The school operates a popular CCF contingent incorporating Army and RAF sections. Weekly training includes field/camp craft, map and compass/orienteering, drill/turnout, first aid, physical activity, command tasks, skill at arms and competition shooting. All these activities qualify toward The Duke of Edinburgh Award at Bronze, Silver and Gold level.
Each term the contingent attends a military weekend camp and an annual training camp during July. RAF cadets also participate in flying and gliding at a RAF station. Gliding scholarships are also available.
