Medway Victory Sea Cadets

Medway Victory Sea Cadets

Medway Victory Sea Cadets operate within the Thinking Schools Academy Trust family.

Welcome to a different kind of adventure, launching young people for life today.

Medway Victory Sea Cadets was set up in 2018. This unit is available to all students at The Victory Academy and Holcombe Grammar School. At present, we have both Year 7 and Year 8 students who are now learning and experiencing the Sea Cadet Corps and all that it offers.

At Medway Victory we aim to give young people an experience that will help them grow into the individuals they want to be in a safe and friendly environment. Through various activities and adventures, we learn teamwork, respect, loyalty, self-confidence, commitment, self-discipline, honesty and how to be the best version of ourselves. Activities include: Sailing, canoeing, rowing, archery, shooting, camping, and adventurous training including expedition training. We learn Drill, armed drill and Piping, seamanship, Music such as, drumming, marching band also first aid, engineering, catering and stewarding. Many of these can lead to a BTEC qualification equivalent to five GCSEs. Training will lead to becoming a fully-fledged cadet, with the sea cadet promise: “I promise to serve my God my Queen, My Country and the Sea Cadet Corps and to obey the orders of my superior Officers. I will be proud of my uniform and be smart and seaman like in wearing it and always do my duty.”

Cadets are expected to regularly attend the unit on Mondays 1800-2000 at The Victory Academy in smart, tidy uniform, and to respect all the volunteer staff whilst attending and learning. Many external courses are available to cadets and promotion through the ranks to become a Petty Officer Cadet.

We also offer a great path for adult volunteers and welcome people who have time to commit to the Unit on a regular basis or if you have Sea Cadet experience or qualifications in any of the above activities we would love to hear from you. As our Unit grows we also require more adult volunteers.
