The King’s School Grantham have recently returned from their Summer Camp in Crowborough, East Sussex.

49 Cadets together with their staff have spent a challenging week under-going Exercise Collegiate Diamond 2014 supervised by the Regular Army, Cadet Training Team, Army Cadet Force and Combined Cadet Force Instructors.

The Cadets undertook command tasks, survival, and first Aid training, together with skill at arms, target shooting, an excellent laser quest activity, paintballing and archery, followed by a field training exercise.

The Cadets spent four challenging days taking part in activities, preparing themselves for the culmination of the week, the School Competitions in which 10 schools took part, together with a team of Canadians over in the UK on their exchange visit.

The competitions were of a challenging nature, based on the weeks training activities with other tasks as a surprise, one proved to be a more difficult activity for all, namely ‘The Cube’.

After the scores on the doors were added together the results were announced:

The King’s School achieved two second prizes in the Navigation and the Quiz, and two third prizes in skill at arms and first aid.

Finally the overall result was announced, the overall winning school was: The King’s School Grantham, 49 Brigade.

The trophy was presented to The King’s School Grantham by Colonel Ingrid Rolland, Deputy Commander 2 South East Brigade.

What a wonderful end to the years training at School, making all the evening and week end activities for the cadets so worth- while.

The CCF at The King’s School Grantham is open to students in year nine.
