Houses and Prefects


The excellent ethos and sense of community at Charleston Academy would not be possible without appointing these young people to the position of Prefect in their final years at school. Although our prefects undertake a range of duties and responsibilities across the school such as supervising the canteen, corridors and social areas, and assisting at formal events such as concerts and parents’ meetings, the main role of our Prefects is to act as Ambassadors. They do this for the school and community but also for themselves and our wider community of young people.

As young people begin to consider their future careers, whether through University or College, an apprenticeship or directly into employment, the inclusion in any application or reference of the prefect role adds value.
