There are CCF contingents in over 400 secondary schools all over the UK, offering young people a broad range of challenging, exciting, adventurous and educational activities.
Our aim is to enable the development of personal responsibility, leadership and self-discipline. Each CCF is an educational partnership between the school and the Ministry of Defence, and a CCF may include Royal Navy, Royal Marines, Army or Royal Air Force sections.
Our Royal Navy Contingent is over 40 strong and contains cadets at both Key Stages 4 & 5. It is managed by qualified military staff both internally & externally and contains a broad range of exciting activities based around the RN CCF Syllabus that include leadership, afloat activities and adventurous training.
Annual camps are held at Britannia Royal Naval College (Dartmouth), HMS Bristol (Portsmouth) and the Garelochead Training Area (Scotland).
In addition to these camps there are over a hundred courses to choose from throughout the year, many leading to nationally-recognised qualifications. As well as the afloat activities, cadets can do scuba diving, mountaineering, mountain biking, rock climbing, leadership, first aid, NPLQ, ice climbing, skiing, flying, shooting, and there is even a band course for budding musicians. These courses are sponsored by the Navy and therefore cost a fraction of the civilian equivalent.
