We are delighted to introduce the Student Leadership Team for 2015/16 The Prefects photographed above; all successfully gained their roles as Prefects after a rigorous interview process. Congratulations go to our newly appointed Head Girl Zia Smith and Head Boy Lucas Coppin.
The prefects are a selected group of students in Year 11 who represent the personal best values of Broadoak College. As well as excellent attendance, punctuality and attitude to learning, prefects undergo a rigorous application process, including a letter of application with supporting statements from peers and teachers, and an interview with the Headteacher.
Students who are selected as prefects receive an afternoon training session, a different tie, and a pin badge to enable students to recognise them around the school. Prefects act as tour guides on Open Evening and throughout the year, support staff in break and lunchtime supervision, and assist in organising the school prom and leavers' books and hoodies for the year group. This year they have also organised fundraising events to help reduce the cost of these end of year activities, to ensure the whole year group can be included.
The Head Boy and Head Girl are selected from the Prefects and have to give a presentation to staff and students about why they would be suitable for the role. The Head Boy and Girl will speak to students in assemblies, give a presentation at Open Evening, and sit on the school council.
