Cadets tested their ability to take the lead and motivate a team under pressure in a recent leadership course. 

Six army cadets participated in a series of leadership scenarios that required them to solve problems and make leadership decisions even in challenging circumstances. 

The challenging two-day exercise took place in a local military training area, with cadets staying out overnight in shelters and cooking their own rations. 

Major Goddard, CCF Contingent Commander, commented: “First-class leadership skills were on show from all the cadets, even when they felt tired or under pressure.” 

The CCF is an activity offered to pupils in the Removes (Year 10) and above at the school.
