Buxton Community School

Head Boy & Head Girl 2018

Buxton Community School appoints a team of Prefects each year to undertake various roles and responsibilities around the school, both during the school day and at extra-curricular events. This is a perfect role for students in Year 11 who want to take on extra responsibility, extend their experience and provide themselves with opportunities which will support their applications to 6th form, college, university and to work. There is an expectation that the Prefect team are identifiable around the school by wearing a prefect badge and different coloured tie.

We expect our prefects to be role models for other students. They set the example by being honest, approachable and reliable. As leaders within the school they must lead by example by committing to do their best for themselves and the school.

The application process requires students to write a letter explaining the personal skills and qualities they can demonstrate which would enable them to fulfil the role. Students are then selected for an interview with staff where they have the opportunity to share how they have demonstrated these  skills and qualities both inside and outside of school. From this process a team of 24 students are selected of which eight students are selected as Senior prefects.

The Head boy and Deputy Head boy and Head Girl and Deputy Head girl are selected from the team of eight Senior Prefects by the prefect team and members of staff within school.

Details to follow in September of the new appointments.
