Formed in 1898 Solihull School CCF is one of the oldest cadet units in Britain. The CCF is a purely voluntary activity that takes place on a Monday after school. A special period on the timetable is reserved for the NCOs (senior pupils) for their training and preparation.

There are consistently over 120 cadets across both the Army and Royal Air Force sections. We have a number of officers on staff – both male and female, as well as an SSI who was a regular NCO in the Army.

There are many exciting activities planned throughout the year. Each Section has a Field Day and an Annual Summer Camp. There are military training weekends, range days, adventure training packages and regional competitions, the majority, open to members of both sections. The RAF Section also offers the opportunity to fly both gliders and single propeller Tutors at RAF Cosford.

The CCF seeks to develop self-reliance, initiative and leadership whilst giving an appreciation of the role of the services at the present day.
