Combined Cadet Force

The Combined Cadet Force (CCF) has two sections - Army and Royal Air Force. While many activities are available to cadets in both sections, the focus of the training syllabus and testing are different. The Army cadets have more focus on fieldcraft and shooting and safety, while the RAF spend more time on more academic aviation knowledge topics and have the opportunity to undertake flying lessons with one to one tuition at RAF Cranwell.

Students are able to join in Year 9* and they can choose to enter either the Army or the Air contingent.  Parade takes place every Tuesday after school and students are expected to wear their uniforms all day.  

There are many and varied actvities.  Cadets undertake a range of survival and expedition skills.  They take leadership courses and take part in camps throughout the year.  An important aspect of the CCF is its volunteer and charity work. Students are also able to take the Duke of Edinburgh Award through the CCF. 

Some students become part of the CCF because they are interested in a career in the Armed Services; others because it is different, exciting and rewarding.

* Those joining the Academy in Year 12 with prior experience and a current rank from another contingent should be able to transfer across to The Priory's CCF without difficulty. Those wanting to join the CCF without prior experience should consult with CCF co-ordinators at the start of the academic year.
