Combined Cadet Force

Partner: St Thomas More Catholic School, , Blaydon-on-Tyne
Partner type: Maintained School
Project category: CCF

Dame Allan’s Schools and St Thomas More School have set up a Combined Cadet Force Royal Marines Section (CCF). This has been conceived and organised as a partnership arrangement, neither school had a CCF in place before and this further enhances the relationship between our schools.

The CCF offers young people a broad range of challenging, exciting, adventurous and educational activities. Our aim is to enable the development of personal responsibility, leadership and self-discipline.


Pupils in Year 9 upwards are able to join the CCF and parades take place once a week.
