The CCF held the Annual General Inspection on Tuesday 1st May involving 203 cadets from all Houses and year groups and also including 20 cadets from our Partnership School, Mill Hill County High School. The Inspecting Officer was Captain Nick Wheeler, who is the Chief of Staff NATO Submarine Command. He was very impressed by the event and thoroughly enjoyed his visit to the School.
The Newcastle Competition was won for the first time by Atkinson House, ably led by Corporal Carroll and the Nihat Trophy for the best team leader of the competition was won for the second time by Sergeant Ching Kwok. The James-Brett Trophy for the March and Shoot competition was also won for the second time by Atkinson House and the best shot of the day was Sergeant Michael Tuft (Murray).
The exceptionally favourable weather conditions, standard of turnout and splendid performance by the Corps of Drums contributed towards one of our best inspections yet and I am confident that Captain Wheeler’s post inspection report will be extremely positive.
