Honiton Community College has elected a new team of prefects.
The students underwent a gruelling process to be elected and win their well-deserved tie, badge and new status.
They each have different roles within college and will be involved in various activities throughout the next 12 months.
They will also each have a project of their own choice to complete – such as setting up a wellbeing drop-in centre for fellow students - which will be announced once these have been decided.
Hannah Bown, head of PE and head of life skills at the college, told the Herald: “With the exam season almost on us for our year 11 students, it was time for our year 11 prefects to hand over their responsibilities to a new group of year 10 students.

“We would like to say a fond farewell and a huge thank-you to our current year 11 prefects. These were Amberina Askew, Ashley Mitchell, Charles Finney, Charlie Davies, Lauren Gavin, Rebecca Spence and Will Lancaster.
