Combined Cadet Force

St Lawrence College Combined Cadet Force (CCF) is committed to providing enjoyable, challenging and rewarding training for young people. The purpose of this training is to encourage and nurture the wide reaching set of group and personal development skills needed for these young people to be future leaders in their chosen professions and to stimulate an interest in a career as an officer in the Services.

The CCF is a tri-Service military cadet organisation based in schools and colleges throughout the UK. The CCF receives assistance and support for its training programme from the Forces, but the bulk of adult support is provided by members of school staff who are responsible for the conduct of cadet activities. CCF officers wear uniform but they are not part of the Armed Forces and carry no liability for service or compulsory training.

The role of the CCF is to help boys and girls to develop powers of leadership through training, which promotes qualities of responsibility, self-reliance, resourcefulness, endurance, perseverance and a sense of service to the community.
