Who can become a Prefect?

Becoming a Prefect is an honour to which students should aspire. Prefects are role models and play a major part in shaping the positive image of The Sutton Academy within the local community.

The role of a Prefect is an important one and, if chosen, you will be accepting a position of considerable responsibility. You should be a highly motivated individual with a flexible, supportive and considerate approach to others and who likes working as part of a team. You will also be able to demonstrate good communication and organisational skills build excellent working relationships with staff and have good time management skills. If you are a student with an excellent record of behaviour, attendance and punctuality then you are a suitable candidate.

This is an exciting opportunity to develop your leadership skills and play an active part in the life of the academy, helping us deliver our values and aims. You will have the opportunity to become involved in a wide range of activities which will enable you to provide valuable service for our academy community. This is a unique experience that you can use in your applications to higher or further education, or when applying for employment.
