Captains, Vice Captains and representatives from each school year group become
involved in the democratic process, discover leadership, engage their peers in
finding a voice, become more tolerant and co-operative members of society and
develop a sense of respect, achievement and belonging to their school.
As well as representing the student body, the Captains represent the whole school, its values, its good name and honour. College Captains are leaders, independent and reliable. They are able to inspire others; they enjoy the confidence and respect of students and teachers.
