Hurst's Combined Cadet Force (CCF) encompasses the Royal Navy, Army and Air Force divisions.
Taking part in the CCF promotes personal responsibility, leadership and self-discipline. It is compulsory for all Remove (Year 10) students to take part in one of the CCF divisions, and is then optional in subsequent years up to the Sixth Form.
Royal Navy Section
The Royal Navy Section involves adventurous training in diving, field days, leadership skills and can include qualification courses for those cadets in the lower sixth form.
The Army Section involves students taking part in a wide range of skills including drill, field craft and first aid training.
Royal Air Force Section
The Royal Air Force section is an exciting and challenging experience for those students interested in aviation and flying.
The Hurst CCF is one of 260 school contingents and is an educational partnership between the college and the Ministry of Defence. We are proud of our CCF which is one of the oldest in the country. Hurst College was one of the first six schools in England to found a corporation in 1860, and the only public school corporation in Sussex for 36 years.
