Bi-Annual inspection

The de Ferrers Academy Combined Cadet Force hosted our first Bi-Annual inspection on Trent Campus.

On Tuesday 26th June. The de Ferrers Academy Combined Cadet Force hosted our first Bi-Annual inspection on Trent Campus. The CCF is now in its second year and we have had great success. Five of our Cadets have already been promoted to JNCOs which is a fabulous achievement.

Our inspecting office is Brigadier Banton who was born in Burton upon Trent and attended our Academy when it was known as Wulfric Comprehensive School.

The event took place on the Trent field down the side of the Sixth Form centre and lasted all day. 

As part of the inspection, we had a variety of different stands for out Cadets to take part in. These included. A First Aid simulation, an airsoft range, Army recruitment stand and command tasks. We also had a visit from the Mercian Regimental Mascot (A real life Ram).
