The Prefect Team
Students in Year 12 and Year 13 have the opportunity to become part of a dynamic Sixth Form prefect team. Subject prefects work closely with their chosen department and in addition play a vital day to day role in the efficient running of the school. The senior prefect team, consisting of Head Boy, Head Girl, Deputy Head Boy, Deputy Head Girl and Senior Prefects, co-ordinate the work of subject prefects and middle school prefects. In addition to this they set the agenda for the school's main charity fundraising work with each new team selecting two charities for the duration of their term of office. They have been incredibly successful in this area raising thousands of pounds for their chosen charities each year. The prefect team also have the opportunity to set out and implement other aims, for example, in the present academic year they have extended their impact on one of their chosen charities for the mental health of young people. They have overseen the implementation of a safe place for students in the school that they run. They have had a positive impact for younger students. Last year, they organised the training for, and planned the creation of an academic peer mentoring system.
