The Combined Cadet Force is a MoD-sponsored youth organisation, based in the school. It teaches young people the importance of teamwork and responsibility, using the best of the ethos of the British services.
Fully supported by the Headteacher, and run by teachers, parents and friends of the school, the CCF meets during term-time after school, every Wednesday evening, until 5.45pm.
Training is by very experienced instructors and every evening, we start with a parade and then split up into sections and year groups, learning new skills, taking part in training and games, and having fun.
Everyone is issued with a uniform (with the exception of boots) and to cover essential costs, we occasionally need to charge for attending events. There are sometimes a smaller group will go to the indoor range at Ruthin School (to fire .22 target rifles) or perhaps to the indoor climbing centre on Anglesey. All young people get first aid training and the opportunity to pass St John’s assessments.
