Whether at sea or on land, the Sea Cadets offers young people across the UK amazing opportunities for personal development – by learning new skills and working in teams – we offer an environment where young people find new confidence and inspiration.
Established in 1856 the Sea Cadets was created by communities wanting to give young people instruction on a naval theme. Traditionally old seafarers provided training while local businessmen funded the unit building.
Today, 14,000 young people based in 400 units in towns, cities and ports across the UK are challenging themselves and developing new skills, like sailing, boating and rock climbing – supported by 9,000 volunteers.
The ethos and traditions of the Royal Navy are at the heart of the Sea Cadets, who are guided by these values:
Respect: To appreciate and be considerate to others.
Loyalty: To be faithful to all who invest in me.
Self-discipline: To do what I must.
Commitment: To do what I say I will.
Honesty and Integrity: To tell the truth and be a good person.
Sandwell Sea Cadets are based here, at Ormiston Forge Academy. They have their own, independent base and work with our students.
