Success for our CHS CCF Contingent

Wonderful news for our CCF Contingent.

SUCCESS FOR HIGH SCHOOL’S COMBINED CADET FORCE

Members of the RAF Section from Chichester High School’s CCF achieved an impressive First Place at the South West Region Air Squadron Trophy Competition held on Sunday 2nd February at Blandford Forum, Dorset.

Not only did they win the overall prize, they also collected first place trophies in the First Aid, Drill, Aircraft Recognition, and RAF Knowledge elements.

The Team went on to the National Competition held at Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire on Sunday 8th March where they joined fifteen schools from across the United Kingdom.

The team finished in level third place, an incredible feat as they were the highest placed academy or state-funded school.
