Prefects are chosen to develop a range of Student Leadership ventures over the coming academic year for the benefit of all students at the Academy. The quality of each Student Leader in this cohort is extremely high, as each student has been through a rigorous series of tests to ensure that the right person has been selected for the exciting but challenging jobs ahead, with a waiting list of a similar number in the wings, such was the competitive nature of the enterprise.
We are sure all of the Prefects will be highly successful in leading these ventures and will leave no stone unturned in developing an even wider range of opportunities for all, ensuring Harris Academy Purley has a vibrant and dynamic student driven range of programmes at its core.
Head Boy & Head Girl
To be successful, applicants needed to impress a body of students in an initial set of interviews lead by the previous year’s Head Boy and Head Girl. A shortlist of applicants will then go on to have meetings with senior members of staff, before finalists are put forward to school-wide vote.
Sixth Form Prefect Team
Our Sixth Form Head Boy and Sixth Form Head Girl work alongside Sixth Form Prefects on a range of roles and responsibilities around the Academy. This include assisting staff, running mentoring sessions for lower school students and organising charity and enterprise events throughout the year.
