Student leaders are voted into positions on the Student Leadership Team (SLT) by their peers and teachers, other students are encouraged to join at Year Representatives.

College Captains exist at each year level. The prospective College Captains perform a speech to their peers before voting occurs. Following the voting, the prospective Captains are interviewed by the SLT and are selected based on a combination of the voting and their interview.
