One way that pupil leadership is valued and celebrated at Clapham Manor is through our House Captains.
To facilitate our new House Captains taking a proactive role in the school we elect them through a process involving applications for their position and candidates making speeches to their peers and teachers to show what skills and attributes they will bring to this role.
What are a House Captains’ Roles and Responsibilities?
The role of a House Captain is to lead their house throughout the year – this means being a positive role model at all times and representing their house with pride and enthusiasm. They also have a role to play in representing the school to our school community and beyond.
