How did they become part of the Junior leadership team?

The candidates put their names forward to join the team and then they have one week to canvass voters. The candidates then make a short presentation in an assembly and the students make a vote based on these.

Want to be a part of it?

The Elections for the 2015-16 School year will take place in April/May 2015.  Year 12/13 students are invited to apply for the position of senior prefect in September.  Applicants are interviewed by Mr Leadbetter and the Headteacher. In return the student gains significant leadership experience and develop all round interpersonal skills that will support their progression to University and ultimately into employment.  The senior prefects are also entitled to a meal on their duty days and receive a monthly payment (based on the number of duty days they undertake).

Year 11 Prefects

New year 11 students are also invited to apply for the position of prefect in September of each year. Applicants are interviewed by Mr Leadbetter and another member of the leadership team. Successful year 11 students can have a free school meal each day they carry out a duty.
