JOINING AS A CADET
You can join as a cadet from the September when you start in the school academic Year 8, you no longer need to wait until your 13th birthday, and up to your 17th Birthday. The start age has been brought into line with the school year to enable a number of cadets to join at the same time which makes it easier from a squadron training program and allows friends wishing to all join to do so together.
First thing to do is to make contact with the Squadron. This is easily done by clicking on Register to Join link at the bottom of this page which will take you to a secure form. You can ring the Squadron during normal parade times (Mon & Fri 7.15-9.00pm) on 01752 473781 (if there is no reply please leave your name and number so we can get back to you)
Once you have made initial contact we will arrange for you to visit the Squadron. This is ideally, but not essential, with a parent or guardian so that they can be shown around and have opportunity to ask any questions they may have. During your visit you will have explained what the Royal Air Force Air Cadet organisation has to offer and what is expected from their members. After any questions have been answered and you have been shown around you will have the opportunity to stay for the remainder of the evening. You will be allocated a mentor to show you what to do at each part of the evening - do not worry you will not be expected to be expert straight away, you will be shown what you need to do, Your parents will, if not already completed, be advised how to complete and submit the parent consent forms to allow you to join the Squadron and participate in activities. Once we have received your joining forms you will officially become a Royal Air Force Junior Air Cadet, you will receive a welcome email with a link to access your Cadet Portal. As soon as you have completed some training you will be enrolled and issued with your uniform and service record book.
