In November, over 50 Year 10 BWSfB students began the process of applying for our inaugural school prefects. Students had to complete application forms detailing why they would be suitable for the role and their relevant experience, as well as seeing a reference from a member of staff. Shortlisted students were then interviewed by members of the Leadership team and School governors before 26 successful prefects were appointed. The calibre of applicant was incredibly high and boys demonstrated successful leadership qualities including confidence and integrity.
In January, students took part in a day of training with sessions on aspects of leadership such as communication, working as a team and understanding boundaries. Later that day, an Inauguration ceremony was held to celebrate the beginning of their role. Parents and grandparents were in attendance to join the celebration and we heard our first speech from Head Boys Luke and Rupert.
Students will hold their role from January to December 2022 – we wish them success on their adventure!
