Prefects

These are senior pupils whose responsibilities and method of selection vary from school to school. Some are chosen by the staff and Head, maybe after consultation with pupils; others are elected. In a few cases, there is a formal selection process involving an application and interview, like applying for a job. Occasionally it involves leadership training. It is regarded as an honour, can provide useful experience and build a sense of responsibility − and, of course, looks good on a cv.
