Wilson's School "clearly exceptional"
THE HEAD AND MAJOR BURTON were delighted to receive the following report fom Lt Col Mike Cornwell, now the Commanding Officer of 2nd Battalion Princess of Wales Royal Regiment, last week.
"I conducted the biennial review of Wilson's School CCF on Wednesday 2 April 2014 … From the outset, I was made to feel very welcome … If the mark of a good school is pupil attitude, Wilson's is clearly exceptional. The cadets, to a child, were polite, confident and hugely enthusiastic. During the inspection and the tour of training stands, which was led exceptionally well by the cadet RSM, I took the opportunity to talk to as many individuals and groups as possible. The overwhelming impression was of a body of happy, articulate cadets, with a real sense of pride in belonging, both to the school and to the CCF. I made that point when I addressed them as a body, and have written separately to the Headmaster in the same vein. Being a State School, the CCF is entirely composed of volunteers and the large numbers speak volumes, as does the overwhelming impression that the CCF is a key part of the fabric of the school.
Overall, Wilson's School CCF is clearly thriving, is absolutely run in the right spirit and I have no concerns whatsoever. It was a real pleasure to see them."
