The Prefect System, both Primary and Secondary, allows students to demonstrate their maturity and sense of responsibility. Uplands Prefects are role-models for the rest of the student body and embody the school’ ethos to the highest standard. The ability to lead and inspire is an expectation of all Prefects.
Candidates for Prefect responsibilities are carefully selected by faculty and their peers. They must be responsible, diligent, hardworking, and ready to represent the school at any given time. The positions require forward-thinking, confident individuals who will introduce new ideas to the school and foster a positive ethos. Prefects act as a link between teachers and students.
Responsibilities include; Bringing together the student leadership teams, supervising younger pupils at break and lunchtimes, guiding visitors around the school, and helping out at school events, such as Parents’ Evenings and Sports Days. The Secondary Prefects coordinate and lead school assemblies.
Secondary Prefects portfolios include Head Students, Primary Liaison, Student Relations, Sport and Recreation, Performing and Visual Arts, and Public Relations. These roles provide a chance to work with other leadership groups coordinating and organising events.
Senior Prefects commence their tenure from the beginning of Term 3, Year 12 and hold their post until the beginning of Term 3 in Year 13.
