We are delighted to share the news that two of our students have received prestigious honours, following on from last year’s Combined Cadet Force (CCF) successes.

Upper Sixth cadets, Jack and Max, have been named ‘Master Cadets’ – the highest award that a cadet can receive, following a stringent application and interview process.

These latest accolades follow last year’s ‘hat-trick’, when OBs Hamish McAllister, Teddy Hamilton and Kieran Bleasby achieved Master Cadet status – for the first time in School history – with all three later becoming Lord Lieutenant Cadets.

Master Cadet status is typically only awarded to a handful of cadets each year, on completion of the Master Cadet course.

The Cadet training centre at Frimley approved Barney’s three nominations and RSM Jack and RAF lead Max were selected to attend the final interview stage. Immaculately turned out in their appearance, both cadets interviewed exceptionally well.

Major Caroline Connor, Head of Barney’s CCF, said: “I am absolutely delighted for both Jack and Max, whose achievements are thoroughly deserved. Barney’s CCF has continued to grow and we are proud to be one of the North’s largest CCF contingents.

“To have five Master Cadets in two years is unprecedented for our contingent and an amazing achievement for Barney. These latest successes are testament to the hard work and dedication of our staff and volunteers, who continually go above and beyond for our cadets.”
