At Fir Vale School we strive to provide our pupils with experiences that allow them to develop valuable leadership skills, play a key part in day-to-day running of the school and take on challenging responsibilities. All Y11 pupils are invited to apply for the prestigious role of School Prefect. If successful they receive leadership training and the opportunity to gain an accredited qualification in Student Leadership through SSAT.
Our Prefect Team plan fundraising opportunities for worthy causes, lead their own meetings, carry out daily duties to support the school and represent the school at events throughout the year.
In addition, Prefects can focus on their own areas for development and learn new skills. Many of our Prefects provide valuable translation skills for our families at events and meetings.
From within the Prefect Team a Head Boy, Head Girl and two Deputies are elected. These prestigious positions require leadership of the wider team and pupils to report back to our Governing Body and Senior Leaders.
