Student Leadership

Chobham Academy Prefects

Our academy aims to develop in its students a positive and enterprising attitude to learning.  In everything we do, we will embed our six core values to ensure students fulfil their potential:

  • Excellence: Be exceptional in everything we do.
  • Respect: Be dedicated to relationships.
  • Integrity: Be true to our word.
  • Innovation: Be challenging in our approach.
  • Collaboration: Be one team.
  • Trust: Be open and transparent.

Academy Prefects make a valuable contribution to the wider school community at Chobham Academy, taking on important leadership roles, assisting and supporting both staff and pupils, liaising with prospective parents/carers, students and other visitors and acting as excellent role models for their peers and younger students.

As Academy Prefect, we offer students the opportunity to:

  • Develop their leadership skills;
  • Develop their ability to work in a team;
  • Develop their ability to use your initiative;
  • Become actively involved in the day to day running of the school;
  • Extend their Curriculum Vitae (CV);
  • Provide positive evidence for Sixth Form, College and job references;
  • Become a more well-rounded human being.
