Here at Claremont High School the prefects work tirelessly to support the school. Our prefects get actively involved in a wide range of exciting projects which enable them to demonstrate their leadership skills. These projects range from a radio station, to homework club, guides at open evenings, games clubs, charity work, whole school photo shoot for our prospectus, lunch duties and a prefect residential trip once a year.
I am incredibly proud of the work that our prefects do and the values they demonstrate every day. They work hard and as such can be seen wearing the special 'prefect tie'.
