All School News | 28.04.2022

On the evening of 26th April our two senior RAF Section cadets, Vicki and Curtis delivered a presentation in response to a Commonwealth War Graves Commission project, the presentation was about Old Ratcliffian Paul Baillon who was a Spitfire Pilot shot down during the Battle of Britain.

The project served to celebrate a part of Ratcliffe College’s rich, varied, and fascinating history which was particularly relevant in the schools 175th anniversay year.

Both Vicki and Curtis worked incredibly hard on the research and presentation and Meghan Kelleher from the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, pictured with our senior cadets was extremely impressed saying both had delivered “a brilliant presentation”.

Present in the audience were the Headmaster, representation from the school Governors, representatives from the RAF Air Cadet organisation, parents, and senior school staff.

Our congratulations to both Vicky and Curtis on an exceptional project, well done, and our thanks to all those who attended.
