Pupils who join the CCF at Bredon School take part in many activities during the weekly training sessions including:
- Skill at Arms
- First Aid
- Bush craft
- Camouflage and concealment
- Patrol Techniques

The CCF also performs duties at the School’s annual Remembrance Service and as part of the Tewkesbury Town Remembrance Parade.
