Students in Years 8, 9, 10 and 11 can join the CCF (Combined Cadet Force).

CCF is a unique educational partnership funded primarily by the Military of Defence which operates in schools across the UK; Whitecross Hereford runs this together with Hereford Cathedral School. Through military themed and adventurous activities, cadets have the opportunity to develop skills such as leadership, responsibility, self-reliance, resourcefulness, endurance and perseverance.

Cadets will take part in the annual Remembrance Parade in the city centre each November. There are also opportunities to attend camps where cadets can enjoy activities such as raft building, rock climbing and kayaking. Section relevant activities include visiting ships, sailing, flying and range days where cadets put their weapons handling and markmanship skills to the test.

All Whitecross Cadets please note: CCF Field Days are compulsory and have been confirmed as 11 & 12 October 2018 (departing after school on 10/10/18).
