Prefects play an important role in the daily life of the school.


All Year 11 students have the opportunity to put themselves forward as potential prefects.


Prefects provide supervision at lunchtimes at various locations around school,  help as Sports Leaders and run the Peace Lounge.


Prefects wear a prefect badge at all times.  Year 11 relinquish their duties after Easter, allowing them to prepare fully for their final GCSE examinationa and from Easter up until July, Year 10 students take over their duties.
