Royal Military Academy Sandhurst

The Royal Military Academy Sandhurst (RMAS) is where all officers in the British Army are trained to take on the responsibility of leading their fellow soldiers. During training, all officer cadets learn to live by the academy’s motto: ‘Serve to Lead’.

The role of the RMAS is to prepare potential officers for the responsibility of leading their fellow soldiers, and to instil in them the core values of the British Army.
