To become a house captain, you must be chosen by other students in your form. They're are many ways of being chosen, but the popular method is by voting. You are also sometimes given 30 seconds to talk to your form as to why you should be chosen as house captain. Afterwards, the form decides, and the one that has the most votes is chosen.
House captains can change every year, so there are 5 possible chances as to becoming a house captain.
When being nominated for house captain, they're will be called for a meeting. In this meeting, they should sign an agreement which confirms their responsiblity and role as a house captain. Once this has been verified, the deputy head and the head of house should also sign this. This makes you a house captain.
Invalid Contribution to RoleEdit
If a house captain is found misbehaving, or not being commited to his/her role, they can be violated and no longer become a house captain. Instead, their badge can be given to another student, making them no longer a house captain. This is stated on the agreement.
House captains are responsible for their forms, and should organise and take in ideas. They are representives of their house, and sometimes should think of new fund-rasing ideas for their form. House captains can plan events, attend meetings, and are permitted to answer any questions that their form has. They can work alongside their form tutor and head of house.
House captains are given a badge. The colour varies as to what house you are in (e.g, if you are in Fenton, you are given a green badge). Written on the badge is 'HOUSE CAPTAIN'. They are given this in the initial meeting, when they sign their agreement.
