Combined Cadet Force Summer Tour
Over the summer break, 27 of our students from our Combined Cadet Force were taken on a week’s residential to RAF Valley in Wales. They joined other CCF schools, taking part, and competing, in a range of activities including shooting, fire-fighting and coasteering (a physical activity that encompassed unaided movement along a rocky coastline via foot and/or swimming). By the end of the week the Academy had not only been handed a number of awards including for Best Drill & Ceremony, as well as Best Shot, but four of our cadets were promoted on the recommendation of the Station Warrant Officer. Well done to everyone who took part, but a special mention goes out to Leighton and Chrisbell who were promoted to Corporal, and Ranya and Jake who are now Lance Corporals.
