"I'm up front, the prefects have got two compartments to themselves--"
- Percy (PS6)

Prefects

Some of the older pupils (students) in many secondary (12-18) schools are given duties supervising the younger children and assisting the teachers in maintaining discipline. Prefects are usually the most outstanding or best behaved students, but in some schools all the upper year pupils share prefect duties.
