The RAF Section aims to give cadets an insight into the roles and duties undertaken by all ranks in the RAF in a variety of ways.
Annual camps in the July enable cadets to bring together all their theory and practical lessons and apply them on an active RAF Station. Cadets will experience life as an Air Traffic Controller, Fire Fighter, Regiment Soldier, Aerospace Battle Manager and of course Pilot and Navigator to name a few.
We are very fortunate with our close links to 10 AEF at RAF Woodvale in Formby in that cadets can expect to go flying in the Grob Tutor (used by the RAF as their Basic Trainer) at least once a year. Cadets who are qualified and of the right calibre can be selected for specialist scholarships and training - learning to fly solo in Gliders and Single propeller aircraft, pilot navigation courses, drill instructor, oversea's camps and visits and many more.
We hope to instill and develop students teamwork, leadership and problem solving skills in a variety of activities including promotion through the ranks, command (leadership) tasks both at school and on camps and visits to the RAF Outreach Team barracks in Aintree, Liverpool.
