King Edward's School CCF is numbered among the oldest contingents in the country, establishing a corps in 1900. It is an army only section and, since 2006, has been proudly affiliated to the King's Royal Hussars and combines their unique 'brown beret' with our very own original cap badge.
Pupils can join in Year 8 and the broad function of the CCF is to develop valuable life skills such as leadership, responsibility, self-reliance, resourcefulness, endurance and perseverance. The weekly syllabus is progressional throughout the 6 years, allowing cadets to move up the ranks and gain valuable life and leadership qualities.
Through a unique local partnership, we are proud to welcome pupils and staff from Beechen Cliff School to our cadet and officer ranks. Collectively, there is over a 100 cadets on roll in total.
