The school has a new senior prefect team for 2016 – Todd O, Jonty E, Katie J, Ellie M, Victoria S, Emily D, Rosie L, Will K, George P and Alfie H were all selected by students and staff.
The selection process involved a student vote and a teacher vote, with those high on the list interviewed by Headteacher Mrs Wainwright and Head of Sixth Form Mr Smith, to decide the new Head Boy and Girl.
Will and Rosie were chosen to represent the school as Head Boy and Girl.
Mr Smith remarked about the selection process: “We wanted it to be as fair as possible; the student and teacher votes are equally weighted and each year they make a good choice.”
Senior prefect member Todd O commented: “It’s a great privilege to have been selected; we’ve got a really great team this year and we’re all very much looking forward to playing our part.”
The Senior Prefect team is expected to attend and help out at all school events, represent the school and set an example to the younger students. Each year they also coordinate important fundraising events.
