The Programme

Junior Section boys work on a badge scheme which is based on five areas; body, mind, spirit, community and creativity. The programme provides challenges, adventure and opportunities to learn and grow. The fun and engaging programme enables the children to work in a team and take more responsibility.
Juniors may also get the opportunity to go on camps and residential trips, and for some this will be their first night away from home. Throughout their time in Anchor Section, children can gain badges and recognition for their participation in the programme.

The Uniform

Junior Section boys are expected to wear their uniforms each week. This comprises of a blue polo shirt and royal blue sweatshirt. Members are expected to wear school trousers and shoes as part of their footwear, and recommended to bring trainers to participate in the games sessions.
