The CCF is a voluntary after-school organisation open to boys, and girls from Nonsuch, in Year 9 and above (with application open at the end of their Year 8 time). It offers a tremendous opportunity to engage in some challenging and exciting activities, and to understand a little more about the armed services.
The CCF is not a military recruiting organisation. Cadets join to take advantage of the activities and training that the CCF offers, not specifically to join the army or RAF. The army and RAF provide good links with us, and cadets wear the armed services uniform (multi-terrain patterned combat gear) when on parade or at camps.
The main aim of the CCF is to offer cadets a truly enjoyable and fulfilling experience. Our cadets take to the life of CCF very readily, and comment on how much it teaches them in terms of team-work and leadership through the years. Many strong and lasting friendships are formed in CCF and there is no doubt that it is a vibrant and healthy section of the school community.
