College cadets put through their paces at HMS CollingwoodStaff from the Royal Naval Leadership Academy based at HMS Collingwood put a group of Frome College students to the test at a recent ‘taster session’. The session introduced the students, all from years 9 and 10, to some of the opportunities available in the Combined Cadet Force. The college had introduced the scheme in October 2019 and it had grown into a successful venture. Unfortunately, activities then had to be curtailed due to the pandemic and, with cadets graduating from the college, the programme has had to be restarted. However, the take-up for this first session at HMS Collingwood was encouraging and 13 students enjoyed learning new skills both on the low-ropes course and, later, through a unique hands-on insight into the traditional Naval Field Gun competition.bit.ly/3EVKJYp ...
