From the moment students join The Magna Carta School, we encourage them to aspire towards becoming a prefect, and at the end of every academic year, Year 10 students are given the opportunity to apply to join the prefect body.
Prefects are selected on the basis of reflecting the key values of the school. We expect applicants to have very high attendance with exemplary punctuality, exceptional behaviour records and the highest standards of uniform. Similarly, their conduct in and around the school must be beyond reproach.
We ask prefects to represent the school in many ways, including escorting visitors on tours of the site on open evening, for example, and parents frequently comment that they are a credit to the school. Prefects also provide invaluable support to younger students in particular, through their roles supporting staff on duty at breaktime and lunchtime, and helping to guide new students through the induction process.
Students also have the opportunity to apply for the Head Boy and Head Girl position.
