Wilson's School CCF was established in 1910 as an Army Officer Training Corps on the original Camberwell site by a teacher, Captain Edmonds. It continued to flourish when the school moved to its present site in Wallington, Surrey, and is now a Combined Cadet Force with Army and RAF sections, the latter introduced in 1964.
The CCF trains young men and women to develop their qualities of leadership, self-reliance and initiative, and offers unique opportunities for outward-bound activities such as mountaineering, gliding, orienteering and parachuting.
All pupils in Years 9 and above are eligible to join this voluntary activity as part of either the Army or RAF contingent. There are weekly activity sessions and twice yearly camps. Several cadets are selected each year to attend advanced leadership courses.
In January 2014, Wilson's became the host school for a CCF partnership with Wallington High School for Girls. This is proving to be a very successful partnership with many of Wallington High School for Girls year 9 students joining the CCF and parading regularly at Wilson's.
