CCF (Combined Cadet Force)
Leadership is an important life skill and the CCF offers many opportunities to develop it. We prepare our cadets to be self-disciplined and willing to accept personal challenge. Girls and boys may join any of the three sections: Army, Royal Navy and Royal Air Force. The Army concentrates on the self-discipline of field tactics; the Navy provides the opportunity to engage in a wide range of maritime activities and uses our own boats located in the nearby docks, whilst the RAF takes full advantage of the availability of local air experience flights.
The broad function of the CCF within Clifton College is to provide a disciplined youth organisation in a school so that students may develop powers of leadership by means of training to promote the qualities of responsibility, self-reliance, resourcefulness, endurance, perseverance and tolerance for each other.
There is a certain amount of military training, which is designed to give young people a chance to exercise responsibility and leadership, to provide them with some knowledge of our defence forces, and to encourage those who might be interested in becoming members of the Armed Services.
