The visit took place on Thursday 14 and Friday 15 December, coinciding with the Sovereign’s Parade hosted by Prince Harry who inspected the Army’s newest batch of officer recruits graduating from the prestigious military academy.
For the cadets it was an opportunity to meet and talk with serving officer cadets and to gather information about the Academy to help them make informed future career choices.
Beginning their visit on Thursday, the cadets were given a tour of the Academy and a chance to witness military life at a training establishment.
The cadets also took part in Op Reflect activities during their visit to the Chapel. The Bedford Modern School CCF cadets identified seven former pupils of their school on the WW1 Roll of Honour that were trained at Sandhurst pre-war. The students managed to track down six of the seven names while in the Chapel.
