Head Boy and Head Girl
Each year, the Academy appoints a Head Boy and Head Girl from our Sixth Form. The Head Boy and Head Girl act as student representatives and work alongside our staff and Prefect team on the various events that take place throughout the year.
The Academy appoints six Senior Prefects from Year 11 and twelve Senior Prefects from our Sixth Form. The role of the Senior Prefects is to support our Prefects in their daily duties and to act as a liaison between the Prefect team and our Senior Leadership Team (SLT).
Our Prefect Team plays an important role in leading three key areas in the Academy:
- Reading mentors
- Classroom standards
- Daily Notices
- Canteen duty
- Inclusion / New starters
- Around the building duties
- Honour Court
- Tour guides
- Student 'Report'
Activity supervision (at Break and Lunch)
Promotion (of clubs and events)
The Academy appoints 60 Prefects each year. Two are selected from each year group in each of our six Houses.
In addition to the benefits students would gain from mentioning their role as a Prefect in university and job applications, our prefects also benefit from bespoke uniform (see our Prefect ties below) and special consideration for Student Leadership.
