The interview process for the role of School Captain at the school is rigorous and made up of five rounds. Firstly, the pupils must be officially submitted by their peers as a recommendation to the Deputy Head Pastoral, Matthew Fogg and Deputy Head Academic, Matt Syddall. The nominated pupils then make their own decision on whether they would like to apply for the role by sending in a letter of application, which is then followed by interviews with Mr Fogg and Mr Syddall. A shortlist is then created and a second interview takes place with the Head Master. This year, both pupils were interviewed by My Smith and Dr Murphy. The final round is then back to the pupils, who vote for their preferred candidate of five.
