Grace Academy Platoon is a closed platoon in Minden Company, Warwickshire ACF and we have been open since January 2014. Our detachment has so far won two silver awards. We have seen one cadet leave us to join the RAF and he has since successfully passed both his basic and trade training.
Cadets have taken part in parades, sports, shooting competitions, fund raising activities and community activities. Our cadets have represented the Company, County and some have even got through to National competitions in swimming and Athletics. We are the newest Platoon in our County but our cadets represent us in all competitions.
2017 should see our first D of E passes and our first BTEC passes.
Students from Grace Academy can join us from Year 8 and they can remain with us until they are 18. There are opportunities to attend weekend camps for training and testing and cadets can also attend Annual Camp – one week away with our County.
We parade on a Monday and Thursday after school from 16.00-18.00hs here at Grace. With us here they learn; drill, turnout, military knowledge, skill at arms, shooting, field craft, navigation, expedition training, PT, first aid and cadet in the community.
