RAF Squadron Leader Gavin Calls on Repton

This afternoon RAF Squadron Leader Mal Gavin visited Repton School to talk to Repton RAF cadets about the variety of careers available in the RAF. Squadron Leader Gavin also spoke individually to cadets about their specific abilities, helping pupils to identify the best route to take when applying to the RAF.

 

One pupil asked Squadron Leader Gavin what the fitness requirements would be to join the RAF. The answer? 35 sit ups in 1 minute, 35 press ups in 1 minute and either Level 9 on the bleep test or 1.5 miles in 11 minutes 10 seconds. As the RAF cadets left the talk they were going to see how close they could get to the RAF fitness requirements!
