The position of Prefect is a position of responsibility and one which provides an important connection between pupils and staff.

Becoming a Prefect is a widely held aspiration at Saint Nicholas and the position forms a valuable part of a pupil’s personal development, bringing home the important link between authority and responsibility. Prefects are a tremendous help to the school and play a particularly important role in mentoring younger pupils.

The application process for the role of Prefect starts in Year 10. Pupils are invited to write a letter of application to the Headmaster and are interviewed to assess their suitability for the role.
