The two most prestigious defined leadership roles are the two Chief Cadet Captains of the College (CCCCs – Head Boy and Girl) who provide a valuable link between the pupils, staff and the Headmaster. The CCCCs carry out a lot of performing roles, such as reading out the sports reports during Monday’s Headmaster’s Assemblies and summarising the year, on behalf of the Upper Sixth, on Founders’ Day (last day of the school year) which serves as a farewell to Pangbourne. They are also ambassadors for Pangbourne when representing the College at external events.
As well as the CCCCs, there are Divisional Chief Cadet Captains (CCCs – Head of Houses) for each Division (House) who are expected to set the example for the rest of the Division to follow through their effort, appearance and commitment to Pangbourne life. Chief Cadet Captains are approachable to their peers and reflect the College’s Flag Values.
Each Division has Cadet Captains (CCs – House Prefects) who help the Divisional Chiefs and are responsible for creating a good atmosphere within the Division. Other defined leadership roles include the Senior Scholar, New Entry Cos, Overseas Cos, two Guard Commanders and the Marching Band’s Drum Major.
