Khalsa CCF

1st Saragarhi Company

Khalsa Combined Cadet Force Unit

The tradition of cadet units in schools goes back over 150 years to the 1850s. In 1948, the Combined Cadet Force was formed, covering cadets from all three Services.

Today the Combined Cadet Force contingents are very different to those early groups of young people. Although they are still based on the ethos of the Armed Forces - their focus is on helping young people to develop and reach their full potential by providing challenging, active, adventurous and fun activities.

The Khalsa 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. We have an educational partnership between the school, the Ministry of Defence and the Army.

The organisation, run by committed and passionate volunteers within schools, provides young people with life-changing opportunities that few other extra-curricular activities can come close to competing with. Other Schools report that their cadet units help their students' confidence, leadership and teamwork to come on in leaps and bounds.

Our Khalsa CCF is run by Warrant Officer Seb Miller who is based at the school along with other staff volunteers. Our CCF has a parent regiment, the Windsor based Coldstream Guards, the oldest continuously serving regiment in the British Army (1650), and is well known for its high-profile ceremonial duties – but it’s an infantry unit first and foremost, with a hard-won reputation as an elite fighting force.
