RAF school celebrates anniversary.
Formerly known as the School of Fighter Control, it was originally based at RAF West Drayton in Middlesex and moved to Boulmer in 1990.
The school is a training establishment and teaches various courses for new recruits, officers and airmen.
It caters for all three services and provides pre-deployment training for Afghanistan.
Courses are also open to NATO and other foreign military personnel.
In the last year, a record amount of service personnel have qualified as identification officers.
An awards ceremony was recently held at the base, hosted by station commander, group captain Phil Cox.
Awards were presented by air commodore Malcolm Crayford.
He said: "It is a huge privilege to be invited to present these awards and to recognise the success of the school and those who qualified as aerospace battle managers and aerospace systems operators in the last training year."
