NIA signs Armed Forces Covenant

Northampton International Academy’s Royal Navy Combined Cadet Force (CCF) have been officially presented with two new ceremonial banners.  

The banners were generously funded by Jim Wright of Wright Logistics Services and will be used in ceremonial duties such as school parades and public events.  

The school’s CCF has gone from strength to strength since being established in 2022, regularly taking part in events at the school and local civic events such as Northampton’s Remembrance Day parade. Students take part in regular training at the school and also access afloat training and adventurous training in activities such as sailing, paddle sports, canoeing, mountaineering, first aid and much more. 

The new contingent banner is believed to be the one first of its kind to bear the Tudor Crown featured in the new cypher of His Majesty King Charles III. It is embroidered by hand in gold bullion and coloured silks, upon a ground of Royal blue, sleeved in red, with edged gold metallic fringe and matching gold metallic cords and tassels. 

At the same time Northampton International Academy also pledged its support to the armed forces by signing the Armed Forces Covenant. 

The Armed Forces Covenant is a promise from the nation that those who serve or have served in the Armed Forces, and their families, are treated fairly. The Covenant is a national responsibility involving government, businesses, local authorities, charities, and the public. 

The school hosted an event in February where they joined four other organisations that made the same commitment.
