Benchers, House Captains & Heads of School

Benchers

The Bench, Solihull School's own prefectorial body, like the Heads of School, is selected via a combination of pupil and staff voting and general feedback. Each section of the Senior School has its own 'Bench', though whilst the duties and requirements of the Lower and Middle School teams are section specific, the Sixth Form Bench operates on behalf of the whole school.

House Captains

There are two Sixth Form House Captains from each House, who work together to organise the school's House events, and their House's participation. The school hosts House Competitions in every area of co-curricular and academic life, including sport, debating, chess and drama.

Heads of School

The Heads of School are elected annually via a combination of pupil and staff voting and general feedback. Their primary responsibility is to run 'The Bench', our very own senior prefectorial body. The Heads of School have their own office in the Cooper Building, from which they orchestrate and manage the duty requirements that the school has of 'The Bench', a number totalling approximately 50. Throughout their period of office, the Heads of School are directly involved in all of the year's major events and occasions, for example; the Speeches and New Parents' Welcome Evenings.
