Responsibility in the Sixth Form

Sixth-Formers are given more choice and freedom than junior pupils and are expected to respond positively to their treatment as young men and women.

The Headmaster with the School PrefectsMany Sixth-Formers become Prefects following an application process not dissimilar to real job applications.
Each summer term, Lower Sixth pupils are asked to send in a letter of motivation to the Headmaster. Candidates are then interviewed by a panel made up of the Headmaster, the Deputy Head and the Head of Sixth Form.



Our Prefects’ responsibilities and duties include:

  • to be positive role models and set good example to all the younger pupils
  • to help with lunch queues
  • to attend and assist at Parents’ Evenings
  • to help with the organisation of schools events such as open days and charity events
  • to assist with the particular aspect of their allocated part of the school, be it Priory House, the Chapel or the Art Department to name but a few.

House Prefects are expected to assist their Housemaster or Housemistress in the running of the House as well as perform duties throughout the School.

The responsibility element of of being a Dover College Prefect is a vital component that will stand these pupils in a very good stead for their future life and career plan.

The Head Boy and Head Girl have overall responsibility for the Prefects’ routine.
