Girls Sixth Form

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 works with her with their own unique roles within the 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 for 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 pupils 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, addressing large groups, driving change, and harnessing their passions – these skills will enable our girls to go on to leadership roles in the future and allows them to become curious, resilient individuals. Girls Sixth Form

We have 7 prefect roles each year, which fall under the following roles:

  • Head Girl
  • Deputy Head Girl
  • Senior School
  • Prep School
  • Sports Captain
  • Wellbeing, pastoral and spiritual
  • Boarding and International

Girls on Board

We are proud to be a part ofGirls on Board’.  An approach that 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 to worry less, schools can focus more on the curriculum and the girls learn more effectively – because they are happier.
