Removes (CCF)

Combined Cadet Force training takes place on Monday afternoons, in Monday Activity time, as well as one Field Weekend a term and regular camps and courses. All boys undertake one term of Adventure Training activities (the last term of the Shells) and at the start of the Remove year, they enter the CCF formally and begin a programme of joint military training organised by Socials. This includes navigation, first aid, field gun run and a particular emphasis on leadership and teamwork. At the end of this first term of the Removes they are offered the choice of Royal Navy, Army or Royal Air Force sections and must serve for two further terms in one of these sections. During this time they will undertake two Field Weekends, and also have an opportunity to complete a D of E Bronze practice expedition if they so choose. They are encouraged to attend a camp or course, either organised centrally by the RN, Army or RAF, or Radley's own Adventure Training camps, during the school holidays. Some then opt to stay in the CCF as NCOs in the Fifth and Sixth Forms.
