Leadership Opportunities

Responsibilities

The Head Girl Team, comprising the Head Girl, two Deputies and several Senior Prefects, is elected in January of the Lower Sixth. Every girl is encouraged to outline her aims for the school at the Hustings before votes are cast. House Captains are elected at the same time and are vital in fostering a school spirit and inter form competition.  The Head Girl meets with the Headmistress every week and she and her deputies chair the School Council giving the Sixth Form a powerful voice in the management and direction of the school.

  • Mentor younger years as part of the Big Sister programme
