We embrace opportunities for student leadership.  Our Year 11 students are invited to apply for the role of prefect, which is a well respected and prestigious position in the school community.  Prospective prefects have to go through a rigorous application process involving a letter of application, interview and presentation on the role of the prefect in school.  Prefects are expected to fulfil a range of duties including duties around the school, leading on the organisation of the Year 11 prom, yearbook and hoody, attendance at parents’ evenings and  they also participate in the interview process for new members of staff.  Of course, probably the most important part of being a prefect is being a role model for other pupils.  Prefects wear a different tie so they are clearly identifiable from the rest of the school
