Army Cadet Force
yYou can enrol for Cadets from the age of twelve, (Year 8 until your 18th birthday). The Cadets parade every Friday from 4.00pm until 7.00pm, therefore you can attend straight after school. The uniform is provided; all you need to purchase are the boots.
Cadets will work their way through Star Levels which include; Field craft, Drill, Navigation, Skill at Arms, Shooting and various other topics. Cadets can work their way up the rank structure and develop their Leadership Skills. More training opportunities are available, the more senior you become; these opportunities include Leadership Courses, Instructor Courses and Adventurous Training Courses that go to Spain and Norway.
We have many weekends away throughout the year including an Annual Camp in the summer. The dates for next year’s Camp are Saturday 29 July - Sunday 6 August 2017.
Cadets have several other Adventurous Training activities throughout the year which include Ski Cadet in February and Canoe Cadet in May both held over half term holidays. Cadets also participate in sports competitions that range from County level to Regional to National level, these include Cross Country, Football, Rugby, Athletics, Hockey, Swimming and Orienteering.
