Royal Grammar School

Newcastle

    All students are encouraged to become prefects when they join the Upper Sixth and the vast majority are keen to take on this role, an opportunity to help shape the direction of the school and give something back to the RGS community. A team of a dozen or so senior prefects are nominated by their peers and staff members to take on additional roles and responsibilities and two senior prefects are chosen to become Head Boy and Head Girl.

    Prefects and senior prefects play an important role at RGS events, acting as ambassadors for the school, as well as being actively involved with academic departments, clubs, school assemblies and school council meetings. Being a prefect is a rewarding experience and gives Upper Sixth students the opportunity to act as a role model to their fellow students.
