All pupils (from Yr9 upwards) are eligible to join the Royal School CCF contingent. This activity takes place each Tuesday afternoon. Pupils can elect to join one of two services – the Army or the Royal Air Force. The majority of the CCF Officers are members of staff, although this is not always the case. During the year there are many CCF camps which cadets can attend. All cadets attend camps at operational bases. There are many opportunities for cadets: shooting, flying both in powered aircraft and in gliders. Some cadets are able to fly solo or take control of twin piloted aircraft. In overseas expeditions the Contingent encourages and supports cadets who aspire to join expeditions in distant lands – Canada, Lesotho, Peru, Bavaria, Kwazulu-Natal – as an avenue to self-development, especially through outreach to help the people they meet. For example, the Rocky Mountain Challenge, on exchange with the Royal Canadian Army Cadets, is an outstanding opportunity– six weeks in the Rockies with a party of British and Canadian cadets, speaking both English and French, up mountains, across glaciers, down raging rivers.
