One of the key student leadership roles here at King's College, is the role of a Sacristan. Students become eligible to fulfil this Chapel prefect role, in their final year.
The Sacristan team are made up of four Senior Sacristans, together with eleven House Sacristans – selected from each Day and Boarding House.
The Sacristans are one of the hardest working groups of leaders in the school, and traditionally do an outstanding job. Their role is to support the work of the Chaplains, to be a role model for other students in faith and character, and to also help organise aspects of the Community Service Programme.
To be a Sacristan is a complete commitment to the School, the Reverends and God. The Sacristans at school are arguably one of the hardest working teams in the entire school as they are on duty every day of the school year and constantly have work to do. Not only is it hard work, but it is also very rewarding work. To me, being a Sacristan meant complete dedication to the Chapel at King's. It made my final year busy, but if I was not a Sacristan, it would not have been nearly as enjoyable. It can be hard work being a Sacristan, but it is well worth it.
