The broad function of the Combined Cadet Force (CCF) is that of a youth movement sponsored by Her Majesty's Armed Forces, to provide a challenging environment in Brompton Academy so that students may develop power of Leadership by means of opportunities and training to promote self-reliance, responsibility, resourcefulness, endurance, perseverance and a sense of service to the community.

Students in the CCF are known as Cadets and whilst they undertake military training, the emphasis is on teamwork, leadership, development and enjoyment.

Cadets can join the CCF from Year 8, students must be aged 12 and above.  Topics that will be covered are foot drill, first aid, map reading, skill at arms (weapon training and shooting) self-reliance and fieldcraft as well as adventure training.

Mandatory training will take place on Tuesdays, 3.15pm - 4.45pm.  It is proposed that there will be one weekend's training per term. Throughout the training year there will be training days and ranges.  All the training is progressive and culminates in a Summer Camp.
