Katie rises through the RAF ranks
13 July 2022
Well done to our Year 10 pupil Katie who has risen through the ranks to become a Corporal in the RAF Air Cadets.
Katie has been a member of the Preston-based RAF Air Cadets for three years, with all her family involved.
“I had to prove I could be a leader so I took over drills and so on when the other NCOs (Cadet Non-Commissioned Officers) were doing their GCSEs. I made the step up and it worked well.
“I go twice a week and now I am leading people of my own age which is a bit strange but I am proud to be a Corporal.
“I also go on camps at weekend which I enjoy.
“School work can all get a bit stressful so I find this a release.
“I want to go into aerospace and be an engineer and the Cadets is a hobby but it also gives me a valuable insight into other aspects of life.”
