The first Sea Cadet unit was established in 1854 at Whitstable in Kent, created by communities wanting to give young people instruction on a naval theme. Traditionally old seafarers provided training while local businessmen funded the Unit Headquarters.

The tradition of community - based Sea Cadet Units continues today with 400 across the UK each with charitable status enabling them to raise funds to meet their running costs. All Units are members of the Sea Cadet Corps and are governed by the national charity MSSC - the Marine Society & Sea Cadets.

We work partnership with the Royal Navy under a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) and receive corporate support from commercial shipping companies and the Maritime sector. Our core purpose is to celebrate Britain's maritime heritage and contribute to its future development by supporting young people as Sea Cadets.

Burnham-on-sea and Highbridge Sea Cadets is always improving what it can offer to its Cadets and offer as much as we can to an always busy year!

We offer a variety of activities such as Ceremonial Training, Seamanship, Marine Engineering, Cook Stewards, Chartwork, Navigation, Rowing, Power Boating, Sailing, Windsurfing, Kayaking, Campcraft/Expedition Training through our Royal Marine and Duke of Edinburgh programmes and that's just to name but a few of what we can offer!

The Sea Cadet Corps as a whole offer Competitions in various disciplines/activities and as a Unit we endeavour to enter as many Competitions as we can!

As well as Unit Training Weekends that we offer, there are also weekend Courses available at different levels to offer a variety of training and qualifications.

As well as National Courses being offered at Royal Naval Establishments across the United Kingdom, to allow better training to be given to the cadets! National Courses allow cadets to go away, where they can gain so much confidence and make new friends from all over the U.K
