Ellesmere College


The Combined Cadet Force within Ellesmere College comprises three Sections (Royal Navy, Army and Royal Air Force) under the overall command of the Contingent Commander - Lt Col M P Clewlow.

During term time, CCF training takes place on a Thursday afternoon with all three Sections offering a variety of activities to the cadets. These activities enable them to acquire useful life skills, develop their leadership and management capabilities and use their initiative in unfamiliar and challenging environments.

Camps and courses throughout the year enable cadets to build upon this weekly training, enabling the consolidation of the many skills learnt in different Ministry of Defence establishments and training facilities across the UK. Cadets also have the opportunity to pursue the Duke of Edinburgh Award schemes (Bronze, Silver and Gold) through the CCF, with a dedicated adventurous training camp at Easter.
