Combined Cadet Force
The Combined Cadet Force (CCF) is an organisation sponsored by the British Armed Forces. It aims to promote teamwork, leadership, service and self-reliance through military and adventure training. Culford offers the CCF as an afternoon activity each week; no previous experience is necessary and it is not compulsory.
The activity includes military training in drill, fieldcraft, navigation, first aid and shooting and is conducted by members of the British Army’s Cadet Training Team and specially trained Cadet NCOs (Non-Commissioned Officers) drawn from within the school. NCOs have to successfully complete a challenging training course where their leadership skills are developed.
