Prefects (purple tie)
Becoming a Prefect is one of the highest student leadership positions within Northampton Academy. Prefects are selected after going through a rigorous application process which is open to Year 10 students only. Prefects are appointed following applications and interviews with the Vice Principal and are recognised by their purple ties.
Prefects have a range of responsibilities ranging from assisting with lunchtime duty, supporting at key events throughout the year and mentoring other students within the school. They help to support positive behaviour around the school and are seen as role models in their everyday interactions.

The Director of Key Stage 4 coordinates the Prefects and holds regular meetings with them.
