Our Fourth Form pupils were introduced to the Royal Air Force section of our CCF this week, as part of a series in which they will also hear about the Navy and Army sections.
During the session the pupils enjoyed hearing from our Fifth Form pupil, Jonty M, a Senior RAF Cadet who this week has enjoyed a virtual presentation from the RAF Red Arrows.
The pupils were also fascinated to hear about the history of the RAF from our Head of Maths and Computer Science Mike Jeffers, who has taken up the role of Officer Commanding (OC) of our RAF section.
Mr Jeffers, who also has a degree in Aeronautical Engineering, kindly brought in some aircraft models he has made himself and representative of the types of planes which existed when the RAF was founded in 1918.
No surprise, therefore, that many of our pupils left the presentation very inspired!
