Leadership

The Prefects represent the voice of the Roedean student body.  Throughout the school, girls are encouraged to take responsibility and to act as role-models to others with the school community – they are proactive in ensuring that Roedean is a happy and supportive environment.

In all year-groups, each tutor-group has Form and Charity Representatives, who have a role to play on School Council and whenever there are charity events taking place.  This means that girls from the youngest to the oldest have a voice and a part to play in the day-to-day running of the school.

The Prefect Body

The Prefect team plays a prominent role in school life.  Following ‘hustings’ in front of the entire school, the Prefects are elected by a combination of votes from every girl in the school and those from members of staff; the Senior Prefects are then interviewed by the Headmaster and Senior Team, before the Head Girls and Deputy Heads of School are appointed. The body of Senior Prefects runs the School Council and acts as the conduit between the senior staff and the students.

Leadership Roles

The girls also lead House competitions, such as inter-house sporting competitions, and House Plays, House Dance, and House Music, which they direct, choreograph, and rehearse themselves.

Some of the senior girls choose to be peer listeners, for which they receive targeted training, and they are accessible to support anyone in school who wants to talk to a friendly face.  Not only does this help others, but it also develops important skills in the listener, such as discretion, patience, and compassion.
