Prefects and Student Leadership
Sixth Form Girls Leadership Opportunities
At Rye we believe that the Girls in the Sixth Form should play a role in the running of the school. Our Prefect Team is led by the Head Girl, and has a team that work with her with their own unique roles within school. The Prefect team works to ensure that the voice of all pupils at Rye is heard by liaising with teachers and Senior Leaders and by running School Councils attended by pupils of all ages. They also act as important role models to the rest of the school community.
The prefect team is certainly one that younger children look up to throughout their years at Rye, and many of our younger students already aspire to be a Prefect when their time comes.
These leadership roles enable Rye Sixth Form Girls to develop skills and gain experience in a number of key areas including organisation, address large groups, driving change and harnessing their passions – these skills will enable students to go on to further leadership in the future and allows them to become curious, resilient individuals. Girls Sixth Form
We have 8 prefect roles each year, which fall under the following roles:

Introducing our Prefect Team for 2020-2021
My name is Lucy Embers and I’m thrilled to be taking on the role of head girl this year. As a proud Rye St Antony student for nearly 14 years, I feel so privileged to be able to represent our community in this way during my final year at the school. I am a lover of all things political or historical and a keen debater, but more importantly, I am determined to make our 90th year as a school as memorable as possible. I look forward to working with as many of you as possible!
Deputy Head Girl
My name is Isabelle Lafferty, I’ve been at the school for 9 years now and have loved every single one of them. It’s a huge privilege to be Rye’s Deputy Head Girl; I am very excited to bring new ideas and to embrace the opportunities it gives me to represent students from across the school, their voice and ideas.
Senior School Prefect
Pastoral and Wellbeing Prefect
I look forward to working getting back to school and hopefully leaving a positive impression on the Rye community in its 90th anniversary.
Prep School Prefect
I am Jess Tong, in the year 2020 to 2021 I will be taking the role of Prep school prefect. I like to keep a positive attitude to everything I do. I also get on well with all kinds of people. As a prep school prefect, I will help out at all key events in prep school and to provide an important connection between not just prep school pupils but also pupils from all the years and staff.
Boarding and International Prefect
My name is Tosia and I am very excited to take the role of Boarding and International Prefect. As an exchange student from Poland, I feel privileged to be able to contribute to the school in this way. I cannot wait to work with all of you to maintain a friendly and supportive environment at Rye especially for all the boarding and international students.
Girls on Board
We are proud to be a part of ‘Girls on Board’. An approach which helps girls, their parents and their teachers to understand the complexities and dynamics of girl friendships. The language, methods and ideas empower girls to solve their own friendship problems and recognises that they are usually the only ones who can. By empowering girls to find their own solutions, parents need worry less, schools can focus more on the curriculum and the girls learn more effectively – because they are happier.
