Ormiston Maritime Academy is proud to have a Combined Cadet Force contingent within the academy. Students can join the CCF from Year 8.

About the CCF

Our aim is to enable the development of personal responsibility, leadership and self-discipline. CCF units in schools give young people the life skills and self-confidence to take charge of their lives so they can reach their full potential at school and beyond, including in employment.

The CCF aims to set young people up for life long success and inspire cadets to achieve. We promote the qualities of responsibility, self-reliance, resourcefulness and a sense of service to the community. Activities include; drill, skill at arms, shooting, fieldcraft, first aid and adventurous training. By joining the CCF, cadets also have the opportunity to contribute to the wider community and represent their school and contingent at the local annual remembrance parade.

Joining the CCF provides a wonderful and unique opportunity to take part in exciting Army themed training activities and events, all of which focus on building the cadets’ courage, self-discipline, respect for others, integrity, loyalty and commitment as well as developing effective communication skills, confidence, being part of a team with a winning spirit and a sense of pride and achievement. As a youth organisation, the CCF strives to give cadets a fun, enjoyable experience in a safe environment.
