Grainville School Prefects
All senior students at Grainville can apply for the role of a Prefect. These students hold posts of responsibility and are positive ambassadors for the school. There are currently 44 prefects in Year 11.
Grainville has an elected Student Council who meet regularly with their staff coordinator. Council members are representatives and ambassadors for the general student body. The Student Council are co-chaired by the Head Boy and Head Girl. Students throughout the school are encouraged to play an active role in student matters and they can contact the Student Council through their elected form representative.
Students from each year group are trained as peer mentors to support students on induction to the school and during lunchtimes, or they may also provide support for our less confident students throughout the year.
Students in Year 8 are given the responsibility to develop their inter-personal skills and self-confidence through their participation in the two day student receptionist programme. They will meet and greet visitors to the school, plan and undertake guided tours and support the front office staff. They will need to communicate with confidence, be polite and courteous and show good organisational skills.
Students are encouraged to develop their leadership roles through a wide range of Sporting Leadership positions.
