The Prefect System
At the end of the Autumn Term in Year 12:
Head Student and student leadership team are nominated by peers and school staff and selected by interview.
The senior student leadership team lead the student council process that runs every half term, they present to parents at open evenings, meet with the Co-Headteachers regularly and create, organise and deliver the whole school end of term assemblies.
A team of sixteen senior House prefects are selected through an interview process to lead the House system alongside the Heads of House.
Their role is to promote the House ethos, charity events and to plan for House competitions. They attend and contribute to senior prefects and House meetings, meet regularly with the Form Captains in each form from Year 7 to 11 and help organise House assemblies in liaison with the Head of House.
Heads of Department select one or two students to be their subject prefects. The role of the subject prefect is to lead a club, take assemblies promoting the subject, to share their passion for the subject at open evenings and to help organise competitions and events throughout the year.
We want our sixth form students to embrace and contribute to the life of the school, both through their learning and by taking part in our extensive range of enrichment and leadership activities.
Our students really do gain so much from these opportunities – they feel good for taking part, helping others and they develop a sense of gratitude, humility and stoicism.
