We are pleased to announce the appointment of our twelve new Prefects at Northampton Academy.
Year 11 students were recently invited to apply for this position and we had a great response, with over forty applicants for the twelve positions available. Each application was assessed and twenty-two students were shortlisted. The final twenty-two went through a rigorous selection process including an interview, in which they had some challenging questions put to them.
The final twelve were selected and their names announced in assembly.
Dilshan, Chido, Adrian, Chloe, Benjamin, Emily, Henry, Elaina, Tobi, Patricia, Billy and Stephanie.
The Prefects will each be on duty for one day per week, assisting the duty staff in the courtyard at lunch and break time and will be identified by their new purple ties. Prefects will be able to award a number of 'Praise Points' to their peers as they see fit and they will have the privilege of joining the front of the lunch queues.
They will act as role models for other students and will be ambassadors for the Academy and will be expected to attend and assist at school events when necessary.
