CCF

Plymouth College Combined Cadet Force (CCF) dates back to the 4th May 1871 when it was attached to the 2nd Brigade of the Devon Artillery Volunteers.

In more modern times, the contingent is affiliated to HMS BULWARK; 165 Port and Maritime Regiment and RAF St Mawgan. The CCF is a part of the wider cadet organisation funded by the Ministry of Defence and the cadets are the largest youth movement in the United Kingdom.

Plymouth College CCF takes students from Year 10 onwards and it consists of 3 sections: Navy, Army and RAF. Our aim is to provide challenging training within a structured and disciplined environment in order that we can develop their self-discipline; leadership skills and self-reliance. We also have a lot of fun along the way!

The contingent also offers adventurous training opportunities as well as expeditions abroad which are funded by the military. The cadets have recently travelled to Bavaria and Canada and they have also undertaken activities ranging from scuba diving to kayaking.

There have also been recent visits and trips onboard HMS BULWARK; The Queens Own Gurkha Logistic Regiment; the Royal Naval Academy Dartmouth and the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst.

Finally, our cadet achievements have been significant. In the past 12 months, a member of the contingent has been selected as a Lord Lieutenant of Devon Cadet; another has achieved an RAF Flying Scholarship and the successful 35 mile Ten Tors team of 2014 were all members of the CCF
