in a huge range of exciting and adventurous, military-themed activities – whether completing an army obstacle course, or learning to sail, there is something for everyone.

You will quickly build important skills like teamwork, confidence and self-discipline, as well as having the opportunity to take on leadership roles. CCF offers you a chance to get to know a wide-range of people from across the school, and work together to take on new challenges. Whatever your academic ability, CCF can give you the chance to shine.

CCFThe Combined Cadet Force offers an exceptional range of exciting activities for cadets to enjoy.

As well as exciting and adventurous pursuits, many of the activities you take part in with the CCF are focused on helping you gain new skills, improve your teamwork, confidence and leadership.

Training will be split over parade evenings, field days and occasional weekend camps and courses. Parade evenings take place at the school, and run once a week. This provides the basic training across a number of different areas, which is then enhanced during field days and weekend training camps, where cadets will spend longer periods of time developing a particular skill, or working towards a qualification.

There are lots of opportunities to gain recognised qualifications in disciplines like first aid, and the chance to take part in national programmes like the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award scheme.
