Cadet Force

CCF(ARMY) CADETS

Introduction / Overview

Very few schools offer this opportunity to their pupils, we are very proud that we do.

On the 4th October 2017 Royton and Crompton with the support of Colonel Harrison signed the Armed Forces Covenant.

Our Combined Cadet Force (CCF) is part of a partnership between the Ministry of Defence and schools. ERACA CCF is affiliated to the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers with a contingent strength of approximately 30 cadets with plans to increase the number to 100 plus by 2025. The CCF draws on various different aspects of military training such as first aid, navigation, marksmanship, field craft, weapon training and drill. The CCF can support cadets to achieve the required standards to complete the Duke of Edinburgh Bronze and Silver Awards.

Aims of the Unit

The aim of our CCF is to help our young people develop as leaders and to promote qualities of co-operation and teamwork, discipline, resourcefulness, responsibility, independence, endurance and determination.
