Towards the end of fifth year students who are interested in putting themselves forward for the role of Prefect in Sixth year fill out an application form. Suitable candidates will be chosen who have demonstrated their leadership within the student body and have the qualities deemed necessary to undertake a leadership role within the school.

Prefects carry out a number of important tasks within the school:
• Act as role models for younger students
• Represent the student body
• Represent the school externally
• Assist in the maintenance of discipline within the school
• Support and help staff
• Carry out other important functions in the school when requested.
• Represent the school at school related events.

Prefects are expected to be vigilant at all times. It is the responsibility of all prefects, whether on duty or not, to assist with maintaining good order and good standards of behaviour in the school and its environs.

Those selected as Prefects then have the opportunity to put themselves forward for the role of Head Prefect. They will get the opportunity to speak to staff and the students in their year about why they believe they should be chosen as Head Prefect for the year. After a combined vote from staff and students in their year the two students with the most votes become Head Prefect and Deputy Head Prefect. This incoming year (2022-2023) Hugh Sowray and Jon Canning have been chosen for the roles of Head Prefect and Deputy Head Prefect.

The other students who have been chosen for the role of prefect for 2022-2023 are: Taimoor Afzal, Oisin Brennan, Daniel Cox, Sean Emmanuel, Niall Golden, James Kelly, Rory Kelly, Darragh Martin, Cian Towey, Paul Watson and Cormac Victory.
