What is a prefect?
Prefects take on a form of guidance and a leadership role within the student body of the academy. They will assist with daily duties and whole school events. They are expected to become role models for their peers, arriving to school on time, wearing their uniform correctly and acting in a way that other students should aspire to. There is no single quality (or combination of qualities) that determines a good prefect. Everyone brings different qualities to the position and the success of the team is based upon just that. This is an important role within our academy and any prefect not maintaining the high standards expected may result in them being withdrawn from their position.
How are prefects selected?
All students in Year 10 receive information on the process in an assembly and are actively invited to apply for the position of prefect from the beginning of June. The names of successful applicants go forward to all teaching staff for recommendations before individual interviews are held. A panel then meet to agree on the final selection. Attendance, punctuality, attitudes to learning and personal qualities will also be considered in the final selection.
