Pupil Leadership and Voice

There are many opportunities at Haileybury for leadership in all year groups and pupils are encouraged to take on responsibility and challenge in order to grow as people, and also to give something back to the community.

The school leaders are known as College Prefects (CPs) appointed by the Master and safeguarding trained, they help with the day to day running of the school and committees of which there are many, in order to engage the pupils fully in the decision processes of the school. In addition to the Heads of School and Deputy Heads of School, current CP posts include:

  • Head of House
  • Academic, Sport, Arts, Environment
  • Peer Support & Wellbeing
  • Lower School
  • Activities & Events
  • Admissions & Marketing
  • International.

Pupil voice is extremely important and there are many opportunities for pupils to have their say: Food committee, Senate, Pupil surveys, in house committees and whole school committees, regular meetings of the CPs with the Master, Deputy Master, and Head of Sixth Form. House Prefects are appointed to help in the day to day running of the house under the pupil Head of House. There is also a comprehensive system of mentors for new pupils, backed up by the Peer Support and Wellbeing CPs and overseen by the Deputy Master, Chaplain and Head of Wellbeing.
