Whilst the roles of School Prefects and House Captains are attained in Upper Sixth, students are also given responsibilities during their earlier Senior School years.
From Year 7, and throughout their time at Senior School, students are elected as Form Captains and Deputies. New Captains are elected by their peers each term, their badges are assigned by the Headmistress and they are given a job description to follow, their main task being to assist their Form Tutor in the smooth running of the Form.
In addition, Year 8 students act as ‘buddies’ for incoming Year 7 students. Each Year 8 student is assigned a new student, who will be in the same school House. They introduce themselves by sending an individual letter of welcome during the Summer Term before the new Year 7’s start and then ‘watch out for’ and offer support during their Year 7’s first year at Senior School.
