Only a relative handful of our students receive the rewards of leadership. St George’s has such a high calibre intake of prospective leaders and highly responsible students that selecting a few for “Prefectship” or House or School Captain, is always a tough decision, inevitably leaving perfectly able students disappointed at their lack of appointment.
New to St George’s? Do not despair at gaining status! Annually, many new Georgians have been made Prefects, House Captains, School Captains or Deputy School Captains, Boarding Prefects or Boarding Captains! Be pro-active, join in!
The roles comprise of:
The School Captains represent the Headmistress and her deputies in a range of ways. This may include making speeches at Open Evening, giving votes of thanks to visitors, reading in Chapel, delivering Assemblies, representing the Headmistress or the student body and organising whole School events, such as Education for Africa Day.
Hello Everyone! My name is Alice and I have the great privilege of being one of St Georges’ school captains for the 2023/2024 academic year. I currently study History, Economics and Politics- and am interested in doing a degree in history or PPE after sixth form.
I feel so grateful to have been given this opportunity to represent the student body and to have a chance to help shape a school which has had such a big role in shaping who I am today. Throughout my six years here, I have learnt the importance of pushing myself out of my comfort zone and taking up new opportunities.
It is important to me as a school captain to embody the key value of the school to ‘aim higher’ and encourage my fellow students to do the same.
I look forward to working as part of a team with Sarah, Seb and Billy, but also alongside the house captains and amazing prefect team of 92!!! I hope that throughout our tenure we will be able to have a positive lasting impact on our school community, and many future generations of Georgians, for years to come.
Hi, my name is Seb. In my 6 years at this school I have been able to witness first hand the effects of this school community, and now being able to represent it I feel truly blessed.
St Georges is defined by its student body and therefore as a team we aim to realise the power of this community, combining St Georges tradition with inclusivity to celebrate each and every student for the unique set of skills that they hold. Personally, I aim to dedicate time to support the community, aiming to be an approachable familiar face to all in order to bring up those around me.
I am excited to be working with Alice, Sarah and Billy for the next year and can guarantee that in the after-school cake fuelled meetings, frantic group chat exchanges and late night planning that the role entails, we will put the student body first and foremost in all decisions. There is so much we aim to do over the upcoming year; to give back and have a lasting impact on a community that we treasure is our combined goal.
Hi Everyone, my name’s Sarah and I’m currently studying History, Geography and Maths. I’ve been at St George’s since year 7 and am looking forward to being one of your school captains this year. From the beginning of my St George’s journey in year 7 I have looked up to the prefects, now I can’t quite believe my journey here is almost at its end! As school captain I hope to inspire younger students in the same way that I was by my predecessors. From acting as a liaison between pupils and staff to making lots of spreadsheets and google docs (much to the other captains’ dismay), I hope to use my skills to serve the community.
St George’s is a school with something for everybody and I’m looking forward to getting outside my comfort zone by participating and running activities I wouldn’t have pictured myself doing 6 years ago. In the future, I want to venture into a career where I can help people and make a positive difference in their lives. At the moment my role as school captain is my way to make a positive difference in this community. I’m looking forward to working with the entire prefect team and building on everyone’s strengths to make a good impact on the school community. We have an exciting year ahead of us and I know Seb, Alice, Billy and I will work effectively together and strive to be the representatives of the school that this amazing student body deserves!
Hi everyone, my name is Billy and I have been given the great privilege and responsibility of being a School Captain for the upcoming year. I am greatly looking forward to the year ahead and working with not only Alice, Sarah and Seb, but also the House Captains and their prefect teams. I'm taking Maths, Economics and Spanish A-Level and hope to study International Economics at university. I am very grateful for all the opportunities and experiences St. Georges has given me and intend to give back to the community which has helped shape me. Having never lived in the UK until I began boarding, I soon became aware how the strong connection between students is at St George’s, which resembles that of a close-knit family and led me to feel a real sense of community. I want pupils across the school to be able to feel that same connection with me. I plan to be a familiar face around school - someone who all pupils feel comfortable approaching and talking to about absolutely anything. I hope that throughout our tenure as school captains we can achieve our common goals and inspire generations of Georgians to come.
