Royal Marines Ethos

The Royal Marines Section is led by former Royal Marine, Major Steve King RMR with support from Capt Pete Belfield RMR and the RM training team. The section has enjoyed great success in the national annual inter-schools Sir Steuart Pringle Trophy, winning six times and coming second twice in the last eight years. This is a prestigious team event involving various stances such as section attacks, drill, first aid scenarios and leadership tasks at the RM base at Lympstone.
