Field Day 2024

4 Jul 24

Last Friday, our traditional Field Day took place, with students taking part in various activities including trips to Go Ape, Colchester Zoo and our CCF cadets at various locations enjoying different activities.

Year 7 and 8’s Visit to Go Ape and Colchester Zoo

Taking some out of their comfort zone, Go Ape offered Year 7 students the chance to climb the high wire courses and challenge themselves in all sorts of ways! Meanwhile Year 8 enjoyed learning more about endangered species as well as visiting all the other animals at Colchester Zoo. Everyone had a great day.

CCF RAF Field Day and Overnight

Our RAF cadets had a great time on their Field Day and overnight stay at Barnham training area. Enjoying a full-scale overnight complete with run-ins with real RAF regiment gunners, students took part in a real variety of activities during the day and evening. From stalking and patrolling, to air rifle shooting, everyone had a fantastic time, enjoying the experience and taking on board a host of new skills.

CCF Army Field Day and Overnight

Joining our RAF cadets at Barnham training area, the Army section deployed and set up the bashas to sleep under as soon as they arrived. Cooking their evening meal from their ration packs, Year 9 then took part in a night noises exercise, while the Year 10 conducted an ambush. Friday saw Year 9 cadets go through a rota of stands; pairs fire and movement, navigation, a stalk, and patrol observation skills. Meanwhile Year 10 cadets carried out section attacks. Another great experience for our cadets, everyone thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

CCF Navy Field Day and Overnight

Last week the Royal Navy section enjoyed an afternoon of raft building in Holbrook Bay. The breezy conditions thoroughly tested the knot-tying skills of our cadets, and gave all a good workout paddling ahead of overnight camping nearby, overlooking the beautiful Stour. After a calm and clear night under canvas, a selection of cadets took part in sailing and windsurfing at Alton Water, while others had the opportunity to have a go at archery and canoeing at the campsite and on the river Deben. Fair to say everyone enjoyed the activities, another great Field Day for our Navy cadets.
