A Prefect at Beeston Hall School is someone who is a role model, someone who represents the characteristics that we expect Beestonians to have.
They need to be seen to be doing the right thing and be someone that gains the respect of all, whilst being approachable and caring. Prefects are the school’s ambassadors who are used by the Headmaster for various events. They have duties and responsibilities through the week, as well as still being pupils who are here to learn. So, being a Prefect is a tough but rewarding position to hold. The prefects have regular meetings with Mr Hammond and also with the Headmaster to review the term.

The School Council meets several times each term to discuss the views of the classes, concerns or suggestions. This year they have met to discuss lunches, looked at our school uniform policy, and discussed whether to have pudding with supper. The purpose of this is to listen to pupils and promote ideas about democracy.
Every September, a Chairperson, Vice Chairperson and Secretary are elected from Year 8. These three children stay on the council all year along with a representative from each class, who are elected termly by their class as Form Captain.
