Student Leadership

At St. Mary’s we are fully committed to furthering the leadership skills of our young people.

Pupils have many opportunities to become leaders during their time at the school and are encouraged to become Senior Prefects in Year 13 to exercise these skills. To be considered for the Senior Team in Year 14, pupils must have been a Senior Prefect during Year 13.

  • Pupil Support Prefect

SENIOR TEAM 2022-2023 

The Senior Team comprises of the Head Boy and Head Girl along with their deputies. Pupils are nominated for those roles by their peers and teaching staff and are selected by an interview process. These pupils act as role models for other pupils and promote the ethos of the school. They represent the school and student body at events both inside and outside the school and are often called upon to give key presentations about the school.
