Congratulations to Upper Sixth pupils who recently received promotions in the Downside Combined Cadet Force (CCF).

The awards were presented by Lt Col Barrett, Contigent Commander, to the following:

Oliver Cattermole: Platoon Sergeant Major, Anzio
Thomas Green: Regimental Sergeant Major
Nicholas Hobbs: Platoon Sergeant Major, Nijmegen
Michael Kealey Junior Under Officer
Daisy Marsh: Head of Third Form

The CCF has always been an integral part of life at Downside. It exists to enable the development of personal responsibility, leadership and self-discipline and offers our pupils a broad range of challenging, exciting, adventurous and educational activities from bushcraft and summer camp to paddle boarding and survival skills. Cadets also undertake Ten Tors, Duke of Edinburgh, and the CCF Drum & Pipe Band leads the annual Remembrance Parade in Bath.
